Lynn Bierman, 68, years of age, and a resident of Rocky River, passed away suddenly Thursday, July 26, 2012 at Fairview Hospital.
She was born August 30, 1943 in Amherst, Ohio, where she was raised and graduated from Marion L. Steel in the class of 1961. Lynn had made her home in Rocky River for the last twelve years.
She was a real estate broker for over thirty years and owned and operated CRS Realty for ten years. Lynn loved her pets and was a supporter of the local animal shelters. She enjoyed her weekly gathering with family and friends for breakfast at Gina's Place. Lynn was an avid sports fan. In 1970, Lynn was inspired to start "Operation Love", an organization that touched hundreds of young people from poor areas. It was the beginning of the county cupboard, which collects food for the needy to this day.
Survivors include her twin sister Lois Bittinger and her daughters Sherry and Cindy Minn of Rocky River with whom Lynn had made her home; several other nieces and nephews; as well as sister-in-law Betty Bierman of Urbana, Ohio.
