"Threads of Love" Donor Memorial Quilt: Quilt 19

Lynne M. Arndt

I'm going to tell you a little about my sister Lynne. She was a mother of two children, a boy and a girl, Joleene and Jared. She was a good wife to her husband, Lee. They were married 28 years. The two of them were great together, and made a terrific family of four.

Lynne was an organ donor. Which today I understand, for myself, is an important box to check off on your drivers license. Lynne was a very giving person and would help out anyone she could. Even through her death she has helped two people see again through the gift of her corneas.

The quilt square represents Lynne quite well. The purple was her favorite color, the heart represents the love she had for her family and friends, the sun, moon, and star, as well as the angel was how she decorated her home, the yellow border is for her birthday in Nov., last is the one that looks like a sunset, she enjoyed her sunsets. Her last sunset was seen with her dad just six days of her passing.

Lynne was the best big Sister, all around good mom, wife, daughter, aunt, sister in law, friend, and a nana to her only grandchild, Anthony. She baked the best apple pie around, which she made for our family holiday get togethers. At age 50 my sister became one of Gods angels Sept 1st 2008. We all miss her laughter, smiles, and the fun times. Until we meet again dear sister, know we're always thinking of you.
