In Loving Memory

July 11, 1954-July 11, 2021

Lynn Dee Boer has died at age 67. Lynn Dee was born in Grand Forks, ND to Jim and Darlene

Kontz. She grew up on the family farm as the eldest of 4 children, refining her leadership

qualities, while she accomplished any challenge presented. She drove any tractor from Alice

Chalmers to John Deere. She helped with swatting the grain and combining back when they

were two separate events. She took part in growing and harvesting sugar beets, and drove

huge trucks from the field to the market. She graduated from Oslo Public High School at the top

of her class, and later attended Trinity School of Nursing in Minot, ND, graduating with her RN


She married the love of her life, Jack Boer and had two beautiful children while they started their

family in Canada. She loved gardening, cooking, and reading books to her kids. She loved to

learn. She also enjoyed a great story and could spin a good tale herself.

As time passed her mental health deteriorated and I watched disease replace this vibrant

woman with suspicious thoughts and an altered perception of reality. With the help of many

people and different agencies Lynn Dee remained safe and well cared for.

I would like to express my deep and sincere gratitude to Jennifer, Coconino County Public

Fiduciary, Kelly, hospice nurse at Youngtown skilled care facility, disability attorney, Irene Barrow esq,,Flagstaff Emergency Physicians, men and women of Coconino County Sheriff's

Department, Flagstaff Police Department, The Guidance Center, Southwest Behavioral Health

and many others too numerous to name.

Lynn is survived by her two children, James Boer (Crystal French, Ashley French) and Sharysse

Boer, grandchildren Kroalun and Surissa Boer, her mother, Darlene (Kontz) Johnson and her

sisters,Bonnie (Kontz) Goedecke (John Goedecke), Shelly (Kontz) Salmon (Andy Salmon) and

her brother Mike Kontz (Pauline Kontz) and many other relatives.
