Lynn Parrott

Obituary of Lynn Ann Parrott

Lynn Ann (Sussenberger) Parrott passed away suddenly on Monday, April 20, 2020.  She was 49 years old.  Lynn was a single mother of four and a clerk at the Registry of Motor Vehicles.  Lynn was born in Winchester.  She was a lifetime resident of Burlington.  From a very early age, Lynn was an exceptional athlete.  Her family were members of the Burlington Swim and Tennis Club.  Lynn was a member of the club’s swim team, took tennis lessons, and had many of great friends whom she spent the summer with.  In high school, she was a 4-year Varsity athlete in Gymnastics, Swimming, and Tennis.  She earned 10 Varsity Letters during her 12 seasons.  Her hard worked earned her a scholarship to Northeastern University.  Her love of sports remained with her.  She became an avid fan of all Boston teams, her favorite being the Boston Bruins, Red Sox, and of course the Celtics.

She was thrilled when her 4 children, all talented athletes, found sports that they truly loved.  Lynn was the mom who was at all their sporting events.  There were youth sports, high school teams, and AAU teams so her home had a revolving door and she was always chauffeuring the kids from one practice or game to another.  She wouldn’t have had it any other way.  She was there to celebrate their victories and was the one to console them in their losses and missteps.  No matter what, she couldn’t be prouder of them as athletes and the young adults they have grown up to be.  Many family getaways involved some sort of sporting event, but vacations were often spent at Lake Winnipesaukee snowmobiling, swimming, and creating lasting memories.  Being a single mother for the past 12 years, with 4 very active children and a full-time job was a constant juggling act for Lynn, but she would not have wanted it any other way. She would do anything for her children that she loved so much. 

Lynn had worked at the Registry of Motor Vehicles for almost 20 years.  She was at the Reading Branch and currently at the Wilmington branch.  She worked mainly with car dealerships and insurance companies.  She was the type of person that everyone enjoyed working with.  She had a bubbly personality, a kind heart, always wanted everyone to be happy.  She would give customers the attention they deserved and always tried to assist them whenever possible.  Her regular customers she treated them as friends.  Lynn’s passing will be difficult for her customers, coworkers, and especially her family.  She was a bright and shooting star that lifted the spirits off those she touched, and her memory and spirit will live in the hearts of those she loved. Lynn will surely be missed by many, many friends including two Lisa Cohen and Kim Short. She may be gone from our sight, but she will never be gone from our hearts.

Lynn was the loving mother of William, Brett, Rebecca, and Blake. Daughter of William and Helen (Spence) Sussenberger of Tewksbury.  Sister of Dawn Sussenberger of Lowell and Amy Sussenberger of Tewksbury.  Longtime companion of Chris Ferragamo of Wakefield.  She also leaves her beloved dog, Buster. At this time, services will be private.  In lieu of flowers, memorials in Lynn’s name may be made to St. Jude Children’s Hospital, or 501 St. Jude Place, Memphis, TN, 38105, or the charity of your choice.  For obituary and on-line guestbook, see   Arrangements by the Edward V.
