Lynette Lea Frank

Obituary

Lynette Lea Frank died in her home on Wednesday, April 13, 2022, after a 4-year battle with non-alcoholic cirrhosis of the liver and myelodysplastic syndrome. She was 71.

 

Lynette was born on August 26, 1950, in Adrian, MI to Robert and Norma Hawley, on her father’s 35th birthday. In 1968 she graduated from Adrian High School before moving to Ypsilanti to attend Eastern Michigan University. There she reconnected with John Frank. They later married on June 16, 1973, before moving to Milwaukie. Following various moves they landed in Fremont, CA in 1981.

 

Lynette was the mother to Jessica (born in 1983) and Michael (born in 1986). She worked for GMAC before dedicating her life to being a stay-at-home mother to her daughter and son with autism. In this role she was able to devote herself fully to caring for her family, her truest passion.

 

In 2001, Lynette and her family moved to Plano, TX where she spent the remainder of her days. She loved to travel, chat, laugh and snack, but Lynette was happiest surrounded by her family and her dogs.

 

Lynette is proceeded in death by her father Robert, mother Norma and brother Tom. She is survived by her husband John, daughter Jessica, son Michael, brother Garry, niece Heidi and nephews Scott and Lance.

 

In accordance with Lynette’s wishes, no services will be held. Anyone desiring to do so may make a memorial contribution to the Mimi’s Food Pantry of Plano, TX or Friendship Circle of Dallas, TX.

    Beautiful obit. I think this one has hit a lot of us particularly hard, having followed her story on Facebook and witnessing how bravely you and John and Michael have all handled it. I’m so glad she got her friggin’ cruise! She was one-of-a-kind and a delight to all who knew her.

"If I could give 6 stars I would. Aria made a difficult easier to deal with by basically taking care of everything in an efficient but very empathetic manner. I can speak highly enough of Dusty Martin, who helped us with all of the planning and logistics. He was incredibly understanding and helpful."

"Nothing prepares you for the grief you go through when losing a child. I called this funeral home at 2:00 am broken and could barely talk. The amount of compassion and empathy they showed me immediately let me know I found the right place to cremate my son. I cannot thank them enough for their professionalism, SINCERE concern, and commitment to making sure my son was honored in the most respectful way. I hope this Funeral home values her as much as my family and I do."

"I can’t say enough about how helpful and professional Dusty Martin, the funeral director at the Aria Cremation location on NW Highway has been. From my initial call, he was kind and informative. My friend died at home while on hospice and she was picked up in about an hour after receiving the call from the hospice nurse. The person who arrived to pick her up was also very professional/respectful and allowed us to take as much time with her as we wished. When I met with Dusty the next day about arrangements, he explained the process and options available without being pushy or trying to “sell” extras. Throughout the process, he kept me informed and, for example, was careful to be certain I understood the cost of the obituary I wanted and offered some options for reducing that cost if I wished. When I stopped by for another reason and started talking about some of the problems I was having with the pictures and media I hoped to use at a memorial lunch I was planning, he not only listened patiently but offered technology advice and let me use his personal media player. I have had experience arranging cremations for four others using two other local companies, and this experience with Dusty at Aria has been by far the best one I have had."

"My Daddy’s service and our family experience at Aria Northwest Highway was truly blessed. Funeral Director Dustin Martin is the kind of person that you would like to see on a more regular basis – but in his industry – you hope to not see him that often. That being said – THANK YOU DUSTIN for your unending kindness, compassion and friendship through the process. Meeting you and discussing Dallas History, Find A Grave and my Dad’s lifelong contributions to the great City of Dallas was simply wonderful! In memory of my dad James A. Dodd, Sr. – I want to personally thank you and let you know that you made everything better in that moment. Your calling to “Be There” is spot on. Aria has a one in a million guy in you! Bling Blinky of TEXAS Shout Out: God Bless You!!"
