Flynn was born on August 14,1932 in Decatur County, TN and was one of 12 children born to the late Connie and Lector Rimmer. She lived a modest life and was a humble and generous person who always thought of those around her before herself. She loved people which was one of the biggest reasons she loved working for Walgreen’s for 27 years. Her customers were more of friends than customers.
