Lynn Myers

July 12, 1978 ‒ January 25, 2016

Lexington, Ohio

Lynn Myers, age 37, of Lexington died unexpectedly Monday, January 25, 2016 at her home.

She was born on July 12, 1978 in Park Ridge, Illinois the daughter of Donald DeWitt of Elk Grove, Illinois and Mary Ann (Cwanek) of Park Ridge, Illinois.

Lynn worked as a lunch lady for Lexington Schools for 6 years.

Lynn and John have been together for 16 years and were married in June of 2012.  Nothing meant more to Lynn than John and their daughter, Jenna.  She was content with the life she and John had carved out for themselves.

She loved her Bengals and wore her orange and black proudly.  The three of them were even able to go watch them play the Kansas City Chief’s at Paul Brown Stadium early in the season….a 36-21 victory. WHO DEY!

Lynn’s idea of camping was taking John’s very nice camper to his mom’s house where he and Jenna would stay in the camper and Lynn would sleep in the house.  John recalled taking her for a ride on the back of his four wheeler and accidentally dumping her off in the creek.  Keep in mind, Lynn hated the thought of parasites and germs and John seriously thought she might kill him as she walked back to the house contaminated with the creek water.

Lynn will be remembered as a very tough woman, one who was unafraid to speak her mind.  She was extremely structured and organized in both her personal and professional life…she wanted things done a certain way.

In addition to John Raymond and Jenna she will be missed by her parents; her brothers Scott and Eric (Colleen) Dewitt both of Park Ridge; Mother-in-law Dia (Bruce) Fitzpatrick; brothers-in-law Jimmy (Diane) and Stephen Eugene (Barb); grandparents; and many nieces, nephews, aunts, and uncles.

Friends may call on the family on Friday, January 29, 2016 from 5-7:30 p.m. at the DeVore-Snyder Funeral Home, 637 North State Route 61, Sunbury, Ohio 43074.  Funeral services will start there at 7:30 p.m. with Jenna’s Youth Pastor, Kelsey Jones officiating.  A compassionate cremation will follow; she will be given to John and Jenna and returned to the home she loved so much.

The DeVore-Snyder Funeral Home is honored to serve the family of Lynn.  Special memories and condolences may be shared with them at

  • John and Jenna, Lynn was such a great person, hard worker and most of all, a close friend. The time I had working with her in the kitchen and being friends I will always treasure. All of the phone calls, texting each other, our discussions of the Real House Wives shows and other shows, her great sense of humor and our Wednesdays after work will be missed. But most of all, Lynn will truly be missed. My deepest sympathy for your loss. God Bless you both and your family.

  • Dear John and Jenna,
    Our memories of trick or treating and searching for kittens and a momma cat at Clear Fork Reservoir will be cherished. Lynn’s caring ways and infectious smile will be missed and remembered. We are so sorry for your loss.

  • To the Dewitt family and especially John and Jenna. Lynn was a special friend. Very quiet with a big voice, for sure. I met Lynn in Jr High and had the privilege of knowing her through HS. We told people we were cousins. We had so many great times together. Hearing of her loss was devastating. She was kind, funny, caring and reading all the words above is exactly the Lynn I remember so well. She will be so missed by us all. My heart goes out to you and yours. God bless.
