Lynwood Hewitt Rummel Obituary
March 28, 1941 - February 1, 2018 Lynwood ("Lynn") Hewitt Rummel (née Hartlove) beloved wife, sister, mother, and grandmother, went home to the Lord on February 1, 2018 after a valiant battle with cancer, despite treatment and optimism. As she loved her family, she was loved in return by all who knew her. Lynn was born in Towson, MD. She met Kirk, her husband of 59 years, at Drexel University. They settled their young family in Havertown, PA, where Girl Scouts and PTA kept her busy. When new transit systems were needed across the world, as "The Trailing Spouse," she moved to Miami, Los Angeles, New Jersey, New Delhi, Bangkok, Taipei, and Hong Kong, settling in San Diego. Lynn prided herself in the ability to move from country to country in four checked bags (not counting shoes). Lynn was always active in her churches, most recently Hope United Methodist Church in Rancho Bernardo. She shared her amazing green thumb and her wonderful sense of humor with the Poway Garden Club, the "Better Breathers" and "The Liberal Ladies." Her love for her garden was exceeded only by her love of her family. Lynn is survived by her husband, Kirk; her three children: Brooke (her favorite), Kirk Jr. (her real favorite), and Blake (her actual favorite), Blake's husband, Jess Whitehill Jr., and many grandsons: Daniel, Danny, Mark, Matthew, Trey (Grace) and Kai. Lynn is also survived by her brothers Lance and Andy, brother Wally having passed in 1996, as well as the cats, Lucy and Leonard (who were truly the favorites). Lynn was proud to have raised a teacher, an accountant and an attorney, whom all willingly gave and received support and advice (all for free). A Celebration of Life will take place on Friday, February 9th at 3pm at Hope United Methodist Church in Rancho Bernardo, reception to follow. All are welcome.
