Lynn Zarek

Lynn Mae Zarek, 75, Minot, formerly of Butte, ND, died Sunday, February 20, 2022 in a Minot Hospital. She was a beloved sister, aunt, cousin, granddaughter, and friend.

Lynn was born June 30, 1946 at Trinity Hospital in Minot, the daughter of Nick and Lizzie (Demchuk) Zarek. She was raised and educated at Butte and graduated from Butte High School in 1964.

She moved to Grand Prairie, Alberta, Canada where her sister Adeline Hudz lived. She graduated from Peace River Bible Institute in Sexsmith, Alberta. She loved the Lord and had accepted Jesus into her life as her Lord and Savior. After graduating, she moved to Edmonton, Alberta, where she worked in a lawyer’s office as a paralegal. In 1984, she moved back to Butte to care for her mother, Lizzie.

Although Lynn had her struggles in life, she had a very big heart. She hated to see others suffering or in pain. Lynn took great comfort in making a phone call and either offering a heartfelt prayer or asking for a prayer.

The thing Lynn loved most in her life was her dear mother, Lizzie. Lynn also loved flowers-lots of flowers. Writing letters, eating pizza, and devouring a whole container of ice cream were also things that made Lynn happy. Anyone that knew Lynn, would often be handed a catalog, and asked to pick something out for themselves. She would often be told, “Lynn, friendship and love comes free, please no gifts.” Lynn had a complicated life but will be greatly missed by those that truly knew her.

Lynn yearned to be in Heaven with her Lord and Savior and her family members who preceded her. Now she is at peace with the Prince of Peace and enjoying Heaven.

Lynn is survived by: her sisters, Adeline Hudz of Redding, CA and Carol Berg of Bemidji, MN; a number of nieces, nephews and cousins.

Lynn was preceded in death by her parents and brothers-in-law, Paul Hudz and Norton Berg.
