Lynda Deems Vollmer Humphreys was born December 16, 1937 in Butler, Missouri to John Clyde and Elizabeth Surface Deems. She grew up in Butler and graduated from Butler High School in 1955. She continued her education at KU. After graduation she worked as an Executive Secretary for Sprint for many years. She would be united in marriage to John W. Vollmer, and to this union two girls were born. Lynda had a love for the shetland sheepdogs, and began breeding and showing them in 1974. She was a founding member of the Greater Kansas City Shetland Sheepdog Club and also served as club president. Her passion for showing dogs would take her all over the country, and prove to be very successful. Her daughters carry on the tradition today. Lynda was known to be “the life of the party”. She loved to entertain, especially by playing the piano, often playing every opportunity she could. Her out spoken personality, and never knowing a stranger, gave her the opportunity to make many friends over the years. She also loved to garden and was a member of the Johnson County Garden Club. Lynda never missed an alumni gathering with the Butler High School class of 55, often times she would be an integral part in the planning.

Lynda was preceded in death by her parents, husbands, John W. Vollmer and Frank Humphreys, brothers, Harley Deems, Lloyd Deems, and Lelan Deems, sisters, Helen Sweezy, Shirley Spears and Donna Post. She is survived by her daughters, Victoria and Jonna Vollmer both of Olathe, KS, grandson Justin Tucker also of Olathe, KS., sister Dixie Harper and her husband Theron, sisters-in-law, Gloria Deems and Bobbie Deems, as well as numerous nieces, nephews, and extended family members.
