    Aunt Helen was a wonderful woman with a kind and gentle heart. I consider my self fortunate to have known her as a child, she never spoke a cross word, always had a youthful smile and was full of life. The world is truly a smaller place with her passing and God?s kingdom has gained a truly beautiful soul. It is comforting to know that Aunt Helen was able to spend the final years of her life surrounded by the families of her brother Ralph Lynn Sr. and nephew Ralph Lynn Jr. who opened both their hearts and homes to Aunt Helen.

    Aunt Helen was one of the kindest and loving persons anyone could have known. She was a stranger to you for only a short time and then she was forever your friend. Thanks to her niece and nephew Ralph and Elaine she enjoyed a wonderful life after she left Michigan. She was made welcomed and loved at every family function.
    We always enjoyed her visits to see us in Florida. She will be sadly missed by all of us. We will always remember her gentel voice and sincere kindness. We want to thank the Lynn family for treating her so special. She will always have a special place in our heart. Our prayers are with her and the family.

    Love Jim and Sharon Storms

    I have known Aunt Helen since I was born, and my Mom met Helen at age 12 when Uncle Clare brought her into the family.

    Her and Uncle Clare share all my memories of growing up. Aunt Helen always made sure I got an Easter dress for my birthdayApril, and her and Uncle Clare never missed any important date of my life.

    Another whole era is gone from my life, and I don’t think I’ll ever meet a more glamorous, refined, kind and caring person.

    Thanks for bringing Aunt Helen home to rest with Uncle Clare, Richard and the rest of our family.

    In everything and everyone through my life, the happiest memories of my life were with Grandma Helen. MY BEST memories as a child involve her. Up North Michigan will never be the same without her and Grandpa Clare and their humor. Life itself will never be the same, she made a true difference in anyone she touched and will live on forever in our family! We can only strive to be what she was as a matriarch.
