Lynnae Dorene Thompson was born February 27, 1961 in Sioux Falls to Charles Sr. and Irene (Neve) Thompson. She was raised and attended school in Sioux Falls before she went to work for several different business throughout her life, including Taco Johns, Lewis Drug, and Bonanza. On December 11, 1981, Lynnae married Sheldon Clark in Sioux Falls and to this union three children were born.
Lynnae was a very caring and generous soul. She loved to volunteer at her kids’ school and played “Mrs. Claus” at several seasonal gatherings. She also started the Santa Claus Lane in Sioux Falls by gathering the neighbors to make the designs, paint and then place them in the front lawns of E First St in Leaders Edition. Lynnae also loved to sew and embroidery and made many clothes for herself and her children as well as several blankets. Her favorite hobby was to collect angels of all types which becomes fitting as now she is an angel watching over her family today.
Lynnae will be deeply missed by her children, Kailyn (Jeremy) Clark, Stacie Clark, and Abigail (Joshua) Mindeman; eight grandchildren, Dylan, Hunter, Alexis, Allyn, Anthony, Austyn, Andrew, and Zachary; her mother, Irene (Hank) Ishida; three siblings, Mark (Paula) Thompson, Chuck (Michele) Thompson, and Jodie (Mark) Lundy; and many aunts, uncles, cousins, and her best friend, Angie Langley.
Lynnae was preceded in death by her father, Charles Thompson Sr., and one brother, Charles Thompson Jr.
