The Lynn Timmel Fund
In May Of 2018 I Lost my Aunt Lynn (53) to a lifelong battle with depression. Lynn Nannette Timmel was born October 13, 1964 to Frederick Timmel and Shirley (Fitchett) Pierce. She was first and foremost a loving mother to her daughter. Her greatest passions were art and music and she was an active choir member at Holy Spirit. She was selfless with her time, love, and support and will forever be missed.
She is predeceased by her mother and brother, Frederick Timmel, Jr. Besides her daughter and father, she is survived by sisters, Jacqueline (Lloyd) Stone, Joni (Bob) Stahl, and Lori (Gary) Cunningham, and numerous nieces, nephews, and friends. Anyone that new her or anyone that encountered her could never forget her infectious laugh as it was one of a kind and could brighten up even the darkest of days.
Because of the impact this had on me along with my own struggles with depression and past losses of friends and other loved ones I decided to start The Lynn Timmel Fund which will annually donate to The American Foundation For Suicide Prevention which works to understand and prevent suicide by supporting research looking at the causes of suicide, helping those who have suicidal thoughts or those who have lost someone to suicide, and working with federal and state government on policies to prevent suicide and care for those at risk.
