Lyn Ritterbrown Goffaux peacefully passed away on October 17, 2021 surrounded by her family. She was born on March 27, 1937 to Paul and Mary Alys (Allie)Ritterbrown in Cody, Wyoming.
Lyn grew up in Sunlight Basin near Cody, Wyoming on Dead Indian Ranch along with her sister “Pokey”. There she was surrounded by horses and beautiful mountains. She was a gifted rider and trainer of horses from a very early age. Her horses, especially Knoxy, were a profound influence and importance throughout her life. This gift she shared with family and many friends. Though her life took her to Utah many times, she always returned to her beloved Wyoming.
In 1976, Lyn joined The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She served faithfully in many callings in the church, she especially loved teaching the children in Primary and singing in the choir. She had a radiating testimony of Our Savior, Jesus Christ and shared it with all who she cared about.
Lyn is survived by her children, Julie Kirschman; Celeste Rosquist (Ron); Paul Goffaux (Sherry) and Frances Burgerson (Brett); 18 grandchildren and 27 grandchildren and her sister, Nova Young “Pokey”
She is preceded in death by her parents, two grandchildren and a great grandson.
