Lynn Diane (Swapinski) Jurek, 58, of Duluth, peacefully embarked on a new phase of her journey after living with Multiple Sclerosis for 30 years on March 22, 2010 at Chris Jensen Nursing Home with her loving family by her side.
Lynn was born to Edward and Patricia (Lambert) Swapinski on Sept. 12, 1951.
She attended Duluth Public schools and graduated from Central High School in 1969. As a youth, she belonged to Job's Daughters of Glen Avon and the Kenwood Lutheran Church. Lynn worked and modeled for Maurices and coordinated fashion shows. In 1973 she graduated from the College of St. Scholastica, with a major in Home Economics and minor in Mathematics. She was also part of the Beta Sigma Phi Sorority, XI NU Chapter. After college, she was married and raised her family of three children outside of Proctor, Minn.
Lynn's creativity and artistic skills blossomed in the kitchen and at the sewing machine. She worked for the Duluth Public Schools as a substitute teacher, Litton Microwaves as a cooking demonstrator, and the Minnesota Egg Council where she did radio shows and cooking demonstrations throughout northern and central Minnesota. She was an active member of St. Rose Catholic Church in Proctor, Minn., as a part of the choir, lector, and multiple church groups.
Lynn was a resident of Chris Jensen Rehabilitation Center since 1995. She liked playing Bingo, playing cards, watching movies (favorite actress Julia Roberts), listening to music (a big fan of Celine Dion), and playing with her grandchildren. Lynn loved to spend time with her family members, special friends, and the Chris Jensen community.
Lynn is survived by her three children, Scott, Angela (Darren) Kramer, and Greg; her parents, Edward and Patricia; sister Ann (Mike) Sultany, brothers, Dale and Randy; her three grandchildren, Abby, Kelsey, and Lindsey; nieces and nephews; aunts and uncles; cousins; and her special friend, Linda Anderson.
May Lynn rest in peace with all family and friends who have gone before her. She will be missed but fondly remembered by all who loved and knew her.
VISITATION: 11 a.m. Wednesday until the 12 noon funeral service in Williams-Lobermeier Funeral Home, 3208 W 3rd Street, Duluth.
