Mrs. Crump was born Nov. 6, 1957, in Dos Palos, Calif., She has lived in Alaska for more than 20 years. "Lynn loved collecting unicorns, arts and crafts and most of all supporting her husband with his passion for drag racing. Lynn was a very special and unique woman. She was loved by many for her witty, sarcastic sense of humor. She always had an opinion and didn't care who knew it. She strived to be the best wife, mother, grandmother, sister and friend that she knew how to be. To our father, she was not only a wife, but his best friend. Lynn was a simple and humble woman and didn't like anyone fussing over her. She put up one heck of a fight and was able to keep her independence until the very end. Lynn will always be loved and will be forever missed," her family said.
Mrs. Crump was preceded in death by her mother, Dorothy Lee Gillespie Blaker; father, Charles Carlen Blaker; and brother, Michael Allen Blaker.
