Lynn Frances Livingston Obituary
Lynn Frances Livingston died Tuesday, May 31, 2011, after a yearlong battle with cancer.
She was born July 2, 1942, in Council Bluffs, Iowa, to Hugh Boyd and Ethelyn Margaret (Hansen) Livingston. She grew up in Dubois, Wyo., and graduated from Dubois High School in 1960.
Lynn entered the U.S. Army in 1962 and retired as a sergeant 1st class in 1982. During her tour she served at duty stations in Alabama, California, Colorado, Germany, Oklahoma and Wyoming. Following her retirement, she pursued her love of animals by opening a boarding kennel in Anniston, Ala. She also continued to work for the Defense Department as a civil servant at the Anniston Army Depot and Holloman Air Force Base, from where she subsequently retired in 2006.
Lynn's warm personality and huge heart, combined with a career that took her throughout the country and overseas, garnered her an abundance of friends whom she spoke of fondly and dearly cherished. She loved road trips to visit friends and family. She also loved cheering on her two favorite football teams, the Auburn Tigers and the Denver Broncos.
Lynn's final days were spent under hospice care at the home of her niece in Portland, Ore., where she spent quality time with her family.
She is survived by two brothers, Hugh Boyd Livingston Jr., of Dubois, and James Livingston, of Lake Forest, Calif.
At Lynn's request, no funeral services were held. A celebration of her life will take place later this year in Dubois, where her ashes will be spread over her parents' graves overlooking the ranch where she grew up.
If desired, donations in Lynn's honor may be made to the League for Animal Welfare in Anniston (www.leaguepets.org) or to a local animal charity.
