Lynn was born on Feb. 16, 1959, in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, the daughter of Frank and Betty (Forrest) Pearcey. She grew up and graduated high school in Hamilton. Following high school, Lynn went to dental school in London, Ontario, to become a dental assistant. After graduating with her degree, she returned to Hamilton to work as a dental assistant. For many years, Lynn worked at one dental office for multiple dentists, but for the last five years of her career she worked for a couple of different dental offices in Hamilton. In 2011, Lynn moved to Marshalltown before moving to Carroll a little over seven years ago. On April 4, 2015, Lynn married Sheldon Kirsch in Carroll.
Lynn was someone who could start a conversation. She loved talking to people. Lynn was also a fan of social media, specifically Facebook. It was a way for her to keep in touch with friends and family from a distance, but also to share photos. Lynn enjoyed watching TV and listening to Andrea Bocelli sing. But most importantly, she loved her friends, her beloved cat Sammi, and her family. Especially her loving husband Sheldon, and her “little” brother Don.
Lynn is survived by her husband: Sheldon of Carroll; her brother: Don (Janice) Pearcey of Grimsby, Ontario; siblings-in-law: Curt Kirsch (fiancée Kim Hackett) of Carroll, Russell (Cindy) Kirsch of Glidden, Brad (Carol) Kirsch of Carroll, Amy (Tony) Niehaus of Platte City, Missouri, and Amber Kirsch (fiancé Jeff Babe) of Breda; several nieces and nephews; and many other wonderful family members and friends in the United States, Canada and Scotland.
She was preceded in death by her parents; and her father-in-law and mother-in-law: Jerome and Shirley Kirsch.
