Lynn Mary Waligora was born July 16, 1957, in Burlington, Iowa, daughter of Edwin and Sue (Samuelson) Waligora. Lynn graduated from Pleasant Valley High School in 1975.
She worked as a bank teller for many years but was currently working in retail sales. Lynn easily built work friendships along her way; she cherished each of those special connections.
Lynn found such joy in making others feel special. She searched year-round to find perfect gifts for each person to give on birthdays or Christmas. Her children hold those memories close to their hearts and thank her for always making those events as special as she could.
Lynn lived a simple life. She enjoyed live concerts, 4th of July events, her grandchildren’s sporting events, watching Iowa Hawkeye football games, playing board games with her family, watching hummingbirds drink from feeders she had on her deck, shopping and sharing meals.
Lynn is survived by her daughters, Emily Torre, Sara Ewen, and Anne Ewen, all of Bettendorf; her son, Thomas Uphoff of Iowa City; her parents, Edwin and Sue Waligora; her grandchildren, Valentino Torre, Ellese Davidson, Roman Johnson, Jacob Jensen, and Cassidy Ewen-Jones; and her sister, Karen Waligora-Darrow of Bettendorf. She was preceded in death by her sister, Beth Waligora-Urmy.
