Lynn Badovinac Cor passed away Oct. 21, 2018 at St Vincent’s Healthcare in Billings following a brief illness.
Lynn Marie was the fifth child born to Nicholas and Darinka (Miloradovich) Badovinac in Butte on March 9, 1947. She joined one sister and three brothers. She attended Sacred Heart and St Patrick grade schools and graduated from Girls Central in 1965.
Lynn married Butch Cor in 1966, and subsequently moved to Seattle, then to Kent Washington, where her children, Ronnie and Michelle were raised. She and Butch were later divorced.
During her time on the West Coast, Lynn worked as a dispatcher for PIE Trucking and later Wright Business Graphics, as a sales representative. She made a lot of friends and thoroughly enjoyed her professional career.
Lynn was a loyal Seattle Seahawk and Mariner sports fan. She enjoyed playing the ponies at Long Acres with Grandma Darinka, uncle Sasho, brother Paul, friends and family and of course, her children. In later years she enjoyed her time on Queen Anne Hill and all her great friends at Targey’s.
Lynn returned to Butte in 2015 to be closer to her family. Lynn and grandson, Tanner Burt enjoyed a very close relationship.
Michelle and Lynn shared a special bond and friendship. Michelle became Lynn’s primary care provider, making sure Lynn got the medical attention and other life necessities she needed.
Lynn was a very caring, sharing, and wonderful person. She never complained about her health problems and was more concerned about the welfare of others. She never asked for anything and lived life to the fullest.
She enjoyed having an ale or two at the Goodwill Tavern with friends.
Lynn was preceded in death by parents, Nicholas and Darinka Badovinac; son, Ronnie Cor; and brother, Nicholas Badovinac.

Lynn was a genuine product of the East Side (Silver Bow Homes) of Butte. Her preference for dress was definitely jeans. All are encouraged to wear jeans … Lynn was a “FOREVER IN BLUE JEANS” gal.
