MORTON – Lynn M. Erwin, 61, of Morton, passed away on Thursday, May 6, 2021, at UnityPoint Health Methodist in Peoria.

She was born on February 11, 1960, in Ft. Dodge, Iowa, to Bill and Kay (Ford) Filloon. She married her high school sweetheart, Todd Erwin, on March 10, 1979, in Spencer, Iowa.

Anyone fortunate enough to have known Lynn, knows her family was everything. As a wife, mom, grandma and sister, she spent her entire life devoted to making everyone around her feel welcomed and loved. Some of her greatest joys were hosting Sunday dinners, time in the sun, and celebrating her family’s accomplishments. She will be missed for her tight hugs, her home cooked meals, her unconditional love and her compliments.
