Lynn was born August 14, 1952 in Long Prairie, MN to Charles M. and Arlyne M. (Malmgren) Ringeisen. She was a happy child and life long fan of the Vikings, Twins and Minnesota Gophers. In 1964, the family moved to St. Cloud. She began going to WACOSA. Lynn LOVED being involved with the WACOSA program! At the time of her death, she was their most senior client.

Lynn has been in the care of REM Central Lakes for many years. Although Lynn had many health problems and a life expectancy of 20-30 years, her love of life, family, the care of REM staff and personal toughness brought her to the age of 64.

Lynn is survived by sister, Gayle (Gene) Wagner of Indianapolis, IN; brother Steve (Judy) Ringeisen of St. Cloud, MN; sister-in-law Gina Ringeisen of Redwood Falls, MN; and many nieces and nephews.

She is preceded in death by her parents, infant sister Lynnais and brother Mike.

In lieu of flowers, memorials are preferred to WACOSA or the donor’s favorite charity in memory of Lynn.

The family wishes to thank the staffs of REM Central Lakes on 33rd Ave., REM Bridgeport in Sartell, REM Fernwood in St. Cloud and the St. Cloud Hospital and Hospice for their compassionate care.
