Lynn Marie Cartwright

Resided in Gladstone, MI
Died September 11, 2020

Lynn Marie Cartwright, age 65, of Gladstone, passed away Friday, September 11, 2020 at her home with her family by her side.

Lynn was born August 14, 1955 in Escanaba, the daughter of John and Patricia (Young) Syverson. Lynn attended and graduated from Gladstone High School. Lynn was a fierce, devoted and loving mother. You could often find her with a phone to her ear talking to any one of her five children. Chatting about recipes, offering a kind ear or loving encouragement, imparting a wisdom that was concise and without prejudice, but mostly she was guiding us with her quiet strength and unyielding fortitude. Her memory, while never a replacement, will still provide us with all the same traits. Even in death, her quiet strength and gentle and kind heart will be a force not to be reckoned with as all that is good in us is because we were blessed to have her as our mother.

She also was a dedicated wife. She offered support that may have seemed imperceptible to many but offered strength when needed, love unconditionally, an ear of understanding and unparalleled patience.

She shared an unquestionable faith with her family and friends. She loved little children and worked in the nursery and taught Sunday school for many years.

Lynn passed on her love of classic movies and musicals to all her children. Some of her favorites included: Singin’ In the Rain, It’s A Wonderful Life, The Sound of Music and Calamity Jane.
She loved cooking and baking and her dishes were always family favorites. Anyone can follow a recipe, but she always added love and served them with her beautiful smile.

She had a great fondness for animals. She cared for many family dogs and cats through the years as well as chickens and ducks. The wildlife around the house loved her too. She fed the deer cracked corn and they would come out of the woods to greet her at night just by the sound of her voice.

The eternal mother, she will be missed by all creatures great and small.

In addition to her loving Husband Rick, Lynn is survived by:
4 Sons: Chad Cartwright of Green Bay, WI
Jaime (Brittony) Cartwright of Green Bay, WI
Jesse (Michael Combs) Cartwright of Nashville, TN
Christopher (Beth) Cartwright of Davenport, FL
1 Daughter: Anna Cartwright of Gladstone, MI
Brother: John (Kathy) Syverson of Gladstone, MI
2 Sisters: Lonnie (Bob) Moore of Neenah, WI
Susan (Dan) Winker of Green Bay, WI

13 grandchildren: Emma, Sophia, Jocelyn, Caleb, Jacob, Alice, Isaac, Isabella, Ava, Hayden, Peyton, Lily, and Brady.

She also was an amazing Aunt to many nieces and nephews.

Lynn was preceded in death by her Parents.

A memorial service is scheduled for Thursday, September 17, 2020 at 11:00 AM at New Life Church in Escanaba with Pastor Robert Derheim officiating. Lynn will be laid to rest in the Fernwood Cemetery. The Skradski Family Funeral Homes of Delta County are assisting the Cartwright family.

    To the Syverson and Cartwright families:
    I have great memories of Lynn, and her sisters and brother. Lynn and I were very good friends in high school but I did not know her during her adult married life, as I lived out of the area. She was soft-spoken and sweet, and had a wonderful laugh. We used to play ping-pong outdoors at her house. We both laughed so hard when a pigeon dropped some potty on me that we had to stop playing! She was very shy and it was exciting when she became a cheerleader because it was so not her, she was good at it!

    Dear family members , i went to school with Lynn an remember many wonderful memories of her shy gentle voice an sweetness of a good friend she will be sadly missed by all who new her. May the family find peace an comfort of all your memories my thoughts an prayers are with you all. Time heals our broken hearts.

    To one of the best suster in laws . i will miss you very much God is taking care of you now. I will miss you.

    Chris and Jerry Liedel

    My sincere condolences to Lynn’s family.
    I didn’t know Lynn well but from the few times we met I knew she was an extraordinary woman. She was lovely and her smile was genuine and beautiful. The thing I remember the most is that she always carried a gentle spirit with her – soft spoken, humble, sweet and kind to everyone. There was no doubt that her family meant the world to her and I know your hearts are broken. Her precious spirit remains in the hearts of everyone who was fortunate to know her. My prayer is that the cherished memories of Lynn will bring comfort and sustain you. God bless.

    Our deepest sympathy to you, Rick and family. From time to time, I would happen to see Lynn, Lonnie and their mom, Pat, at the mall. We’d chat like old friends. I remember Lynn from church too; a gentle and sweet lady. We are so sorry for your loss. Praying for God’s peace.
