Lynn enjoyed working and developed life-long friends as a result. When she went back to the work force, Lynn worked at Dan’s bakery. She loved her job and spending time with a group of friends who she cared about very much. She then worked at Casey’s. She was a valued employee and someone other employees could rely on for no matter the task. Lynn enjoyed having coffee with her friends, walking around town, and taking trips to Sioux Falls to visit her daughter. She also spent time baking treats, especially around the holidays, to give away to friends and family. Lynn also enjoyed reading and doing crafts like cross-stitch.
