She married the love of her life, Andy Watkins, of Vandervoort on June 26, 1982. Lynn made many close, lifelong friends through her job at Walmart and other places where she worked in Polk County.

Lynn is survived by her husband Andy; her son Adam Watkins and wife Kathryn; daughter Christina Neblick and husband Steven; grandchildren Xane, Maxine, Cole, Miranda, Alex, and Jenna; sisters Sally Hill, Caryl Cotter, and Sharon Harp, and many nieces, nephews, and loved ones.

Lynn was preceded in death by her parents; two brothers, Billy Hill and Donnie Hill; and one sister, Barbara Dulinsky.

In addition to the deep love and pride Lynn held for her family and friends, Lynn will be remembered for her passion for her beloved pets, cooking and baking, music, arts and crafts, and gardening. Lynn touched the lives of all who knew her through her genuine kindness and fun spirit.

Friends and family are invited to attend Lynn’s Celebration of Life service to be held Saturday, January 13, at 10:00 a.m. at Midway Pentecostal Church followed by a reception at the Community Building at Vandervoort.
