Our beloved Lynn Marie Lardinois Soderlind, age 53, left us on November 10, 2023, at home, surrounded by her daughter, mother, father, and other members of her family. She was born March 20, 1970, in Green Bay, Wisconsin, the fourth child and only daughter to Vince and Sandy Lardinois.

In March 1971, the Lardinois family moved to Colorado Springs, Colorado where Lynn, along with her family made her home until she moved to Arizona and worked in the travel industry, fostering friendships that would endure for the remainder of her life.

Lynn’s love of travel led her to visit over ten countries around the world including Sweden where she lived for 17 years, working in childcare, and raising her beautiful daughter, Evelina. With her love for adventure, Lynn also spent much time enjoying the outdoors and even skydiving within a couple months of her passing.

Upon returning to Colorado with her daughter in July 2019, Lynn began working at Rocky Mountain Montessori Academy where she attained many certifications and became the director of the academy. Lynn had a deep and lasting impact on so many of the children to whom she endeared herself and will miss her dearly.

Lynn is survived by her daughter, Evelina Soderlind; parents: Vince and Sandy Lardinois; brothers: Scott (Tina) Lardinois, Steve (Tracy) Lardinois, Craig (Deborah) Lardinois; nephews: Christopher (Danielle) Sorrells, Marquis Lardinois, Brendan (Valeria Castillo) Lardinois, Alex Lardinois; nieces: Amber (Cory) Sandoval, Hannah Lardinois, Isabelle Lardinois; great-nieces: Paige Sorrells, Faith Sorrells; and great-nephew, Kolby Sorrells.

Lynn’s Celebration of Life will be held on Friday, December 15, 2023, at 11:00 am at St. Patrick Roman Catholic Church, 6455 Brook Park Dr., Colorado Springs, Colorado 80918. A luncheon will be provided immediately following the service.

The family also wishes to thank Pikes Peak Hospice for providing comfort and support through Lynn’s final days.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made in Lynn’s name to the Pikes Peak Hospice Foundation (pikespeakhospice.org/donate-today/).

    Sending you my most profound sympathy in the loss of Lynn. I so enjoyed getting to know her at the Family Picnic she attended a couple years ago. She was so fun and interesting to spend time with.

  6. Still in shock from the passing of another Class mate (Rich Ward.) The sad news about Lynn tugs a little harder at my heart strings. Just this past summer I got to visit with Lynn for a couple hours at our class reunion while we played several games of pool until Lynn was too tired to play.
    She displayed her true and beautiful nature. Never down & Never out!! And if it wasn’t for her illness
    I’m sure I would have had to rack the pool balls a couple more times. Lynn was a Beautiful person with a tender soul, an adventurous spirt all rolled into her “Scrappy personality.” And personally… That was my favorite part.
    Rest easy “Sweet little Lynn” so we can pick up our pool game on the other side.
