Sharron Cummings

July 29, 1938 — October 12, 2022

Sharron “Lynne” Cummings  84 years.

Beloved wife, mother, grandma, and great grandma.

Lynne passed away October 12th, 2022 in Post Falls, Idaho.

Lynne was born July 29th, 1938 in Kellogg, Idaho. Lynne was the daughter of Robert Turnbow and Lillian “Sis” Dupuis Turnbow.

Lynne was born and raised in the Silver Valley; graduated from Kellogg in 1956. Lynne was united in marriage to Robert “Bob” Cummings on July 13th, 1957. Bob and Lynne recently celebrated their 65th anniversary.

Lynne was the glue of the Cummings family and her community as she committed her time, energy, and love to every single person and project she encountered. Lynne was also an avid walker be it with her beloved pets, family, or friends. Lynne also kept her mind and library busy with her fast-paced reading and kept her hands busy with her many crochet and sewing projects.

Lynne especially loved her summers as she spent them in the sun “Up the River”. “Up the River” was a beloved place by every member of the family as we all have special memories there but the most dominant feature is that Mom/Dad and Grandma/Pa would be there. Be it going rafting, fishing, card games, reading, music, or even work it was and will remain a place of love.

Lynne is survived by her beloved husband Robert “Bob” Cummings of their family home in Kellogg, Idaho; her four children Tammie Olberding (Rick) of Diamond Lake, Washington; Scot Cummings (Leslie) of Pinehurst, Idaho; David Cummings (Kamai) of Spokane Valley, Washington; Heidi Herndon (Dave) of Post Falls, Idaho.

Seven great grandchildren – Taylor Olberding; Mason and Hailey Olberding; Weston and Hayden Schexnider; Harrison and Eleanore Titus.

Lynne was preceded in death by her parents and one brother Robert “Mickey” Turnbow.
