Areline is also survived by two sisters-in-law, Pat Lynn and Mary Lou Jennings.
Family gatherings/dinners were always a joy. She really enjoyed visiting with everyone and seeing all the new babies. All of her children were just as ornery as her, they would tease her at dinners about “mess she and daddy started”. She would smile. She enjoyed reading, flowers and gardening. Areline also enjoyed working on puzzles, watching golf, but most of all she loved her family, especially all of the babies.
Areline was preceded in death by her husband; parents; her eldest grandchild, Rita Lynn Rucker Dec. 31, 2001; three brothers, Harold, Carl and Donald Lynn; four sisters, Marie Six, Rosie Jennings, Clara Jane Shephard, twin sister, Irene Lynn; two brothers-in-law, Walter Jennings and Vernon Jennings; and five sisters-in-law, Betty Kirk, Delcie Von Vain, Gladys Lynn, Iceleen Lynn, and Helen Pew.
