Carralyn Parker Barnette “Ms. Lynne”, a native of Hinsdale, IL and a resident of Daphne, AL, passed away on Monday, June 29, 2020 at the age of 76.
Ms. Lynne was a long-standing manager of the local Daphne and Fairhope Waffle House Restaurants. She was always available for a friend in need. While she never personally served in the military, she was a military spouse, daughter, mother, and friend. Ms. Lynne loved going to Mystic hockey games, Auburn Football, all sports, reading and most of all, her grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Though her travels took her as far away as Germany, her favorite place was at home with her family. Ms. Lynne passed just as she lived, with dignity and grace. She will be deeply missed.
