Mary Lynn Kroger

July 4, 1946 ~ December 30, 2021 (age 75)


Marilyn Winter on the Fourth of July 1946, "Lynn" thought fireworks displays were for her birthday. She was influenced by the Cincinnati Art Academy near her childhood home in Mount Adams as a sketch artist and lover of pastels. Lynn loved snowmen and used the motif as the basis of her craft business. She loved music but especially the Beatles, Rod Stewart and Bob Dylan. Even after Alzheimer's stole most of her memory she could still sing all the lyrics to any Beatles song. She changed her name to Mary Lynn in 2007. Lynn was an animal lover! In addition to loving birds, she had a close bond with her dogs Sockie, Buster, Molly and Daisy. She is preceded in death by her parents Edward Winter and Margaret Hille, her sisters Joan  Muenchen and Ann Wessels, her grandson, Josua Stabner and her devoted husband of 44 years, Thomas H Kroger. Lynn is survived by her children Chanah Kimberly Winter, Stan (Marina) Stabner, Catherine Kroger, Karen (Brian) Schmigiel, seven grandchildren and one great grandchild. Donations in lieu of flowers can be made to My Sister's Garden (
