Lynn Ann Higgins (Larimer) 55, of Vaughn, WA. passed into God's Kingdom on the afternoon of December 22nd, 2014 at St. Anthony’s Hospital in Gig Harbor.
She was born on September 27th 1959 in Seattle, WA. to Constance and (Ralph) Lynn Larimer.
Lynn Ann is survived by her husband of 22 years, Brett Higgins. Sons, Brandon and Christopher Engbretson, 2 grandsons, Gavin and Grant Engbretson. Also surviving sister Pam Mearns , brother Don Larimer as well as many nieces, nephews and cousins.
Lynn Ann lived in the greater Puget Sound area her whole life. She graduated from Mountlake Terrace High School in 1977 and went on to work in the jewelry business. She took some years off to be a mom to her 2 sons before returning to work in the jewelry business in 1990. In 1995 she and her husband moved to the Key Peninsula were they fell in love with the area and especially the people they met.
Lynn Ann was the proudest mother and grandmother as well as a “second mom” to many of her co-workers and young people she met along her journey through life. She had the brightest smile, gave the biggest hugs and would always be there for people who needed someone to talk to.
Besides her love of family and friends, Lynn Ann loved her visits to Disneyland, her local sports teams, Mariners, Seahawks and the Sonics (when they were in Seattle).
She had a special place in her heart for her pets and just about any animal…plus her Teddy Bears.
A Celebration of Life will be held at the Key Peninsula Civic Center from 1 - 3PM on February 14th 2015.
