In memory of
Lynn Brown Storey
Lynn Brown Storey Nov. 23, 1940 - Feb. 14, 2017 Salinas Lynn Brown Storey, age 76, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, February 14, 2017 at Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula (CHOMP) from complications after having heart surgery on Monday, February 6th. She is survived by her loving husband of 54 years, Dr. Stephen Storey; her son Dr. Jeffrey Storey, his wife Kelly and their daughters Kasey and Kendra of Cheyenne, Wyoming; her daughter Julie Malone, her husband Eron and their children Justin, Tobey and Caitlynn of Salinas, California; and her daughter Amy Rattner, her husband Andrew and their sons Jacob and Tyler of Woodside, California. She is also survived by a large and loving extended family and close friends. Lynn attended Palo Alto High School, where she met her husband Stephen, before attending Smith College and Stanford University, where she got her B.A. in History in 1962. She went on to receive an M.A. in Education from Stanford University in 1965. Lynn married the love of her life, Stephen Storey, in 1962 at Memorial Chapel at Stanford University. After living in various locales across the country, she and Stephen finally settled down in Salinas in 1972 where Stephen practiced orthopedic surgery for 32 years. For the last 13 years, Lynn and Stephen split their time between their homes in Salinas, California and Santa Fe, New Mexico. Lynn was first and foremost a devoted wife, mother and grandmother. She spent as much time as possible with her three kids, their spouses and her seven grandchildren, who were her pride and joy. Each of her kids and grandkids had a close, meaningful relationship with her and considered her a constant source of unconditional love and support. She was passionate about her family and friends, and her vibrant enthusiasm, love of life and keen sense of humor were true hallmarks of her personality. She never met a stranger and usually befriended people within five minutes of meeting them. Her warmth and love will never be forgotten by all who knew her. Lynn was also a dedicated professional volunteer for over 40 years. She served on the Board of Directors of Planned Parenthood and she was an active member and past President of the Junior League of Monterey County and the Medical Auxiliary of the Monterey County Medical Society. She and Stephen also annually sponsored emerging folk artists from across the globe, enabling them to come to Santa Fe and participate in the International Folk Art Market. Lynn also served on the Board of Directors of Lennox International, Inc. for 18 years. In her later years, she loved spending time with her family, playing bridge with friends and attending her "Bad Girls Book Club" each month. A Private Memorial Service Celebrating Lynn's life will be held in March 2017. In lieu of flowers, her family kindly requests that contributions be made in Lynn's name to Planned Parenthood Mar Monte.
