Lynn A. Kissel

October 22, 1942 — October 25, 2022

Lynn A. Kissel

Loving companion to James Zych.
Beloved daughter of Floyd and Margaret Smith.
Devoted mother to the late Jennifer Lynn Kissel and Carla Louise Kozak.
Cherished grandmother to many grandchildren.
Dear sister of Kenneth Smith.
Fond aunt to Laura, Megan, Mandy and Tricia.

Beloved family members, loved ones, friends - all benefited from being a part of Lynn's life.
Her joyfulness, her kindness, her patience, and determination along with her keen sense of wisdom on when and how to use each, was remarkable.
Lynn always wanted to help others, and she did. 

She loved her lengthy professional career with Sidley & Austin and often spoke of her esteem for the many people she worked for, and with.
Lynn carried those friendships as she remained very close to many of her colleagues to this day. 
She also loved her retirement years, which enabled her to travel and vacation to many parts of the world with friends and family.
She learned to scuba dive in the Caribbean, she fished in Canada, hiked the hills of Ireland, and strolled the beaches of Hawaii.
She both loved and was skilled in photography and painting as she captured beautiful memories from so many of the destinations she visited.  
Lynn loved her Family. She was the force, the rock, the glue. She was our Matriarch.  

Rest now our beloved Mother, Sister, Aunt, Loving Companion, Grandmother and Friend.
We will carry your lessons and your love with us, always.
May God Bless you.
