Lynn D. (Wright) Allen

March 20, 1943 ~ May 17, 2022 (age 79) 79 Years Old


Our mom, Lynn Allen,79, passed away peacefully May 17, 2022. She was born on March 20, 1943 to Arthur & Etta (Andy) Wright in Ketchikan, Alaska.

Lynn graduated from Ketchikan High School in 1961. She attended the Cornish Arts School in Seattle before getting married to Dean Allen on August 17, 1963 in Ketchikan. They later moved to Cambridge, Minnesota where they raised their family.

Lynn was very active in the community of Cambridge. She worked as a bailiff for Isanti County, she helped establish MOMs Co-op, but what she loved most was being a homemaker and making the world a more beautiful place. She loved to decorate, whether it be a table at church, for a friend in the hospital, or hang greens from the store fronts in downtown Cambridge at Christmas time. She was always finding ways to make the ordinary, beautiful.

Lynn was preceded in death by her husband Dean, her parents Arthur & Etta (Andy) Wright, and her brother Don Wright.

She is survived by brother Steve Wright, daughter Carrie (Mike Meyer), son Bryan (Katie), and her two grandchildren Benjamin and Mollie.

There will be an ice cream social on June 27th, 2022 from 2-5:00 pm at 328 Sunset Lane North in Cambridge.

She was magic.
