Lynn Ryan Obituary

Lynn Haverick Ryan of Bexley, Ohio passed away peacefully on January 31, 2024.  Lynn was born in Columbus, Ohio on July 6, 1941.  She was preceded in death by her father, Donald Regis Haverick, mother, Barbara Drake Haverick and first granddaughter, Emily Margaret Haugh, who Lynn will be able to hold again in Heaven.  She is survived by her husband of 58 years, Thomas Neth Ryan, daughter, Sarah Ryan (Dan Bartholow), daughter, Jenny Haugh (Mike), and grandchildren Kate and Ryan Haugh; brother, Steve (Ronnie) Haverick and sister, Ann (Rich Barclay) Hoehne. She was a loving and devoted wife, mother, grandmother and friend.

Lynn attended St. Catharine School and Columbus School for Girls. She then graduated Smith College in 1963.  After a brief “career” in New York City, Lynn returned to Columbus where she married her husband and raised her two daughters.

Lynn and Tom enjoyed a long life together with many dear friends. These relationships were forged through the mutual love of Bridge, golf, sports, and travel. Tom and Lynn instilled in their daughters the value and importance of lifelong friendships. 

Lynn was an avid member of several organizations over the years.  She joined The Franklin Park Garden Club with her mother.  She was in TWIG III of Nationwide Children’s Hospital as well as Childhood League.  She was also on the Women’s Board of The Columbus Museum of Art. She enthusiastically participated with friends in the E&L Investment Club.

Lynn took up golf as an adult.  She never had a scratch handicap, but she loved the comradery of the game. She played regularly with Tom and her friends.  Lynn and Tom loved to travel later in life. Their travels took them throughout Europe, Africa, New Zealand, China and South America.

Although she never attended The Ohio State University, she was an avid Buckeye fan. Lynn and Tom had season tickets for football and basketball for decades.  The tailgates with friends were the highlight of every home game.

In the early 70s, Lynn’s parents bought a condo in Naples, Florida.  This became a very special place to Lynn and her family where together they spent nearly every spring break.  Lynn made many special friends over the years at The Billows.

No one loved their Birthday more than Lynn Ryan.  She was born on July 6th and it was perfect way for her to celebrate.  She would start her celebration with the Bexley 4th of July parade.  She loved a good parade.  She also remembered birthdays of everyone she knew—you were guaranteed to receive a birthday card on your special day.

Lynn’s family would like to thank the many caregivers she has had over the past two years.  Meredith, Rachel, Faith, Debbie and Tasha lovingly cared for her and they helped make her final time peaceful.  Special thanks to the wonderful people at Wexner Creekside and Zusman Hospice for the attentive and loving care they gave to her.

A Funeral Mass will be held at 2:00pm on Saturday, February 10th at St. Catharine Catholic Church, 500 S.
