In Loving Memory of Lynn Bandley Featured
Lynn Bandley worked with us at our schools for almost twenty years and her contributions to all of our staff, our children and their families are immeasurable. We have felt at a loss without her since she had to take a medical leave but always hoped for the miracle of her recovery. We will miss her so much. She was such a huge blessing in all of our lives.
Lynn's funeral will be held this Friday, July 11th 2014 at 11am at the Salt Lake Rose Park North Stake Center that is located at 1155 N. 1200 West Salt Lake City UT, with a viewing prior from .
There will also be a viewing the evening before - Thursday, July 10th 2014, at the Mountain View Memorial Mortuary located at 3115 E. 7800 South, Cottonwood Heights, from .
Because Lynn was such an important member of our community we will host a "Celebration of Lynn's Life" at our school and that is planned for beginning at . At the celebration we will have an open mic and anyone who wishes will have the opportunity to speak. Although we know how much Lynn loved all of our students, because this ceremony may extend to two hours or more we are asking that only children who can sit still for that time period attend. At the beginning of the academic year we will have a small ceremony to celebrate Lynn with the children.
We will be giving any updates about the Celebration on our school website www.mcsslc.com and also on our school Facebook page. We will outline the location of the event (it most likely will be held on the Green Space and if so, we would encourage you to wear comfortable clothing as some people may be sitting on blankets on the lawn). We also might invite those who wish to, to bring light refreshments for after the ceremony, during which time you would have the opportunity to mingle with Lynn's family and/or one another.
