Mrs. Shelby L. Lynn

1937 - 2021

Heaven is running more smoothly, because Shelby is there. Every angel has been greeted with a warm smile and hug; the littlest angels have been read to and made to feel special.

Shelby was a dedicated Auxiliary member of the Gideons International, actively placing God's Word throughout the world and sharing her testimony and the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  During the winter, she and Wilton participated with the Vero Beach, Florida Gideon Camp.  She is sorely missed, although we rejoice with the angels.  We love you Wilton!  Steve Lewis, Florida State Gideon Vice President

Many years ago right out of college, I had the privilege of teaching across the hall from Mrs. Lynn. For the 9 years we taught together, she was such a wonderful mentor and source of support to me. I will forever remember her incredible smile! She always insisted I call her, Shelby; however, I held her in such high regard, it seemed disrespectful and to me, she was always... Mrs. Lynn.

Mr. Lynn, Gloria and Serena, you have my deepest sympathy. God Bless.
