Life Story / Obituary


Age 73, died on August 31, 2020 in Kalamazoo. Lynn was born March 15, 1947 in Bridgeport, Connecticut. At home, her garden was always well manicured. She loved crafting, creating jewelry or knitting endlessly into the evening. Lynn was never one to have her photo taken, but on the rare occasion she’d make a goofy face in hopes that nobody would share the photo. She found great joy in the great outdoors, often camping around St. Ignace, Michigan where she enjoyed the beautiful view of the Mackinac Bridge and the bold colors of the autumn leaves.

Lynn was preceded in death by her mom, Doris; her brother, Kevin Landmesser; and 2 adopted children: Julie and Donnie. Surviving are her daughter, Laura Ferara; 2 adopted children: Virginia (Bud) Buell and Ron Suarez; siblings: Jim (Kathy) Weiss and Debra (Dean) Ramsdell, and her former husband, Allan Tyler.

Cremation has taken place. Private family services will be held. Please visit Lynn’s personal web page at www.BetzlerLifeStory.com where you may archive a favorite memory or photo and sign her online guestbook. Memorial donations may be made to SPCA of Southwest Michigan. Arrangements by Betzler Life Story Funeral Home, 6080 Stadium Drive, Kalamazoo (269) 375-2900.
