Lynette Stewart Hollingshead
On Saturday, April 3, 2021, Lynette Stewart Hollingshead, 55, passed away suddenly at her home in Brigham City, Utah due to complications from cancer. Born on December 3, 1965 in Las Vegas, Nevada to Daryl Martin and Nancy Ann Morrell Stewart, Lynette was a spitfire from her very first day. She went on to graduate from Box Elder High School in 1984, and continued her education at Weber State University where she earned her bachelor's degree in business. Following college, Lynette served an LDS mission to the Madrid Spain Mission. On November 19, 2005, Lynette married her sweetheart Jon W. Hollingshead in the Logan temple.
Being an incredible business woman and creative, Lynette was employed as a computer analyst at TQS in Roy, Utah while she simultaneously owned and operated the Hem Stitchery in Ogden, Utah. She loved taking her wares to craft fairs and using her skills to create--everything from tie dying to sandblasting to remodeling houses. Her hobbies included gardening, folk dancing, sewing, and carrying on the tradition of her mother's family: quilting. When she wasn't crafting or mastering the art of quilting, you could find her spending time with her loved ones. One of Lynette's most notable qualities was her ability to love and care for others. She always had time to listen, to talk, and to give advice. She made everyone feel like they were her favorite person. She was a mother to all she met, including her friends and their kids, her neighbors, and her nieces and nephews.
Lynette was a loving wife, sister, aunt, niece, cousin, and friend. She is survived by her husband, Jon; one brother, Travis (Yeonwha) Stewart; one sister, Darrylann Stewart; three nieces, Kylie Stewart, Denia Stewart, and Bradie Jill Jones; three nephews, Caden Stewart, Morgan Lopez, and Liam Lopez; and her best friends and their children who always counted Lynette as their "other mother." The family would like to thank the Utah Cancer Specialist for their outstanding care to Lynette.

We loved Lynette. She was fun and outgoing. She was so supportive in the Pleasant View 8th Ward. We enjoyed floating the Snake River with her and her friends. She had a kind heart and was willing to help others. She taught the sisters all how to dip chocolates and Shared her talents with many. We have so many wonderful memories of Lynette. Love Bishop Larry and Maree Wadman
Oh, Jon. I am one of Lynette's customers, who got to know how lovely a lady she was. Please know how my heart breaks for you and the family. Janet Reinhart
She was a delight to speak to whenever I needed blankets hem stitched. Sad to lose a creative soul. God bless.
So sorry to hear of Lynette’s passing! She was such a kind soul! Jon and family are in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time!
Lynette made a beautiful glass etched baking dish for me... many years ago. There has never been a single time when I've used it that I have thought about our friends, her sparkling love of life, and her appreciation of folk dancing. We shared institute memories, folk dancing connections and "Jon" ... oh how she loves Jon!!
Jon, I m so deeply sorry for your loss. Lynette is one of those beautiful, sincerely grateful souls that I personally longed to be like. My prayers and love will be with you and your family!
I am so sorry to read this I helped her and her husband as a Kitchen Designer. My condolences.
Jon, I am so sorry to see this! Am thinking of you and pray that you may find comfort in the love that is being shared. God Bless!
Jon, I am so sorry to hear this. I will always remember the fun times that we had in the singles ward. Lynette was always so happy.
Other than Lynette always having a smile, being talkative, friendly, caring, and a great laugh, she and I had so much fun going dancing in our early 20's.
