On Saturday Night the Kim Lynn Memorial Fund held a night of dining and dancing at the the Bogota VFW Post 5561. Proceeds from this event go to the Lynn Irrevocable Trust, which was set-up to help take care of her three daughters. In August of 2012 Ms. Lynn was killed in an auto accident, which also seriously injured her oldest daughter, while causing minor injuries to her two younger twin girls. The three girls now living with their father Bob Lynn have "physically" recovered from their injuries in the words of Mr. Lynn.
The girls dance, and play, with family and friends who came out to help support this event while other gathered to be with loved ones and to remember the life of Kim Lynn.
Ms. Lynn grew up in Boston Mass. she served 4 years in the U.S. Air Force obtaining the rank of 1st Lt.. She was station in San Antonio, and worked as a Pediatric Nurse for her Military career. After leaving the service she then worked as a Bayada nurse for 15 years as a clinical support specialist, along with being an educator, and mentor in the Bayada system. Before her death Ms. Lynn started work on a developing simulation program for home health care. Formerly married to Bob Lynn of Bogota, in October of 2012 Bayada dedicated a pediatric simulation lab they built based on her design in her honour.
