du Lac, passed away on Sunday, June 23, 2019, at Villa Loretto Nursing Home,

She was born on June 14,
1952, in Fond du Lac, the daughter of Robert “Bob” and Shirley Hansen. On January

If you were to ask, her
friends would describe Lynn, they’d say she was generous, grateful, went out of
the way for you, an amazing cook, a super volunteer, a mentor, and a friend to
many. During the 80’s and 90’s she was
very active for Wau-Bun Girl Scout Council.
She was a troop leader for the city.
At the council level, she was on the Program Committee, chairing many
large events. Her most memorable event
was the 75th Girl Scout Anniversary Celebration. In 1987 her husband joined the Elks Lodge 57. Over
the years she volunteered hundreds of hours, chaired events, created
décor for special dinners, cooked everyone’s favorite deserts and eventually
served as President of the Lady’s Auxiliary.
In 2012 she was awarded WI Elk Lady of the Year. She continued to stay very active in the WI
Association of Historical Preservation and in the late 90’s she was President
of the Fond du Lac Humane Society. When
not helping others, she enjoyed cheering on the Packers, gardening, canning for
her family and friends, catering events, and rosemaling, toll & decorative
painting with her high school friend, Linda.
She is survived by her
husband, Bill Weinshrott of Fond du Lac, her daughter Lisa (Michael) Weinshrott
Kimmel of Orlando, FL; her son, Kevin (Alicia) Weinshrott of New Lisbon; her
brother Greg Hansen and his partner Cynthia Loeber of Milwaukee, two grandchildren: Maddy and Joey Weinshrott,

She is preceded in death by
