LYNN FAUVER RIMMER, long time figure skating professional, passed away of natural causes at home in Twin Lakes, Ohio. Lynn received her early figure skating training at the Cleveland Skating Club and later taught there. She also taught figure skating in Troy, Ohio, Rockford, Illinois and throughout northeastern Ohio, including Kent State University. She was a graduate of Laurel School and Allegheny College.

She was preceded in death by her husband Dick Rimmer, also a figure skating coach; son Hayes Rimmer; and father Benjamin Fauver. Lynn is survived by her mother, Ann Thoburn Fauver of Portland, Maine; sister, Victoria Fauver Robb of Charleston, West Virginia; brother William Fauver of Nashville, Tennessee; sister, Jane Fauver of Portland, Maine; and a host of beloved nieces, nephews and grandnieces/nephews.

Lynn loved figure skating, treasuring the time and experiences with her many students, colleagues and friends in the sport over the years. She also loved traveling, a habit she started with her grandmother Ann Bishop Thoburn going to England and enjoyed the summers with her family at Lake Winnipesaukee in New Hampshire. Keeping with her wishes and low-key approach to life, there will be no service or other activities for now.

In lieu of flowers or gifts contributions may be made in Lynn's name to the United States Figure Skating Association: Attn: Memorial Fund, 20 First Street, Colorado Springs, CO 80906 or the Professional Skaters Association Skaters' Fund, 3006 Allegro Park Lane SW, Rochester, MN 55902 or Bissler and Sons Funeral Home & Crematory are handling the arrangements.
