Kind, loyal, witty, supportive, and courageous are just scratching the surface in defining Lynne. Other people always came first, especially her family. She was inspirational as a first child, eldest sister, loving wife, proud mother, and favorite Aunt. Lynne was a role model.
She was preceded in death by her father-in-law, James Bedwell Jr.
She is survived by her husband, Jim Bedwell III; a son, Jim IV (Kristen Palm and children Ava and RJ); her parents, Richard and Norma, nee Travis, McAleenan; two brothers, Kevin McAleenan and Mike McAleenan; a sister, Kathleen McAleenan; her mother-in-law, Gloria Bedwell; two sisters-in-law, Karen Fitzgerald (Art Voellinger) and Julie (Dr. Jim) Gehrs; two brothers-in-law, Kirk Bedwell (fiance, Mia Wentley) and Tony (Vicki) Bedwell; and numerous nieces and nephews.
