Jim Guidry Commentaries Hurricane Ike Remembered
In Remembrance
Lynn Marie Sullivan


Lynn Marie Sullivan was born in Galveston on November 5, 1957, to Patrick James Sullivan and Mary Sullivan. After a courageous battle with cancer during which neither her spirit nor her good humor waned, she died peacefully on December 24, 2008, at Houston Hospice.

Lynn was a graduate of O’Connell High School and of the University of Texas at Austin. She was a Certified Public Accountant, a profession she practiced for more than twenty-nine years at Ansell & Ansell, now DRDA. There her good nature, affability and competence earned her the highest regard from clients and peers. She was particularly grateful to Lee and William Ansell and to her colleagues for their support and friendship.

Lynn was an active member of the Treasure Ball Association, the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo Association and of the Texas Exes Alumnae Association. She was an avid UT sports fan. Lynn dearly loved her son Conner to whom she was devoted and of whom she was proud. She fondly remembered Caribbean journeys with devoted life partner Eric Valentine.

Lynn was preceded in death by her father Patrick Sullivan. She is survived by her loving son Conner Stephen Smith of Galveston; by her mother Mary Sullivan of Galveston; brother Patrick Terrence Sullivan of Bastrop; sister Carol Martorell and brother-in-law Charles Martorell, both of Galveston. She is also survived by nephews Patrick James Sullivan, Ryan Sullivan and wife Katherine, and Patrick Martorell and wife Deborah; niece Lori Anne Fickessen and husband Keith and grand niece Katie. She will be especially missed by life-partner Eric Valentine of Houston and his son Justin.

A memorial service will be held at 1 p.m. on Saturday, January 3, 2009, at St. Patrick Catholic Church, Broadway at 34th Street, Galveston.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be sent to:

Houston Hospice, 1905 Holcombe Boulevard, Houston, Texas 77030; or to Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, Educational Fund, P.O. Box 20070, Houston, Texas 77225.
