Lynn was born the daughter of Eugene and Dorothy Kelly in Sioux City. She was a new-year’s day baby, born January 1, 1958, sharing the same birthdate with her father.

Lynn was a proud graduate of East High School, graduating in 1976. She earned a Clerical Practices degree at Western Iowa Tech, and moved to Ankeny, Iowa, where she worked for the Iowa Beer and Liquor Control Department routing trucks to state-owned liquor stores.
After being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, Lynn returned to Sioux City, where she remained an active member of Morningside Presbyterian Church and the Siouxland Multiple Sclerosis support group. She volunteered at Health and Human Services and the public library. Lynn was eventually admitted to Embassy Rehab and Care Center until her passing.

She is preceded in death by her parents. Survivors include two brothers: Roger (Kathy) Kelly and Keith (Susan) Kelly. Lynn’s four nieces and nephews include Kristin Chmiel and Nathan Kelly, and Jessica and Nicholas Kelly. Numerous aunts, uncles and cousins join in remembering her.

The family extends a special THANKS to the staff at Embassy Rehab and Care Center. As a courageous daughter and sister, Lynn had a long bout with MS, but never complained – mainly due to the caring Embassy staff.
