In Loving Memory

Lynn, Susan Josephine (nee Swartz)

October 11, 1942 - May 12, 2024

Susan Josephine Lynn entered into rest on May 12, 2024. Beloved wife of the late Thomas R. Lynn; beloved mother of Michelle Lynn Ehlert, and Jonathan S. Lynn; grandmother to Abigail Fedyschyn (Jon), Heidi Ehlert, and Brady Ehlert; great grandmother to Ella Bea Fedyschyn. Susan is survived by her brother Marc Swartz (Janet); her sister Nancy Van Aman; her nephews Timothy Swartz, Matthew Swartz (Monique), and Matthew Vermeeren; her nieces Kara Swartz, Aleksandra Trower (Kevin), great nephews and nieces; and many friends.

Born October 11, 1942 in St. Louis Missouri; her parents were Phillip W. Swartz and Virginia Bergen Swartz. Susan graduated from Maplewood Richmond Heights High School. She attended Central Missouri State University in Warrensburg, Missouri with dual degrees in social studies and home economics.

During summers in college, Susan worked as a waitress at various restaurants at Lake of the Ozarks to pay for her education. This was a fondly remembered time in her life with a lot of fun. After college, she worked as a middle/high school teacher, which is where Tom and Susan met in Kansas City, Missouri in 1968. Ultimately, they moved to St. Louis where Susan held several positions in the banking industry during her career.

An avid and excellent cook; Susan also loved gardening, sewing, and reading. A lifelong Democrat; Susan and Tom worked as election workers during many elections. They traveled extensively using their 2 timeshares; and particularly loved rural Arkansas for trips.

In her last selfless act on earth, Susan graciously donated her body to St. Louis University. There will be no formal services held.

Words can never say enough about how much we miss Susan and will forever remember her with love and affection.
