A celebration of life brunch, honoring both Lynette Lynn Dobson and her mother, Rea Dobson, will be held Sept. 8 at Deyo Reservoir in Weippe, Idaho, beginning at 10 a.m. All close friends, colleagues, and family are invited to attend and share stories and memories. Following this brunch, a larger celebration will be held for Lynette at the Best Western Lodge at River’s Edge in Orofino, Idaho, beginning at 1 p.m. Everyone who knew and loved Lynette is invited to attend. Lynette passed away peacefully among family and friends on Aug. 21, 2019, at the University of Washington Medical Center in Seattle. Lynette was diagnosed with Triple Negative Breast Cancer in July 2018. Lynette’s mother Rea passed unexpectedly on May 27, 2019. Both of these amazing women made such huge impacts on the children they both taught over the years and will be treasured by so many.

In lieu of flowers, please consider contributing to the Lynette Dobson Memorial Scholarship Fund, which has been established at Lewis Clark Credit Union and the Rea Dobson Memorial Scholarship fund where you can donate at any Potlatch credit union branch. This money will be used to help graduates go on and change the world for the better.
