Myrna “Lynn” Ulmer was born November 19, 1935, in Wichita, Kansas. She was the only child of Walter and Inez (Williams) Wonder. On March 1, 1945, Lynn was baptized and confirmed in Boise City, Oklahoma.
On October 1, 1977, Lynn married Harvey Ulmer at Lutheran Church of Hope in what is now known as the Chapel of the Crosses. Then on December 11, 1977, she became a member of LCHope and her commitment to the church began. While a member of LCHope, Lynn was active in numerous activities. She spent two years serving as Financial Secretary and over 10 years as Greeter Coordinator. No one could turn Lynn down when she called.
Lynn spent 21 years working for Storage Tek in the Accounting Department before retiring. She also spent many years selling Avon products. Some LCHope members knew her as their “Avon Lady” long before she joined the church. Joining LCHope came with ready-made friends.
Over the years Lynn and Harvey did a lot of traveling and camping with Family Campers. It was through these camping trips that Lynn was able to visit 49 of the 50 states. As Lynn’s health declined and traveling was less, she and Harvey spent a lot more time going to the grandchildren’s softball games and Rockies games. She loved to cheer for her teams.
Lynn was a real card player. She played in many bridge groups in the Broomfield area. You could always count on Lynn to be ready to play if you started a card game. She loved to teach any newcomer card games like bridge, hand &foot, and many other games.
In the latter years of her life, Lynn’s health had taken a toll on her. She was not in church every Sunday like she had been in the past. When Lynn was there on a Sunday morning it was her smile and the cheer in her voice that made everyone happy.
Lynn claimed the promise of her baptism on August 24, 2020. She is survived by her loving and caring husband of 42 years, Harvey; her sons, Larry and Leslie King; and her daughter, Sherry Templeton. Also surviving Lynn are her step-children: Monte Ulmer (Laura), Russel Ulmer (Barbara) and Monica Poole; as well as 9 grandchildren and 7 great-grandchildren.
