July 11, 1916 - May 09, 2009
Jane Shideler Lynn peacefully fell asleep in the Lord on Saturday, May 9,
after nearly 93 years of truly living life! Born July 11, 1916 in Indianapolis, Jane leaves her beloved husband, John S. Lynn,
She raised 3 children who love the Lord: John A. Lynn (Elizabeth), Charles J. Lynn II [deceased] (Cheri) and Judi Lynn Klug. She also leaves five grandchildren: Dr. Christine Lynn Norton (Billy), Corban Klug (Marcy), Abigail Lynn, Andrew Klug (Brie) and Charles J. Lynn III; and three great-grandchildren (Mahalia and Will Norton, and Samuel Klug).
A Phi Beta Kappa member at Depauw University, she met John, the love of her life in the Fall of 1937 and they would have celebrated 69 years of marriage on June 8, 2009.
Raised Episcopalian and "retread" into Second Presbyterian Church, Jane loved to read her Bible for hours each day. For her last 50 years, she and John faithfully shared the Word of God at scores of Christian gatherings, and her practical wisdom and joyful personality touched hearts far and wide.
Jane was a cheerful giver, who selflessly cared for her family for almost three quarters of a century, along with countless others the Lord brought to her. Always confessing what the Word of God says, she was a bright light of Christ's love, unwavering joy, relentless faith in both the goodness of her God and the faithfulness of her Precious Savior, Jesus Christ.
We will carry with us her legacy of what Christ-like love looks like. Her next thought will be face-to-face with Christ her Savior. And we will see her again when the trumpet of the Lord sounds and Time is no more!
Instead of sending flowers, please help spread the love of God which Mom lived by making a donation in her name to her local church: Hope International Ministries, Pastor Jeanne Huiett, 1205 E. New York St., Indianapolis, IN, 46202, 317-955-0358; or MJIF, Messianic Jewish Israeli Fund, Dotti Solomon, 950 Pine Grove Road, Roswell, GA 30075, 770-641-3000.
