It’s about time you all knew more about Lynn Marrer, who recently moved to Sagamore Hills after 20 years living just up the road from church. Lynn and her family visited Advent for the first time Good Friday 2000, and felt so welcomed (especially by greeter Doris Johanson) that they came again on Easter Sunday.
Eventually Lynn became very active especially with music (Adult Choir and bell choir, and some memory-making appearances at the Music Marathons); VBS (she loves kids); Parents’ Night Out; Hattie Larlham; and Altar Guild. Lynn makes THE best communion bread.
Lynn graduated from Normandy H.S. in Parma. In fact, her mom still lives in the same house Lynn grew up in with sister Lori and two brothers. Younger brother Robbie died 7 years ago from a brain tumor, and the older brother lives in Florida, but Lynn and Lori Olecki are still very close. (You may have met Lori – as both Lynn and Lori work hard for Hands, Hearts, and Homes, from helping with the annual golf outing, to picking up furniture, to organizing the summer auctions.)
After High School, Lynn worked downtown at the old National City Bank until her boss invited her to go with him to a new venture. She married Steve May 27, 1989, and became a busy mom to Alex, soon to be 30 and working as a diesel mechanic in Rootstown, and Brooke, now 26, and working for Oriana House, Akron, monitoring incarcerated clients living at home.
Steve is a lawyer with Kohrman, Jackson & Krantz, and his love is fine woodworking. Lynn’s love is baking desserts, which we all love too! And reading – lots of types. And walking in the Metroparks. Although she works at Lori’s family-owned HVAC company, when business is slow Lynn might walk twice a day.
