Lynn Beer, age 76, passed away peacefully March 10, 2019 due to diabetes and congestive heart failure. She was born August 11, 1943 in Fort Wayne, Indiana to Carl and Annie Lynn. She eloped and married her longtime friend and love, James Nathaniel Beer, in October of 1960.
Lynn loved to love on people. She sewed dolls and little quilted sayings constantly. Her hands were rarely still. Raggedy Annes and Andies were her favorites. She also shared her love with food such as fresh cut fries for her grandsons, lasagna and real fried chicken.
For many years Lynn worked at Atria/Crosslands Retirement Community in Berne. It suited her servant heart. She said she did it because of a promise she made her grandpa, Thomas Bush. He used to always say: “Do what’s right and do what’s good. Be kind and help others. The world can always use one more kind person. And if you can take it one step further, please do it for people grandpa’s age.”
Her life was a living example of her favorite Bible verse, Ephesians 4:32 — “And be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving one another, just as God also forgave you in Christ.”
Lynn is survived by her brother and wife Tommy and Carolyn Lynn, sister and husband Mary and Vitali Abazade; sister-in-law, Juanita Cooper; her three sons and their wives Allen and Theresa Beer, Jamie and Heather Beer, and Randy Beer; grandchildren, Faith Henry, Sara Gurley, Colton Beer, Cody Beer, Derek Sharp, and Jeremy Sharp; plus 3 great grandchildren and her many nephews and nieces. All of these she loved and touched deeply.
