Lynn Smith

April 5, 1961 — January 12, 2023


Lynn Ann Smith, 61, of Clarksville TN, left us to be with Jesus, Thursday afternoon, January 12th, 2023. Her passing at Saint Thomas Midtown in Nashville was very unexpected but she was surrounded by those she held closest to her heart and the room was filled with peace. Lynn was born April 5th, 1961, in Galesburg, IL. The Daughter of Nelson and Enid (Gullickson) Hanks. June 28th, 1986, she married Kim Smith in Phoenix Arizona. She is the mother of four wonderful, young men. Aaron (Nicole), Brandon, Calen, and Curran. She is the grandmother of six, Ryder, Grayson, Asa, Lillia, Tate, and Isabella. She has one brother, Neil (Mary), and two nephews Kai and Tyr. Lynn was raised in Galesburg, IL, around many family members and friends, and always talked warmly about her time growing up there. She graduated Galesburg Senior Highschool in 1979. She attended Augustana College and graduated with a BA in psychology in 1983. Lynn was a woman of incredible faith with boundless love that knew no limit. She was saved by grace, so she handed grace out freely and never hesitated to share her faith, love and wisdom with anyone who would listen. She saw the unseen and lived her life letting them know just that - she saw them. Lynn chased life, and loved to laugh, even in the hardest of times. She loved adventure and to go on road trips with her family, to barbeque in the backyard with friends and love on her children at any given moment. She loved art and music and all things creative. She took up many hobbies like baking, watercolor, quilting and anything she could channel her creative energy into. She was an entrepreneur with her husband Kim and together they ran two very successful cabinet businesses. She loved to adventure with Kim and she loved the way he always made her laugh. The two of them together were wonderful parents who raised four great sons and built them up with kindness, faith and love as a foundation that will spread for generations to come. Lynn was an incredible woman and everywhere she went she made lifelong friends. She affected people in a deep and meaningful way and strengthened the faith of countless. She loved her family and friends, her dogs and cats and every second of life, but most of all she loved Jesus and spent every day seeking to understand his sovereignty in every circumstance. Lynn spread joy to so many and what a blessing she was to everyone who knew her. She will be greatly missed. Lynn will be buried at Williamson Memorial Gardens, Franklin, TN. Burial will be a private family service. A celebration of life to be held in the future.
