Morrow, Linda

Written by David Green.

Linda “Lin” K. Morrow, 60, of Leesburg, Fla., and formerly of Lyons, Ohio, died Nov. 3, 2011, at the Villages, surrounded by her loving family and under the care of Hospice of the Villages. 

She was born Feb. 11, 1951, to Robert and Virginia A. (Wanless) Hyter. When Lin was a child, she went to live with Wayne and Mary Wyse who loved her and raised her like she was one of their own. On Nov. 3, 1983, she married Dennis Morrow and he survives. 

 Lovingly called “Aunt Lin” by any and all who knew her, she could put a smile on your face at any moment, but you always knew she could wipe it off just as fast.  Never having any children of her own, Lin “adopted” her numerous nieces and nephews and treated them as though they were her own.

Lin loved to go gambling, fishing and making miniature doll houses, but probably one of her most famous hobbies was to make up silly songs about people.

In addition to her husband, she is survived by two brothers, Jeffrey and Barbara Wyse of Morenci, Mich., and John and Julie Wyse of Lyons; two sisters, Laura (and Abel) Flores of Lyons and Karen Amos of Coldwater, Mich.; seven nephews; nine nieces; eight great-nieces and nine great-nephews.  

At Lin’s request cremation has taken place.  Private memorial services will be scheduled at a later date. The burial of her cremains will be held in the spring in Winameg Cemetery, Ohio.

Arrangements were under the direction of the Anderson Funeral Home, Adrian.

    FAYETTE resident Patricia Stambaugh, 64, was declared dead on the scene of a single-vehicle accident Friday morning south of Morenci. Rescue units were called around 9 a.m., but as of Tuesday, law enforcement officers had not yet determined the time of the accident. According to Ohio State Highway Patrol, Stambaugh was driving west on U.S. 20 when her Chevrolet Malibu traveled off the north side of the road and down a steep embankment, coming to rest in Bean Creek (Tiffin River).
  • Athletic Fields
    SPORTS COMPLEX—Fayette’s outdoor athletic facilities will include three ball fields for summer recreation leagues at the southwest corner of the school. The baseball and softball fields, along with the running track, will be constructed on the east side of the school. Outdoor athletic fields were not part of the new school project from 2007, but voters approved a $1.4 million levy for a school addition and the sports fields last August. Both projects are scheduled to be complete by July 20.
