HEYBURN – Lynda Joyce Brower, our wonderful mother, grandmother, sister and friend passed away in her home on May 23, 2023. She was surrounded by her loving family and holding her granddaughter's hands.

Lynda was born July 28, 1945, to Roy Edward and Viva Joy Sauer. She was the first daughter and second sibling of four. She had an older brother, Ronald Roy, and three younger sisters, Trudee Ann, Roxie Jean and Rita Dawn.

As a young girl, Lynda and her siblings worked hard helping their father on the farm moving sprinkler pipe, helping with spud harvest and peeling seed potatoes. They drove tractors and spent lots of time cleaning their Grade A dairy barn.

Lynda attended grade school and some middle school in Jerome, Idaho. Later the family moved to Mud Lake and eventually to Rupert, Idaho, where she attended Minico High School for a short time. She soon met her first love, James (Jimmy) Moore, on February 17, 1962. At the age of 16 she and Jim were married and moved to Heyburn, Idaho, to start their family.

In 1963, Jim and Lynda welcomed their first daughter, Teresa Lynne; then in 1967, they welcomed another daughter, Wendy Lee. These two girls were their pride and joy.

During her early adult years, Lynda worked many different jobs including a nurse aide and "Pink Lady" at the Burley Hospital, a hairdresser, and had a small in-home daycare. She later retired from Minidoka School District where she took great pride in her job. There she worked with children who had special needs. She had a tender place in her heart for all of them.

Lynda was an excellent crafter, painter and cook. She was very creative and created many unique crafts including birdhouses, flower arrangements, drawings and Christmas ornaments. In their younger years, she and Jim were on several golf and bowling leagues. They were a part of the Elk's organization where she was a Doe and attended many conventions. They loved to dance, camp, go steelhead fishing and travel with friends. Above all their family was their greatest joy.

Jim and Lynda were married for 40 years, until his passing in 2001.

About a year later, Lynda became engaged and married her second love, Lanny Brower, on August 3, 2002. Lanny quickly became the apple of her eye. He was a great blessing to our family. They absolutely adored each other and were the best of friends. They spent their time baking cookies, canning, gardening, caring for their beautiful home and tending to their immaculate yard. They loved spending time with their family doing BBQs and birthday parties. They adored their dogs Sasha and Trixie. They were happily married for nearly 20 years until his passing in 2022. Lanny was the love of her life.

Lynda left behind a legacy of love. She instilled goodness and joy in each and every one of us. The evidence of her love lives on in each of her children and grandchildren. She helped shape who we are and she will be deeply missed.

Lynda was preceded in death by her parents, Roy Edward and Viva Joy Sauer; her husbands, James (Jim) Henry Moore and J. Lanny Brower; and son-in-law, Scott B. Adams.

She is survived by her brother, Ronald (Ron) Sauer; sisters, Trudee Jackson, Roxie (John) Clifford and Rita (Mark) Senkyr; daughters, Teresa Adams and Wendy Pease; grandchildren, Abrey (Owen) Watterson, James Adams, Bethany (Talon) Hendrix, Tehia (Ethan) Taylor, and Teric Pease; and great-grandchildren, Hayden Thaxton, Allie Adams and Paisley Adams.

The funeral will be held at 11 a.m. Friday, June 2, at Rasmussen-Wilson Funeral Home, located at 1350 E. 16th St., in Burley, where family and friends will be received from 5 until 7 p.m. Thursday, June 1, and from 10 until 10:45 a.m. prior to the service on Friday.
