Bud @ Dorothy Roy 4/13/2017 5:03:38 PM Dorothy and I have been remembering Lynda and Bob and the many good times we had together in the 60's and 70's; the many camping and canoeing trips, skiing in Lake Springfield, the many card games that lasted well into the night, drive-in theatres that would kick us out for disturbing the peace (I tried cooking inside the car, and blew my cornet), the Scottie girl outfits worn in State Trasurers race, and many more fun times. We will always cherish those wonderful memories. She is continuing having fun up in heaven. Kendra Gilchrist 4/14/2017 2:53:54 PM I am so very sorry. I send my prayers to friends and family of Lynda's. May you find comfort in knowing she is in the most wonderful place and will always be in your hearts. Heather Kiser 4/17/2017 1:10:28 PM My heart is so heavy for you all - may God's love surround you and carry you through this most difficult time. All my love to you, Bob, Shane, Connie, and all who are affected by this deep loss. Hopefully there is comfort that she is never lost for a single moment in all of our hearts and souls. Charlie Wolters 4/17/2017 2:32:54 PM Grandma Lynda had a very kind soul. She was a pleasure to talk to, although sadly I didn't have many opertunities to do so. It was clear that she cared about a lot of people, and enjoyed spending her time with helping others. Grandma Lynda was very well loved by many, and her memory will be kept alive and cherished for a very long time. My best wishes and strength to all family and friends in these hard times. Makenna Fitzsimmons 4/17/2017 4:16:43 PM She set my place at the table with the same Miss Muffet plates, even when I thought I was too old for them. She used the same toaster that sang the same Mickey Mouse tune for breakfast in the mornings. She always had ginger ale and Klondike bars in the garage. She loved her habitual bridge games and brunches and knitting, but these traditions did not negate my grandmother’s love for the spontaneous. Every time I visited, she was sure to have something new up her sleeve for us to experiment with. Now sometimes, this was fantastic, and we would end up with amazing snow cones made fresh in her kitchen. Other times, it wasn’t so great, and we ended up with maple brown sugar tilapia for dinner. But the mess we left in the kitchen never mattered. My grandma took life for all it had, and she had fun in everything she did. She taught me the importance of trying something new, just because you could. She taught me to play piano, she taught me to knit hats off looms, and she taught me the importance of brunch. I will always remember attending one of her Red Hat Society luncheons, dressed in the pink garb she’d managed to talk me into. At the time, I had the biggest aversion to the color pink a child could muster, but it was important to my grandma that I wear it so I could show off my status as a “Pink Hatter”, a title I earned for being under 50 and her granddaughter. Watching her that day, I realized her ability to converse with everyone and to make everyone feel included. She did something for me then that no other adult had, she invited me into her life and encouraged me to participate in it. I will miss her dearly. Kathy Lau 4/17/2017 10:35:03 PM My deepest sympathies go out to you Bob, Shane & Iggy and Kent & Connie. May God grant you peace and strength during this difficult time. My thoughts and prayers are with you today and always. Lynda will always remain in our hearts. Love Kathy Rita Valeri 4/18/2017 10:47:15 AM I can't think of anything that Lynda was not an expert at. She was so much fun to be with. She was a BLWC friend and in my bridge groups. She tried to teach me to knit! No success! I can't believe she is gone - I know she must be in Heaven. PrimeLending 4/18/2017 2:02:37 PM We are all at the PrimeLending Atlanta office thinking about the Fitzsimmons Family. We hope that the celebration of life today will help to ease the transition for each of you. Our thoughts, hearts and prayers are with you. PrimeLending, Atlanta
