Lyndian found her love for nature’s creatures and her faith. She enjoyed the simple things in life. Her greatest attribute was her love for all God’s creatures. Some of the highlights in her life included journeying to Alaska in April of 1979. She resided in Anchorage, Alaska where her hard work ethic was noticed when she was made Waitress of the Year. She received an award from Governor Tony Knowles for this accomplishment. She also was proud to have worked in the theatre in wardrobe on Cats, Phantom of the Opera, Nut Cracker Etc. She lived in Alaska for 30 years before moving back to Wisconsin in 2009 to be with her ailing mother.
As some people come into our lives and quickly go. We’ll never forget the day the angels came to bring her home. We will always love you, Lyndian.
