Lynn was born on Nov. 19, 1946, in Loraine to parents Clarence Audavee and Gwendell Mildred Yarbrough Claxton. She enjoyed fishing and camping. She loved British comedies and old western classics, almost as much as she loved a big glass of iced tea. Lynn had a sweet, loving nature and enjoyed spending time with her family, especially her grandson, Kallen.
Lynn is survived by her three children, Todd Moody of Sweetwater, DeAnna Thomas and husband Christopher of Sweetwater and Jody Moody and wife Ashton of Longworth; two grandchildren, Arianna Valdez and Kallen Moody; two sisters, Sandy Piercy and husband Tim of Sweetwater and Elaine Kelly and husband Tom of Cameron; and numerous aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins.
She was preceded in death by her parents; and her brother, Ronald Wayne Claxton.
Pallbearers for the service will be Cris Winn, Charles Thomas, Calvin Thomas, Eric Craver, Cody Claxton and Casey Terry.
