Lynn’s service will be livestreamed below starting at 2:00 PM Monday, August 28, 2023.

Lynn Reneé (Harrison) Holzer was born on December 4th, 1953 to parents Ken & Lucille (Otie) Harrison in Mobridge, SD. She grew up with 3 older brothers and spent most of her childhood in Mobridge, SD and graduated high school there in 1972.

That same year she married Richard Holzer and together they had 3 children, Shawn, Amy & Chrissie. Initially living in California, after Rich finished serving in the U.S. Navy they returned to South Dakota making their home in Mobridge and later Aberdeen. Lynn was very creative and always enjoyed fashion and decorating. Early in life she would often sew clothes of all kinds for her and the family. Education was also very important to Lynn so in 1989 she decided to go to college and they moved to the Fargo-Moorhead area so she could attend North Dakota State University. Lynn graduated in 1993 with a B.S. in Human Development. After that she worked at the YWCA Shelter in Fargo and later Thrifty White Drug as a Pharmacy Tech until she officially retired on December 30, 2022.

Lynn enjoyed traveling, watching sports and listening to music. Lynn always had music playing and it was usually the Beattles. Over her life she made trips to Europe, Alaska, and Mexico among others. She was also quietly very competitive and loved her Minnesota Vikings and NDSU Bison football.

Lynn lived out her life lifting up others. She enjoyed being around friends and family and always had time for coffee and conversations. She was happiest with a group of friends or whenever her family would gather. She loved hearing everyone’s stories and sharing her thoughts on just about anything. Most of all Lynn loved to laugh and her smile was as big as her heart. Later in life no one made her smile more than her grandkids. She was so happy to be a grandma and was very proud of each one of them.

Eventually Lynn would succumb to a long-fought battle with liver failure and passed away on August 19, 2023 peacefully in her Fargo home with her daughters by her side.

Grateful for having shared in her life are son Shawn (Kristen) Holzer, daughter Amy Wieland, and daughter Chrissie (Eric) Magness, brothers Larry (Phyllis) Harrison, Mick (Noreen) Harrison, Tom (Betty) Harrison and grand kids Hailee Wieland, Brooklyn Wieland, William Holzer, and Wakeley Holzer as well as numerous nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her father Ken Harrison, mother Lucille (Otie) Harrison, and her grandparents.

Memories Timeline


  1. I am so sorry for your loss. Lynn was my supervisor at TW and soon became a wonderful friend. I will surely miss her stories, her laugh, that smile with the dimples. She was an amazing friend and I’ll surely miss her.

  2. Such a great loss to all who knew Lynn. I have such fond memories of vacations in Mobridge with the cousins. I feel fortunate we kept in touch throughout the years and she will be missed. What a beautiful soul!

  3. My condolences to you all-
    I was one of the weekly deliverers for Meals on Wheels for Lynn. She was always smiling, waiting for me at the door. We would visit a little and her cat always made an appearance.
    So sorry for your loss!

  4. I am so sorry for your loss. I had the honor of working with Lynn for almost 12 years. I will cherish the memories of her smile and kindness to so many people.

  5. I can still hear your giggles although you’re far away. You have made an impression on me that will last a lifetime, thank you. May you finally rest in peace and fly like an angel that you’ve always been. ❤️

  6. Oh my dear friend Lynn you were such a joy to be around. Your stories made me laugh so much, sometimes until I almost cried. We had some wonderful times. Going to see your daughter sing and the woman’s showcase at the Fargo Theater. You will surely be missed. So glad the OG TW girls were able to get together one last time. Until we meet again Trixie ( the name she gave me)

  7. Lynn, you will be so missed! Being around you brought joy & laughter in my life. I’ll miss our talks. Deepest sympathy to the family.

  8. I will always hold near to my heart the deep conversations we would have. You were one the most loving, understanding, funniest and strongest woman I knew. I will love and miss your beautiful soul.

  9. Amy, Hailee and Brooke. I have been praying for you all dosing this time. I loved hearing the stories Amy would tell about her mom. I pray you all find peace in this very hard, very sad time. I love you Ames!

  10. I just saw that Lynn has passed. I am so sorry. I graduated from Mobridge High School a year after Lynn, but I didn’t know her well then. We started chatting online a few years ago and became friends. I enjoyed chatting with her and others in her class, and I enjoyed her humor and personality.
