Mary Lynn Sullivan September 28, 1946 - January 31, 2024

Mary Lynn Sullivan, born on September 28, 1946, in Dalton, Nebraska, was a beacon of compassion, resilience, thoughtfulness, and support. Mary had a radiant spirit that was undeniably captivating, making her one of those rare individuals who left a positive mark on every life she touched. Her engaging personality was a testament to her genuine human touch, and she had a knack for making everyone around her feel valued and loved.

Mary’s 30 year career as a financial advisor at the Tinker Federal Credit Union was marked by a steadfast commitment to helping others. Known for her resilience and thoughtful approach, she earned numerous awards recognizing her outstanding accomplishments in her field. In her leisure hours, she enjoyed reading, playing bridge, and engaging in friendly brunch and happy hour gatherings. She was an active participant in several clubs, where her supportive nature and love for good books were well known.

Yet, despite her professional achievements and love for hobbies, what mattered most to Mary was her family and friends. She was a stylish woman who loved her family more than anything and always wished for everyone to get along. Her advice to her grandchildren, “Be good, Be kind, Be sweet,” reflected her nurturing personality and the values she held dear. She leaves behind her loving husband, Robert Sullivan, sisters Anna Faye Van Anne, Betty Jean Baldwin, and brother Ray Eugene Weed, her children Amy Barber, Matthew Barber and wife Kristin, Blake Sullivan, and her grandchildren Garrett Barber, Julian Barber, Berkeley Barber, Jett Sullivan, and Bowie Sullivan. She was preceded in death by her father, Raymond Weed, her mother, Kathryn Miller, sister Kathy Lou Jobman, sister in law Marlene Weed and brothers in law Jim Baldwin, Richard Van Anne and Vernon Jobman.

In the words of Maya Angelou, “People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” Mary Lynn, with her compassionate spirit, will forever be remembered for how she made others feel – loved, valued, and seen. She was indeed a precious gem in the necklace of life, and her absence leaves an irreplaceable void for all who knew her.
