January 8, 1954 - January 23, 2021
Lynn Marie Landon was born on January 8th, 1954 in Syracuse, NY and passed away on January 23rd, 2021 at The Grand in Utica, NY surrounded by so many who loved her dearly. She lived a full 67 years, learning so much that she blew everyone away and never complained about the many challenges she faced in her life journey. Lynn went to Our Lady of Lourdes School, Van Dyne for a few years, then Powelson and on to Corcoran High School to graduate. She went later to the College for Living and blossomed with the guidance of a recreation therapist who continued through her entire life to be a very supportive, loving friend. John and Dolores Amrose, her parents now deceased, plus Howard and Jean Amrose, Mini and Gus Amrose and Rick Jackman, all deceased, loved and enjoyed Lynn more than can be expressed. Along with great love and guidance from Gloria and Bill Delaney, her aunt and uncle from Fayetteville, there were so many others, staff who also became lifelong friends and cousins that she touched. Her way so often opened hearts to laughter, caring and compassion. Lynn lived in her own apartment and married Phil Landon (now deceased) sharing 11 good years together. She met him through one of those lifelong friends who also stayed in touch with social activities that she organized and generously managed. Lynn and Phil liked to go camping, have picnics with friends, visit with the Syracuse family members, and make a feast on Thanksgiving. Lynn would write a nice note in the many birthday and holiday cards that she sent to everyone. One of her unique gifts was an impeccable memory when it came to remembering birthdays! Lynn shared the Avon business with her mother Dolores and helped with the antique business too, that later became a family focus. She enjoyed being a part of the family shoe business, Botinka's as a young woman but preferred swimming at Green Lakes or indulging her love of anything SU basketball or football! The present was so important to her, living with special needs, that it shifted things in the minds, hearts, and behaviors of all who met her. Lynn never seemed to be fearful and certainly could be moody at times. She was forgiving and warm hearted and very funny. And often she confused us all! Her sisters Jane Jackman, Nancy Amrose and Ginny Amrose, Larry and all the family miss her already. Her 2nd family at the Grand where she spent many years of her later life the family thanks. Their abundance of love and talented caring was spread out to all who came to be with her while taking the time to make everyone feel at home. We are so grateful for their dedication and kindness! A funeral service in celebration of Lynn’s life will be held at a later date. Funeral arrangements entrusted to THOMAS J. PIRRO JR. FUNERAL HOME. Donations may be made ARC of Onondaga, 600 South Wilbur Avenue, Syracuse, NY 13204.
