Linda Jean "Lynn" Lindquist, age 70, passed away on Sept. 9, 2017, of natural causes.
Lynn's adventurous life began on July 31, 1947, in Honolulu, Hawaii, with her parents, John and Jean Sutherman. Raised and educated abroad in Italy, Austria, Germany and England, she learned several languages, studied music and developed her thespian skills. The Suthermans were proud of her many talents.
Her family moved back to the USA when she was 17. Her adventures continued when the family moved to Valdez, Alaska, for the pipeline boom. Later, Lynn worked for the Municipality of Anchorage, where she met and married the love of her life, Gary Lindquist, almost 40 years ago, and together with their daughter, Heather, created a loving and supportive family.
In retirement, she enjoyed summers on the Kenai River and winter months in Eagle River. The family made tea cup bird feeders for craft shows. All were touched by her creativity and passion for life. She loved her dog, Black Jack, quilting, stained glass work, gardening, baking and playing Bunco, and was a wonderful listener, but most importantly she created lasting, loving friendships wherever she went.
Lynn was cherished by her daughter, as she was an amazing mother and they were best friends. Lynn was loved by all the neighborhood children. Lynn's kind spirit and fabulous sense of humor brought people together. Oh, how she will be missed.
She is survived by her husband, Gary; her daughter, Heather; her brother, John; her sister, Wendy (Greg); nephews, Carl and Kent (Kateri); and great-nephew, James; and great-niece, Stella. She is also survived by another sister, Judy.
Lynn's burial will be held in Alaska at Fort Richardson National Cemetery, on Wednesday, Sept. 20, 2017, beginning with the procession at the Ft. Richardson gate at 2:45 p.m.
