Shirley J. Lynn, age 88 of Sheridan, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, May 7, 2019 at the Laurels of Carson City.

Known as “Ma” or “Grandma Shirley” to most everyone, Shirley was a person who just made you smile. As a longtime bartender at Jim’s Bar and The Hogs Head Saloon, she made friends with many people throughout the years and those friendships meant a lot to her. Probably Shirley’s biggest pride and joy in life was her family. For years, Shirley was a mainstay at the local race tracks where she could be found each and every weekend cheering for her kids and grandkids as they raced. She loved NASCAR, the Detroit Tigers, and in her younger days she also was an avid bowler and won several trophies hill climbing on her motorcycle. Shirley will be deeply missed by everyone who knew and loved her, but she will never be forgotten.

Shirley’s family would like to give a big thank you to all the wonderful staff at the Laurels for the tender and loving care they provided to her.

Surviving Shirley is her son, Bob Lynn of Sheridan; grandchildren, Shirley (Will) Manner of Brooks, Kentucky; Bobby (Jessica) Lynn of Sheridan; Neca Lynn of Sheridan; Jason Lynn of Sheridan; Jill (Jason) Dickinson of Stanton; great grandchildren, Chris (Britt) Swan; Aaron Swan; Shawn (Rebecca) Soule; Alyssa Lynn; Abigail Lynn; Caila Coleman; Jenna Lynn; Jordan Lynn; Sam Manner; Mavrick Dickinson and Miken Dickinson; great great grandchildren, Onyx; Jaxson and Gage; many nieces, nephews and cousins as well as long time family friend, Steven Hansen of Crystal.

Shirley was preceded in death by her parents, William & Nellie (Staines) Soule; husband, Robert Lynn; son, Bill Lynn; five sisters, and her father-in-law and mother-in-law, Orson & Claudia Lynn.

A celebration of Shirley’s life is being held on Tuesday, May 14, 2019 from 11 AM – 1 PM at the Simpson Family Funeral Home in Sheridan (246 S. Main Street) where you can come and go as your schedule allows. At 12:30 PM there will be a time for friends and family to share memories and stories with everyone. A memorial luncheon for Shirley will begin at 1 PM at the Sheridan VFW Post (209 Washington Street).

My Thoughts and Prayers for the family of Shirley, my job isnt the same without seeing her big beautiful brown eyes light up with a smile every evening when I come into work. I am so happy to have met this remarkable woman. And she will be missed. I remember her telling me about her family and her grandsons racing she was so proud of that. I would go in her room and take a break and watch the race with her. We would talk and laugh. I just loved and adored her. Just thought I would share this with everyone.
Fly high above the heavens beautiful Angel.
