Lynn Lindstrom

Lynn A. Lindstrom, 74, of Mountain Home, passed away on Thursday, Dec. 9, 2010, at her home.

In typical Lynn style, she requested that no one make a big "fuss" over her passing and to remember her as each knew her in life. Cremation was under the direction of Rost Funeral Home, McMurtrey Chapel.

Lynn was born on July 8, 1936, in Altadena, Calif., the daughter of Aaron and Mildred (Tuttle) Giswein.

She grew up in California. She enjoyed the beach, water skiing, snow skiing and camping.

Lynn and Ron (her late husband) with other friends started "Covina Car Couples," a sports car club. For many years they enjoyed rally races all over the West Coast. Later she became a big NASCAR fan, rarely missing a race.

In 1972, they moved to central California, to manage a resort at Lake Nacimiento with their three children. During the next 18 years at the resort they raised their kids to appreciate the rural outdoor life that southern California couldn't provide.

Once all the children were in school, Lynn took on a position as a wine-tasting attendant at a local winery. She learned to appreciate good wine and remained in that industry until her retirement.

Lynn came to Mountain Home in 1995 to take care of her aging mother. She soon realized that she was surrounded by wonderful friends and neighbors.

She was an avid bowler and enjoyed going to all the tournaments.

She never missed an episode of Jeopardy. All those that knew her, knew not to call her during that time frame.

She came to know and love the Ferraro's as her Idaho extended family.

Her greatest love was her family, doing things with them and for them whenever she could.

Lynn is survived by her son, Jon Lindstrom, of Mountain Home, her daughters, Erika Sharp of Virginia and Ronda Peterson of California, and four grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Aaron Giswein and Mildred Turner, and by her husband, Ronald Johan Lindstrom.
