Lynn Stanard Lund was born June 21, 1942 in Great Falls,
Montana and died peacefully in her Alpine, Utah home surrounded
by her loving family on June 10, 2014. Lynn was born to
Earl and Cora Klingler Stanard, the second of three children,
and graduated from Great Falls High School in 1960. In 1963,
she graduated from Brigham Young University with high honors
in Elementary Education and taught 1st grade for one year
after her graduation. She married Gerald N. Lund, her best
friend and the love of her life, on June 5th, 1963 in the
Idaho Falls Temple. Jerry and Lynn devoted their lives to
their family which now consists of 7 children, 29 grandchildren,
9 1/2 great-grandchildren, and 11 who have joined their
family through marriage, giving them a total posterity of
56 and counting!
Lynn loved nothing more than gathering her family close
to her, feeding them their favorite foods (her cooking!),
and taking innumerable pictures of her "darling"
grandchildren whom she loved to dress in matching outfits.
She was a gifted musician and well-known as Lynn S. Lund,
a bestselling LDS composer who wrote and arranged over 300
pieces of published music that have been sung and played
around the world (see lynnlund.com).
Her dedication to family and music were rooted in her deep
and abiding faith in the Lord. She enjoyed countless hours
of service in the ward and stake Young Women’s and
Relief Society organizations. Lynn felt a deep connection
to her ancestors and spent many hours researching their
lives, stories and histories. She passed the legacy of family
history onto her children who continue her work. Lynn also
faithfully served many years beside her husband in his callings
including their service in the Area Presidency of the Europe
West Area from 2003-2006.
Lynn was preceded in death by her parents, Earl and Cora
Stanard, her son, Jerry Scott Lund, and her great-granddaughter,
Adria Cora Pease. She is survived by her husband; 6 children
and their families: the Dobsons (Cyndie, Derek and 7 children),
the Stoddards (Julie, Theron and 7 children), the Lunds
(Steve, Annette and 4 children), the Lunds (Lori, Cid and
2 children), the Bellistons (Rebecca, Troy and 5 children),
and the Lunds (Matt, Ali and 4 children); her grandchildren
and great-grand children; and her siblings, Carole Lee Stanard
Abercrombie and James Earl Stanard. She will be dearly missed.
