Lynda (Lynn) Jeannette Case


September 26, 1939 – May 8, 2012
Lynn passed away from a year-long battle with cancer on May 8, 2012. She was the loving and devoted wife of Robert ‘Bob’ Case who preceded her in death on December 1, 1993.
Born in Picayune, Mississippi, Lynn was the daughter of Hazel (Formby) and Gordon Dailey of Moscow, Idaho. Her mother preceded her in death in 1999. As a small girl, her family moved to Nezperce, Idaho, where she graduated from Nezperce High School in 1957. While attending the University of Idaho, she met, and later married, Bob on June 5, 1960. They relocated to the Seattle area in 1962. She worked for the Federal Way School District for 8 years, and after completing her Master’s Degree, worked 18 years for PACCAR, in Human Resources. She also worked for INTERMEC and Mutual Materials before retiring.
Lynn was passionate about her family and friends. She was known for her humor, quick wit and tenacity. She took particular pride in crafting her annual Christmas letter, which will be missed.
Lynn leaves behind two daughters; Christyne Mayberry, son-in-law Jeff Knapp, grandson Bradley, and great-grandson Brayden of Bellevue Washington; and daughter, Kerryn Miller, son-in-law Geoffrey, and grandson Craighton of Kent, Washington. She is also survived by her father, Gordon Dailey of Moscow, Idaho; sister Barbara and husband Milan Anderson of Silverdale, Washington; and brother, Ret. Lt. Colonel, US Army Steven and wife Mary Dailey of Colorado Springs, Colorado; as well as many loving aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins.
In lieu of flowers, the family suggests remembrances to the Cancer Society or charity of your choice.

    What a touching orbituary. We aren’t able to attend the get together but all will be in our thoughts. I love the picture of your Mom & Dad. Take care.

    Love,

    Lynn was an amazing boss and I considered myself very lucky to have known her. We shared a similar sense of humor (at times wicked) and she tolerated many practical jokes! My thoughts and prayers go out to the family. She was truly a gem.
