Lynne Joanne Flanigan

Lynne Joanne (Gullickson) Flanigan was born July 31, 1958, to Arden and Donna (Jacobson) Gullickson in Lanesboro, Minnesota. She was relieved of her earthly duties on August 2, 2012, taken home to be with Jesus.

She was the youngest of five girls. She exuded a sense of strength through her grace, courage, vivacity and most of all, her love.

After graduating from Lanesboro High she received a degree from Southeast Technical in retail sales. As she began her career she met many lifelong friends. She was the smiling face behind the counter at Pamida, Thrifty White and Fleet Farm. She was a lady who would listen to you and laugh with you, because she truly enjoyed her job and the people that came with it.

Her first marriage was to Terry Block with whom she had three children: Mitchell, Tiffany and Jordan, for which she had undying love that will live on through them.

Her second marriage was to John Bublitz when she came to find her love for the ridge and its open sky.

Her last love was Pat Flanigan. Though their time was short it was the type of love she had truly deserved. Their connection so strong and devotion so true that it took her to her final day.

Lynne enjoyed life. She was a decorator, at times the life of the party, and a great role model. She enjoyed her occasional motorcycle rides with Pat as well as her trip to the Florida Keys with him. She also had the sisters whose bond would not be broken.

Those left to cherish her memory include her husband, Pat Flanigan of Witoka, Minnesota; children: Mitchell (Necole Schueler) Block of Goodview, Minnesota; Tiffany (Tony Ott) Block of Winona, Minnesota; and Jordan (Dana) Block of Minnesota City, Minnesota; grandchildren: Bailee, Cole, Riley, Alba and soon to be born baby girl; mother, Donna Gullickson; step-children: Emma Flanigan of Winona, Minnesota; and John Flanigan of Wabasha, Minnesota; sisters: Valerie (Dave) Grewe of Cochrane, Wisconsin; Carol (Tom) Dybing of Lanesboro, Minnesota; Diane (Jim) Wehrs of Tigard, Oregon; and June (Dave) Heins of Kellogg, Minnesota; several nieces and nephews; other extended family and many friends.

Lynne was preceded in death by her father; and grandparents.

Funeral service was Monday, August 6, 2012, at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Nodine with Reverend Jim Nelson presiding. Burial was in the Witoka Cemetery in Witoka.
