Deborah Lynn Mintz


Deborah Lynn Mintz, age 60, of Wilmington, N.C. died Wednesday April 4th, 2018 at her home. Lynn was born in Raleigh, N.C on September 19, 1957 to John Wesley Boles Sr. and Geraldine Phelps Boles.

She is survived by her two children, Cassidy Lynn Mintz and Dylan Foster Mintz; her mother, Geraldine Boles; siblings, Steve Boles and his wife Joanne, Sharon Boles Allred and her husband Gary, and Johnny Boles and his wife Rosemary.

She attended Cary High School and received her degree in Nursing from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington. She then went on to become a home care nurse which exemplified her passion for caring for others.

Lynn was a lover of the water and sun. Any time spent outdoors made her happy. Working in her yard, planting flowers and making her home warm and inviting was very important to her. She loved her two wonderful children and spending quality time with her family in Raleigh. She attended Global River Church for many years and sought out to live a spiritually enriched life. She will be greatly missed by all of her family and friends.

The service for Lynn will be held on Sunday April 8, 2018 at 2:00PM at the Wilmington Funeral and Chapel 1535 S. 41st Street Wilmington, NC 28403.  Friends are invited to visit with the family after the services in the vestibule of the chapel.

    My heart felt condolences go out to you Cassidy and Dylan. Your Mom cared deeply for others and that love can only come from God. She loved the Lord and she is now with Him. The entire family at Seapath send our sincere sympathy.

    My heart was broken when I heard of Lynn’s passing. My deepest sympathy to Cassidy and Dylan, your Mother loved you dearly. To her Mother and siblings my deepest condolences. I love Lynn dearly even though we were out of touch the last few years, she holds a special place in my heart. I have so many happy memories of her at the beach, living in that old farmhouse freezing in the winter and spending time with her family. You welcomed me into your home because I was her friend and made me feel welcomed. She loved you all so much, family was very important to her. I just found out about her passing on Saturday. I will try to make it to the funeral to pay my respects and see you all. If I don’t make it, I will be there in spirit. Love to you all.
