KANNAPOLIS Lynne Doris Bisbee Tiefenauer Mercier, 70, of Kannapolis, passed away Saturday, Sept. 28, 2019, at Atrium Health in Concord. Born Nov. 20, 1948, in Brockton, Mass., she was the daughter of the late William Edward and Sarah Edith Blumberg Bisbee. Lynne is survived by her daughter, Michelle Richards and husband, Tony, of Cave Creek, Ariz.; son, John Tiefenauer of Kannapolis; brother, Dana Bisbee and wife, Jacqueline, of Charlestown, Mass.; and two sisters, Eleanor Young of Brockton, and Barbara Fortin and husband, Edmond, of South Easton, Mass. She will also be missed by her numerous nieces and nephews. Lynne was born and raised in Brockton. She moved to North Carolina more than 20 years ago, where she gained an appreciation for the much simpler lifestyle of the South. She will always be remembered for being funny, outgoing and very generous. Her hobbies included gardening, traveling and reading, with her most recent area of study being the Amish lifestyle. Lynne loved animals, with her big heart leading her to rescue many dogs and cats over the years. A celebration of Lynne's life will be held Saturday Nov. 9, from 1 to 5 p.m., at Stix and Stones, 800 Brockton Ave. in Abington, Mass. Family and friends are encouraged to come share their memories of her. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that memorial donations be made to Cabarrus Pets Society, P.O. Box 5042, Concord, NC 28027.
