Her parents, Harry and Mabel Boogren, preceded Lynn in death.

She is survived by her loving husband of 44 years Dean; her sons, Christopher of Lino Lakes and Eric and his wife, Cindy and her granddaughter, Katelyn, of Forest Lake.

The death of a loved one is such a painful time. Only our heavenly Father Jehovah truly understands the depth of your pain, and offers comfort and hope to each of you at this most difficult time. Please read together as a family Isaiah 26:19, John 5:28,29, Psalm 37:29. May these verses serve to bring you comfort, hope and peace.
My sincerest sympathy to the family.

I'm really sad to hear about cousin Lynnie (married to Deanie) not being with us any more. Family vacations at Forest Lake are some of my fondest memories of growing up. Each of my cousins were important to my education and Lynn's role was always to try to get me to toughen up and not to be so timid. She was bold and outgoing and fearless and she had a "can do" attitude. I enjoyed watching her as she took on a new water skiing challenge, put minnows on a fishing line without flinching, planned an adventure to a neighboring cottage in the middle of the night, or stood up to Auntie Minnie. I wish I could be with you in Minnesota today to celebrate Lynn's life. Love, Alice

My earliest memory of Lynn was when I pushed her in the buggy as a new born in Milwaukee.
In her early childhood there was always a dog.
She tossed rice at our wedding in Denver, when she was 5.
Many miles have separated us over the years. I am thankful we could keep in touch by phone. More recently, thankful for the brief hospital hellos.
We will be with you in spirit this weekend. I am truly sorry we cannot attend the gathering.
Sending love and hugs to you Dean and all your family. Aunt Shirley and Uncle Fred
