CUYAHOGA FALLS – Shirlee Lynner, a long-time resident of Cuyahoga Falls, passed away surrounded by her family on September 25, 2016 at the age of 86.

She was preceded in death by her parents (Anthony and Gladys Johnson), husband (Robert Lynner), daughter (Roblyn "Pixie" Ruggles), and other loved ones including Richard Jackson and Quirky Red Hatters. She is survived by sons Robert (Lydia) Lynner, Brian (Stacey) Lynner, and son-in law John Ruggles, as well as her many grandchildren, Sarah (Doug), Joshua, Morgan, Adam, Victoria, Isabella, Brittany, Austin and Jenna and great-grandchildren Kyle, Jacx, Emme, Jenna, Brady and Drew.

Family and friends remember her as a strong, generous woman who never leaves the house without lipstick, calls herself an octogenarian, orders iced tea with lots of ice and one piece of lemon, and whose favorite color is glitter. Shirlee was the matriarch of the family, inspiring all those she touched to lead a life in which positivity, passion, pride in workmanship, empathy, and taking the high road were required. She has left a legacy that loved ones will strive to honor, for she is one of the most wonderful women anyone could have ever known.
