"Picture a Tom Boy in lace, that's Lindy with the laughing face". That song lyric describes our sister Lynn, who will always be remembered for her laughter and practical jokes, but especially for her warm and giving heart and beautiful smile.
Lynn Rene' Marchand
Feb. 21, 1953 - Mar. 11, 2012
Born Lynn Rene' Marchand on February 21, 1953, Lynn was the fourth child of Bill and Mickey Marchand.
She joined her brother, Bill and sisters, Kandy and Cindy. Growing up in Everett, Lynn attended Madison Elementary, Evergreen Jr. High, Cascade High School, and Everett Community College. Lynn was blessed with wonderful lifelong friends who were always glad to share in her jokes and games.
After leaving her longtime employment with Sears, Lynn joined Dad's business, Marchand's Studio and Everett Camera Shop, where she became a photographer's assistant. It was there she found the perfect place to play her tricks on the unsuspecting who dared enter the dark room. She would laugh so hard it was easy to join her in delight even if you were the victim!
She adored her family and friends. Big brother Bill, taught her to play baseball where she became the teams "little mascot" at the age of four. She played games with her sisters, managing to win by frequently changing the rules!
Sadly, Lynn succumbed to a terrible disease that slowly and painfully took her life. Her beautiful face, laughing eyes, and bright spirit will never leave us. She is now happily climbing trees in the orchards of Heaven, free from pain and smiling with great joy and happiness. Although we will miss you, we want to remember...
"You'll have fun, fun, fun 'till your Daddy takes his T Bird away." Give Mom and Dad a hug.
Lynn is survived by her brother, Bill (Barbara) Marchand; sisters, Kandy (Chuck) Goetz, and Cindy (John) MacKenzie; numerous nieces and nephews: many great nieces and nephews; wonderful friends; and extended family. We will continue to pray for her.
