Condolences for Lynn Hurst Kellam

Stacy Fields Hall posted on 2/2/21

Oh my dear Mrs. Kellam, it was my privilege to be your student as Yorktown Elementary for 3rd grade and the first 3/4 combined grade. Later in life, I worked for the School District and got to show you how honored I was to have learned from you. I remember you copying pages of workbooks for me to do during the school months. You fed my thirst for knowledge and it continues to this day. I loved knowing that you saw my little sisters grow up and become adults...even becoming a client for Sommer at the nail salon. While we grieve your passing, we are glad that you are not in pain anymore. I look forward to seeing you again in Paradise. (John 5:28,29) Rest In Peace Mrs. Kellam!

Words cannot express my feelings at your loss of Lynn. She was a bright, shining being who shared her zest for life. She made my last years of teaching so much better better by her presence on our fifth grade team. I will cherish memories of our travels especially the trips to The Masters as well as our wine trip through Oregon. She is missed by many!

Dear Bill and family, Lynn and I taught fifth grade at Dare and she was my daughter’s teacher. I was so grateful to her for taking my girl under her wing as we had relocated to Virginia and missed so many friends. I admired Lynn as a teacher as she instilled her love of reading in the children. Lynn loved shoes, and had quite a collection. Lynn’s love for her family was so apparent as she spoke of you all with adoration and a twinkle in her eye. My sincere condolences on the loss of your wife, mother, and grandmother.

Dear Bill and family, I taught fifth grade with Lynn at Dare, and she also taught my daughter. Lynn took my daughter under her wing as we had relocated to Virginia and had to make all new friends. I admired Lynn as a teacher and her ability to stand up for her beliefs. My heart is saddened for your loss. She talked about her family with great love. Lynn was a woman of great faith, so I know she is with her savior in heaven. I wish you peace in your hearts.

Teaching with Lynn was a privilege like none other in my life. I learned so much from her about children in general and how to best “get things across” to them. I just cannot believe she is gone, and I know that one day I will be with her again!

Bill, no words to express your loss of 52 years. She was a really nice woman, and you 2 were a great pair. Thoughts and prayers are with you and the family. Go on living and make her proud of you as she looks down. She wants you to shoot 71, the next time on the golf course
