Kristin Lyons

August 17, 1962 — December 7, 2020

Kristin Ann(Swenson) Lyons, 58, of Leominster, MA went home to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ after a brief illness on December 7, 2020.  Daughter of C. John Swenson, Jr. and Rosemary Swenson, Kristin grew up in Wenham, MA and graduated from Hamilton-Wenham Regional High School in 1981.  In 1985 she graduated from Fitchburg State College with a degree in Early Childhood Education.  In college she became active in the Intervarsity Christian Fellowship, where she met her husband James Lyons.  In 1986 they married and became active in Highland Baptist Church. Kristin and Jim centered their lives together working for the Lord.  It was a ministry of theirs to open their home for many years to families that needed help.  She worked in various preschools before changing her career as the church's secretary for 20 years.  She was leader of the Woman's Ministries and enjoyed singing in the choir.   Her passion was to help anyone in need, and did so with a beautiful smile, infectious laugh and a heart of gold.

Kristin is survived by her loving and devoted husband James Lyons of Leominster, mother Rosemary Swenson of Danvers, sister Karen Guay and husband Chris of Danvers, brother Carl Swenson and wife Elaine of Wenham, and many nieces, nephews and cousins.
