Lynn Bitner, age 85, passed away Friday, January 3, 2020 at her home in Humble. Lynn was born November 29, 1934, the only child of Jack and Wilma Scruggs Dawson. She grew up in the Creek Community in Houston County and shared many fond memories of her grandmother, playing at her home and frequently swimming in Georgia Camp Creek with her cousins. This is where she learned of God. The Dawson family later moved to Houston where Lynn graduated from Milby High School and attended college in San Marcos. She married the love of her life, Bobby Bitner, April 16, 1954 and determined that being a wife and mother was her life’s calling. Together, they created a beautiful family. Lynn adored her daughters, Becky, Brenda, Beverly, and Belinda who brought her the sons she never had. She loved to be with family and friends sharing her love of Christ with all she met anytime and anywhere. Her life was a living example of one of her favorite Bible verses, Ephesians 4:32 – “And be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving one another, just as God also forgave you in Christ.” Lynn had many talents: crafting, quilting, crocheting, and was a gifted florist. She was anointed to sing and loved to attend and join in on 5th Sunday Singing. Lynn was a member of the Sunshine Singers and Georgia Camp Baptist Church, faithfully attending anytime the doors were open, active and involved in many outreaches. Her home was an open door for anyone who needed a listening ear, it was a gathering place where everyone felt welcomed. She had the ability to make others feel they were special and had worth and value, loving them for who they were and not what they had or had not done.

Lynn is survived by daughters, Becky Dacus and husband, Leo of Austonio, Brenda Driver and husband, Mike of Humble, Beverly Pegoda and husband, Tommy of Humble, Belinda Black and husband, Larry of Cleveland; grandchildren, Teresa Varieur and husband, Roger, Nancy Znidarsic and husband, Tim, Terry Dacus, Renee Pegoda, Christen McDougald, Laci Bryant, Ziry Pegoda; great-grandchildren, Bobby Varieur and wife Taylor, Kevin Varieur, Billy Varieur, Hailea Znidarsic, Connor Znidarsic, Edward Rothlander III, Jasmin Padron, Axton Pegoda, Heidi Pegoda, Cody McDougald, Christopher McDougald; great-great grandson, Garrett Varieur.
