Carole, Christopher, and Michael. I'm so sorry for your loss. My sister Linda and I walked to school with Carole and Lynn. We played cards when our children were young. Lynn will always be a part of my memories.

Had the pleasure to work with your Mom at PACE.. Really fun to be around. I may have been her trainer when she first started. She talked of her boys and grandchildren often. Take Care and GOD BLESS YOU ALL !!

Downtown Lynn Brown!!!! I had the pleasure of meeting Lynn recently (2019) and she has made me smile ever since! She was funny, quirky, generous, and strong! She told the best stories and had such a love for cats (really all animals). We will miss you here!

My heart and prayers go out to all of Lynn's family and friends. I worked with Lynn at the McHenry County Sheriff's Office and we had a beautiful friendship up until we both moved away. I literally was just thinking about Lynn the past couple of weeks and I am saddened to hear about her passing. God Bless.
