Lynnette A. Fall, 71, passed away surrounded by the love of her family on Friday, March 4, 2022, at Catherine Kasper Life Center as a result of her third battle with breast cancer.
Lynn was born on December 20, 1950, in Plymouth, Indiana to Cecil Fall and Lois Compton. She graduated from Plymouth High School with the class of 1969 and went on to attend college at Marion University in Indianapolis and later obtained her bachelor’s degree from Indiana University South Bend.
She was a talented artist with a love of color that extended well beyond her paintings. She saw beauty everywhere in nature and found tranquility and inspiration in her garden.
Lynn touched many lives through her work with underserved communities including a youth outreach and education program on Chapin Street in South Bend, advocating for the rights of those with disabilities, and her work in the mental health field. She stood up for what is right and wasn’t afraid of the consequences. Her voice was soft but her words were often strong and fearless. She was a member of St. Michael Catholic Church and worshiped with the Poor Handmaids of Jesus Christ at Ancilla. She was a member of the North American Artist Association, the Northern Indiana Pastel Association, and an honorary member of Naptown Riders of South Bend.
She is dearly missed by her son, Collin Fall (Courtney Mayers) of Tempe, AZ; mother, Lois Compton of Plymouth; brother Greg (Jennifer) Compton of Plymouth; sister-in-law, Debbie Fall of Plymouth; close family friends Corey Millea and his son Trey of Mishawaka.
Lynn was preceded in death by her father Cecil Fall, step-father Bob Compton and brother, Mike “Gator” Fall.
Visitation will be held on Sunday, March 13, 2022 from 1-3 pm at Johnson-Danielson Funeral Home, 1100 N. Michigan Street, Plymouth. A memorial service will immediately follow with Fr. Fernando Jimenez officiating.

I’m so sorry to hear you’ve lost Lynn. I remember with fondness the conversations she and I had about bluebirds and flowers when she stopped by my garden. She always had a smile for me.

Any time we spoke with Lynn, it was meaningful. We had the honor of a guided tour with Lynn at her art exhibit at Moon Tree Studios years ago. Her nature paintings were truly wonderful. What an inspiration she has been for us both! She will be missed.

I’m sure no one in her family would be surprised by how good of a friend Lynn was to my Mother and how much she helped us after my Mother passed. That is just the way she was, a very kind and caring person willing to help others. For a very long time I had heard about her from my Mother but never got to meet her till my Father’s funeral and it was obvious why my Mother valued Lynn’s friendship so much. I could tell that she was the kind of person you could immediately feel comfortable with and that she truly cared for others being willing to go out of her way when it was needed rather than shy away as many would. She and my Mother both shared a love of art and after my Mother passed, Lynn helped us gather all of her art supplies and she made sure they all had good homes even establishing a memorial gift in my Mother’s honor. I am certain anyone who knew Lynn, even in passing, was fortunate. She was a jewel and I am sorry for your loss.
