Lynn is also survived by Dick’s children Tom (Karen) Schlindwein of Wisconsin, David (Johnny) Schlindwein of Iowa, Liz (Craig) Robley of Minnesota and Kathy (Eric) Dagle of Dubuque. Lynn was passionate, successful, artistic and loved by everyone who met her. Her quick smile and easy laugh were warm and welcoming. She used her passion and drive to run a successful home-based business called Star Print Solutions. Her artistic talent helped propel her success as a businesswoman and entrepreneur as she did business across the United States and with U.S. Air Force units. Lynn, along with two sisters, survived breast cancer. Lynn was actively engaged in fighting breast cancer as she participated in the yearly Susan G. Komen Relay for Life fundraiser in cities such as Des Moines, Dallas, Boston and Honolulu. Looking to make an even more significant impact in the breast cancer fight, Lynn became a founding member of the Iowa Army of Pink. Lynn dedicated her time, energy and skills toward dense breast legislation and education. Her efforts, along with others, aided in the passage of Patty’s Law, which requires patients be notified of dense breast tissue along with their mammogram results. Dense breast tissue can hide a breast cancer diagnosis.
