January 1, 1969


Funeral services for Mrs. Freda Lynn, 74 years old, wife of the late James J. Lynn, multi-millionaire insurance executive and philanthropist, will be at 12:30 o'clock Thursday at the Stine & McClure chapel. Burial will be in the Forest Hill Pantheon.

Mrs. Lynn died yesterday at St. Mary's hospital. Mr. Lynn was owner and president of the Lynn Insurance group, until his death in 1955.

Mrs. Lynn lived on a rolling, landscaped 61-acre estate at 1900 East Meyer boulevard, which was once considered as a site for the Metropolitan Junior College-Kansas City. The estate was purchased in 1966 by Research hospital and the Church of the Nazarene, removing it from consideration as a proposed site for the campus. The two institutions paid $1,437,000 for the tract.

Mr. Lynn, who once gave a million dollars in railroad stock to the Self Realization Fellowship in Los Angeles, had a 9-acre private golf course on the estate.

Mrs. Lynn leaves three nieces, Mrs. Freda Fray, 6235 Reinhardt drive, Fairway, Mrs. Frances Richardson, 8901 Mohawk lane, Leawood, and Mrs. Maude Reid, 2710 West Sixty-ninth, Mission Hills, and a nephew, Eugene M Lynn, jr., 5115 Oak street, president of the Lynn Insurance group.

The pallbearers: H. E. Prather, John M. White, Fred Bellemere, jr., Alfred J. Cooper, Dean Swetnam and John Magers.
