MaeLynn was an amazingly sweet person who brought joy to whomever she met. She loved painting, being outdoors, and socializing. She will be remembered as a happy, fun-loving, kind, beautiful woman who loved life. She served faithfully in multiple callings in the LDS Church and had a firm and abiding testimony. Her children were her joy and happiness and she was an excellent mother.

  1. I am deeply touched by this tribute to MaeLynn and her beautiful family. I saw her grow from a charming, happy child to a lovely accomplished woman, wife and mother. I admire her courage and endurance.
