Obituary: Lynn M. Giraud

Lynn M. Giraud


Lynn M. Giraud, 51, of Quincy and Wenatchee, Wash., passed away on Sept. 19, 2018, in Wenatchee.
Lynn was born April 1, 1967, in Goldendale, Wash., to her parents, John Henderson and Nancy Henderson. She was the eldest of their three children. Her siblings are Dawn Henderson/De Leon, of Soap Lake, and Robert Henderson, of Kalama.
During her youth, Lynn accompanied her father to many different locations and states due to his career as a railroad laborer. She attended her last portion of school in Lyle, Wash., where she began her journey as a mother.
Later in life, Lynn and her three children, Lisa Henderson/Pearl of Ephrata, Wash., Justin Winningham, of Quincy, and Katherine Moore/Carlson, of Ephrata, moved to Quincy in 1998, where she met and married her husband Sean Giraud, who had a son, Trase Giraud. It was there that they raised their children together and watched them grow families of their own.
She is survived by her husband, siblings, children, nieces, nephews and her six beautiful grandbabies: Dakota McAfee (Lisa’s); Jayda Winningham and Mazee Winningham (Justin’s); Rhylee Carlson, Coal Carlson and Oaklynn Palmen (Katherine’s).
Lynn was an infectious soul who was loved by all. She touched many hearts, in many communities while tackling her career goals in management. Lynn was career-driven, however, many of her true passions were fishing with her family, motocross with her grandson, her pets, wheeling in the mountains and the ocean. She adored spending time with her children, siblings and watching her grand-babies succeed.
