Kay LaPrile Lynam, beloved wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and friend, was called home by her Heavenly Father on September 20,2019 at the age of 82.   She was a woman of unwavering faith who constantly nourished others with her knowledge, testimony, service, and love of the Savior. When she wasn’t busy planning family gatherings, gardening, canning, journaling, or keeping a beautiful home she would be found in the service of others.

She was the 2nd child and only daughter born to Raymond and Sylvia Winkler of Greybull, Wyoming on June 21, 1937.  Kay grew up with her brothers Gary, Bob and Roy Winkler on the farm.  Kay graduated from Greybull High School in 1956 and turned 19 a couple weeks after her marriage to Bill Lynam.  Bill and Kay were married on June 1, 1956 in the Burlington LDS church and later sealed in the Idaho Falls Temple.

Family meant everything to Kay, she dedicated her life to rearing and raising her four children:  Vicki, Connie, Robert, and Kimberly and later extended that same dedication to her 21 grandchildren and 30 great grandchildren.

Kay retired in 1999 from the Basin school lunchroom and later from bus driving. Prior to that she did seasonal work driving beet truck for Vern Harrison. She also served in a variety of church callings to include Relief Society President, scout leader, and in the Young Woman’s Organization.  

It didn’t take long for people to know that the most beautiful part of mom was her heart. She always worked side by side with the love her life for 57 years.

Kay is survived by her children Vicki Croft of Lovell, Connie Dickinson (Larry) of Thermopolis, Robert Lynam (Heather) of Morgan, Utah, and Kimberly Acton of Cody, Wyoming. Also, 21 grandchildren and soon to be 30 great grandchildren and her brother Roy (Sheryl) Winkler. She was preceded in death by her husband Bill Lynam, mother Sylvia Winkler, father Ray Winkler, two brothers Gary and Bob Winkler, and two granddaughters Baylee and Cassie Kay.

A viewing will be held at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Basin, Wyoming on Thursday September 26th, 2019 from 10:00 to 10:45 am.  The funeral services will begin at 11 a.m., interment at the Basin Cemetery.

We would like to extend a thank you to the family and friends who have carried our family through this difficult time.
