Lynn was born on May 9, 1937 to parents Howard and Billye (Rhodes) Surratt. She grew up in Houston and graduated from Lamar High School. In 1957, Lynn was united in marriage to Charlie Soraci.
Lynn and Charlie made their home in Houston and were blessed with three daughters. Lynn was a loving and dedicated wife and mother. After her daughters were grown, she began her career as a teacher. Lynn loved her work with young people and eventually became the Religious Education Director at St. Rose of Lima School in Houston.
Lynn was also a devoted volunteer and employee of the Red Cross. She believed in helping other people. Lynn’s work with the Red Cross was mostly in administration, but she wasn’t afraid to be in the field – in the aftermath of Hurricane Andrew, Lynn traveled to Florida. She and the other Red Cross personnel spent weeks living in tents helping the locals with recovery efforts.
Lynn was a strong woman. Her faith was an important part of her life. Lynn was very spiritual and was devoted to her Catholic faith.
Most of all, Lynn adored her family. She cherished time spent with her grandkids, and great grandkids, who called her Grandma. She also loved the music of Michael McDonald and was secretly his biggest fan.
Lynn is survived by her husband Charlie; daughters Pam Alexander (husband Larry), Jeni Custer (husband Rick), and Billye S. Klawinsky; grandkids Larry Alexander Jr., Katie Alford, Chas Schuhmann, Steven Klawinsky; great-grandkids Gracie, Anna, and Lucy Alexander, Luke and Charlie Ann Alford, and Natania Schuhmann.
Lynn is preceded in death by her parents.
Pallbearers will be Larry Alexander Sr., Larry Alexander Jr., Steven Klawinsky, Rick Custer, and Eric Alford.
