Memorial Arrangements Made For Lynn Leedy

Filed under: Obituaries,The Buzz |     

Mary Lynn Leedy (“Lynn”) passed peacefully surrounded by her family and friends on July 2, 2021 in her hometown of Oklahoma City. Lynn was born January 25, 1946 in St. Louis, Missouri to J. Walter Duncan Jr. and Ann Louise’s Burke and is survived by her beloved children Bradley Burke Leedy and Sarah Lynn Dooley (and David) and grandchildren Bailey Paulson (and Devin), Isley Kate Leedy and Mary Lynn Leedy.

Lynn’s love of horses was only eclipsed by her love of family. She was an accomplished horsewoman by any measure. From earning her first World Championship at the age of nine to her most recent love and ownership of So Dang Lazy “Leroy,” her life was filled with accomplishments and success in the horse world. Some of Lynn’s most noteworthy accomplishments include:

  • Acquiring Dandy Zippo in 1989. They went on to make history, including becoming the leading sire of performance horses in 1997
  • Winning multiple World Championships in Western Pleasure, Halter, Saddleseat and Fine Harness.

In recent years, Lynn found her equine kindred spirit in Leroy. He offered Lynn her final rides, and she so cherished every stride.

The family would like to acknowledge the dear partnerships Lynn shared with so many horsemen and women over the decades. She was the first to acknowledge all of the help she received from so many trainers, breeders, and friends. She often spoke of these relationships with the same endearment as she spoke of her children and grandchildren. The list is too long to mention, but we would be remiss in not acknowledging all of your impact on her life.

A funeral service will be held Britton Christian Church at 10 am on July 20, 2021, with burial to follow at Rose Hill.

The family suggest donations be sent to Britton Christian Church or King’s Klinic both located at 922 NW 91st st. Oklahoma City, OK 73114.
