In Memory

Lynne Sullivan (Kelly)


KELLY, LYNNE ELLEN January 2, 1962 to March 23, 2011 Lynne Kelly was born in Kansas City, MO in 1962, and passed away on March 23rd from a lifelong battle with lung disease. She grew up in Tulsa, OK with her brother David and parents Richard and Millicent Sullivan. She earned a degree in Communications from Drury College, and held a career in the advertising industry for many years.

During college Lynne joined the sorority Kappa Delta and made many friends that she kept in touch with. Lynne had a positive impact on every person she interacted with. She was such a loving and happy woman, and anyone would have been lucky to meet her.

She met her husband Brian in 1992. The two of them traveled all over the world and shared many special moments together. Her favorite vacation spot was Hawaii. She was very close to her two daughters and the bond that they shared will always remain strong. She was a proud mother and wife and her personality thrived around her family and friends. Lynne, beloved by all, is survived by her husband, Brian Kelly, two daughters, Emily and Whitney Lemasters, mother, Millicent Sullivan and brother, David Sullivan. Lynne will be missed terribly, but will always be remembered for her courageous spirit and loving personality. She will continue to influence those she left behind.

A memorial service to celebrate her life will be held Saturday, April 2nd, 2011 at 2:00 p.m. at the La Jolla Beach and Tennis Club, 2000 Spindrift Drive, La Jolla, CA 92037. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Gifts, C/O Lifesharing, 3465 Camino del Rio South, Ste. 410, San Diego, CA 92108.

I will always remember Lynne's smile and happy personality.  So sorry she was taken from us so early.

Our prayers are with her family.

“Truly great friends are hard to find, difficult to leave, and impossible to forget.”
Lynne was one of the funniest people I have ever met.  It came so naturally to her.  She had a fab smile and the kindest of manners.  I have so many memories of her--making fun of the socialites at Southern Hills, having to ring her doorbell and not doing the Edison honk, making silly names for the gang, eating mexican food, swimming in her pool, drinking at drury before the party started, holding her babies, laughing on the phone.  None of these things are remarkable but with Lynne they always were. 
A friend I will miss but never forget.

I remember Lynne most from Mrs. Williams' Eighth-grade Math.

Lynne,same as me,also took the same bus route, I recall from that time. ...

She had those striking blue eyes; I recall when she started wearing
contact lenses, and what a difference that made for her. ... My condolences to her family.. ... Marty Randall. TULSA.OK.
