Lynn was born in Flint, on May 27, 1952, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Leo and Janis (Gohl) Bragg. Educated locally, Lynn graduated from Beecher High School with the Class of 1970. She married the love of her life, George Gilliam, on September 12, 1998. Sadly, he preceded her in death on March 12, 2016. Lynn worked as a machine operator until her retirement. Lynn loved to bake pies for everyone for every occasion, with her specialties being peach custard pie and pink Jell-O pie. She had a passion for shopping and loved everything out of the Blair magazines, which filled her closet. Lynn enjoyed traveling with her husband and watching him skeet shoot. She enjoyed traveling and attended the CANUSA games as well as traveled all over the United States. Lynn was an avid Detroit Tigers fan and attended many ball games. If she wasn’t there in person, she always watched the game on TV. Lynn liked to go up north to St. Helen and clear wood and brush and help in any way she could. She also enjoyed the Victorian Art Fair in West Branch. Most of all, Lynn loved her family and will be greatly missed.
