Services will be at 4:00 P.M., Tuesday, May 12, 2020, at Boxwell Brothers Ivy Chapel. Arrangements are by Boxwell Brothers Funeral Directors.
Lynn was born December 13, 1956
in Mountain View, MO to Nancy Brimm and Ervin Conner. Rosie Conner was also instrumental in helping raise Lynn throughout her childhood & youth.
There is no role in life that is more essential than that of motherhood. Lynn, known to so many in her life as ‘Mom’ or ‘Grandma’, not only accepted this role with her own children & grandchildren but graciously accepted this role with so many others. When others looked at Lynn, they were looking at the purest love they would ever know. She exhibited strength and dignity, she laughed without fear of the future. When she spoke, her words were wise, and she provided instructions with kindness. Her love could be defined simply as the fuel that would enable a normal human being to do the impossible. Lynn never underestimated the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which she knew would have the potential to turn a life around. Along with her amazing heart, Lynn was also known to be witty and was always ready with a remark that was clever, funny, and timed just right. As simple as it sounds, Lynn was there for people. Not always to fix something or do anything in particular, but just to let people know they were supported and cared about by her.
She is preceded in death by her parents, Nancy Brimm and Ervin Conner, and son, Brandon Parks.
She is survived by mother, Rosie Conner; brothers, JR, Dickie, Ronnie, Steve and Kevin; sisters, Shirley and Tammy; daughters, Alecia, Michelle, Nathalie and Jenni; son-in-laws, Dee and Nathan; grandchildren, Brianna, Meghan, Cisco, Mallory, Shania, Michaela, Dre’son, Baylor, Hollynd and Derrick; great-grandchildren, Ayden, Saidee, Maleah, Aahlaeyah, JJ, Evianna, Adley and Ace.
