MOUNT VERNON — Lynn M. Gaster, 61, of Mount Vernon, died early Friday, Oct. 18, 2019, at her residence.

Born April 11, 1958, in Upper Sandusky, she was the daughter of the late Floyd and Donna L. (Patterson) Gaster.

Lynn is survived by her son, Dirk Harney of Ostrander, five siblings: Lawrence (Debbie) Gaster of Toledo, George (Carla) Gaster of Ashland City, TN, Nancy (Larry) Roop of Shelby, Dennis (Lori) Gaster of Bowling Green and Mike Gaster of Upper Sandusky; and many nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her parents and a brother, Floyd Gaster.

Lynn was an in home health care provider. She dedicated her life to the care of her friend, Roger Hite for the past six years.

She enjoyed collecting spinning wheels which she used to spin her own yarn. She also enjoyed gardening and was an avid fan of the movie, “Wizard of Oz.”

Family meant the world to Lynn. She loved family history and would do what ever possible to preserve it. She unselfishly put others before her, probably to a fault.
