October 5, 1935 - August 21, 2020
Dr. Lynn Weiss quietly passed away from this life on Friday, August 21st, 2020 at the age of 84. Dr. Weiss (“Call me Lynn” – to those in her life) will be remembered as a passionate advocate for positive energy, helping those around her, and creating a voice for those who may have not been able to find theirs.
Lynn was a mother, friend, author of more than a dozen acclaimed books, a clinical psychotherapist, talk show host and media personality on WFAA TV & KLIF Radio among others, and a friend that listened while running a clinical practice in the Dallas area for almost 20 years.
Lynn was born on October 5, 1935 in Cleveland, Ohio to Paul Smith Krug and Emma Lee Briggen Krug. She moved to Phoenix, Arizona and graduated from North Phoenix High School and from the University of Arizona. She furthered her education by attaining an MA from New York University and a PhD from the University of Santa Barbara.
Lynn moved to the Dallas area in 1973 where she opened a counseling practice and began her long journey to help shine a light on and create a path for people who were lost in themselves. Over the years she focused her attention on ADD/ADHD, child development, trauma, and abuse. As a counselor, educator, and trainer, she wrote and published more than a dozen books.
In 1992, going into semi-retirement, Lynn moved to Bastrop, Texas, a beautiful piece of land up on a cliff overlooking the Colorado River. She loved living “on the cliff” with Candy (her loving dog). She continued writing her books and consulting over the next dozen years. In the mid-2000’s, she moved back to Dallas to be closer to her grandchildren. Her life-long interests and loves were family and friends, good conversations and creative teamwork, writing, painting, traveling and exploring new places, kindness to people and animals, and the spirituality of nature.
The family would like to express appreciation to the loving care given to Lynn by the staff at Briarview Senior Living.
Lynn is survived by:
Her son Aaron Weiss, his wife Rebecca and children Alexandra and Zachery; her son Mendel Weiss, Mendel’s wife Kim and children Hannah, Jennie, and Ethan; Lynn’s cousins Frederic Mann, Wanda Mann, Nancy Mann Kimbrell, and Lisa Mann Morrison.
Lynn has asked to be cremated and her ashes spread somewhere in nature where she can be close to what she loved. Services will be announced soon.
If anyone has a story, poem or quote, we will be glad to let you read it at the ceremony, or you may want to send it to the guest book on the Aria website. Rest in Peace, Lynn. Enjoy your “view from the cliff”.
Please leave the family condolences and share memories on this website.
