April 03, 1982 ‒ April 10, 2019

Columbus, Ohio

Lynne Marie (Reece) Votaw, age 37, passed away on Wednesday April 10 2019 unexpectedly, at her Columbus home. She was born on April 3rd 1982 in Columbus, Ohio.

She was preceded in death by (Father) Larry E. Reece, (Uncle) Jeff Reece and Grandparents Steven L. Bradley, Ronald and Carol Reece. Survived by (mother) Deborah L. Reece, brother Eric A. Reece (Robin) and Tara L. Brannen. (Jesse).  Her children left behind are Amryn, Skylar and Tristen.  Also survived by former husbands William Shattuck and Jason R. Votaw.  Also survived by numerous Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles, Nieces, Nephews and many friends.

She was a graduate of Westerville North High School in 2000. She enjoyed soccer, fishing, and crafting. She worked for PL Marketing for a few years and had her own business, “Something Always Vibrant” in honor of her daughters. Lynne was a very outgoing woman. She had a heart of gold and she showed it by wearing her heart on her sleeves. She always put others first and loved her kids more than life itself!  She was able to make friends easily. She was loved by many and was an amazing mother, wife, sister, daughter niece and friend.

Some of her favorite quotes that she lived her life by was from Matthew 7:1-2 NIV “Do not judge, for you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the same measures you use, it will be measured to you!” “Never give up hope and always fight for what you believe in!”

Starting at 3:00pm on Saturday, April 20, 2019, at the Snyder Rodman Funeral Center, 101 Valleyside Drive, Delaware, there will be a brief eulogy reading from Pastor Gregg Parkman. After him I will speak briefly. Then it will be open to others for a few minutes to say what they wish if need be. We (her mother and I) decided what was best for her life and decided on cremation and her urn will be on display to honor her. Prior to the service, friends may call from 1:00 pm until the start of the service at 3:00pm.

During the visitation, we will have snacks in the community room area at the same time so ones can relax and talk about the good times and memories and also celebrate Lynne Marie Votaw and her life.

Please come and show your respect and love for Lynne’s family as we celebrate her new life in heaven!  Thank you!
