Lynn was born March 3, 1923 in San Antonio, Texas. She was raised in Houston, Texas. In 1943, Lynn joined the Navy Waves. Later she joined the Red Cross and was stationed in Japan where she met John E. Lang, an Army Officer. They were married November 4, 1955. Together, and along with their family, they lived in many places around the world. Jack retired from the Army in 1982, and they settled in San Antonio, Texas. Jack passed away May 2, 2001. Lynn stayed in San Antonio until June 2005 when she moved to Austin to be near her daughter Lisa.

Lynn loved to travel. She visited many places all over the world. When her oldest daughter moved to Alaska, Lynn traveled there for many summers. Her last trip to Alaska was in 2007. Lynn loved to watch sports. She spent many an evening watching football, basketball, or baseball. She was even caught watching fishing a time or two. She was on a bowling team in San Antonio as well as in Austin. She gave up bowling when she was 90 years old. While Lynn enjoyed playing many games, her favorite game to play was bridge. Lynn played her last game of bridge just one week before she passed away.

Lynn was a "go getter". She was often heard saying in her later years, "I can do this" and she did just that. She loved to be around people, and made many friends. She will be missed by many.

A funeral is scheduled for 10:00 A.M on Friday, June 23, 2017 at Cook-Walden Funeral Home, 6100 North Lamar Blvd, Austin, Texas. All are welcome to attend and celebrate Lynn's life.
