Sept. 25, 1949 — Dec. 6, 2007
Lyn Marie (Jensen) Chuinard, 58, of Corvallis died Thursday at Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center.
Lyn was born to Mervin "Bud" and Palma Jensen in Longview, Wash. She grew up on her parents' small farm in Castle Rock, Wash. She graduated valedictorian of her high school class in 1967 and attended Whitman, Western Washington State and Lower Columbia colleges.
She was an operations officer for about 15 years at the Bank of Cowlitz County, which merged several times, finally becoming a part of the U.S. Bank system.
She married Patrick on Oct. 21, 1972, and they lived in Castle Rock, Seattle and Tacoma, Wash. They also lived in Fort Wayne, Ind.; Lakota, N.D.; and Glasgow, Mont., before moving to Corvallis in 1988.
She considered her occupation to be that of a homemaker and blessed her family. Additionally, she found much satisfaction in her part-time work of lawn and yard maintenance and housework. By combining her talents of listening and compassion with her work-hard-and-always-do-your-best attitude, she made many wonderful friendships with her customers.
She enjoyed and was accomplished in music, serving from age 12 on through her life as a church organist. She cherished and valued being a mother to her son, Andy, and daughter Emily and in supporting them in their growth of Christian faith, academics, music, sports and servant hood to others. She also found pleasure in gardening, tent camping with her family, day trips to the coast and walking the family dog around Cloverland Park. She was a faithful Christian who chose to live simply so others might simply live.
Lyn is survived by her husband, son and daughter of Corvallis; her mother of Castle Rock; and sister Leah Norris of Sterling, Va.
She was preceded in death by her father.
A funeral will be Wednesday at Westside Community Church, 4000 S.W. Western Blvd., in Corvallis. Chaplain Todd Pynch of Crisis Chaplaincy Services will officiate. Burial will be Wednesday in Whittle-Hubbard Cemetery in Castle Rock.
While she loved flowers, her request is that in lieu of them any donations be made to the Salvation Army, Gideons International or Crisis Chaplaincy Services.
AAsum-Dufour Funeral Home is handling the arrangements (www.aasum-dufour.com).
