With deep sorrow, we announce the passing of the cheerful TikTok content creator, Lynja, on January 1. She died at Riverview Medical Center in New Jersey. Additionally, her eldest officially conveyed her mother’s death information to The Times only last Friday.

As reported by The New York Times, Lynn received a diagnosis of throat cancer in 2019 and subsequently faced esophageal cancer in 2021. Sadly, she has now lost her battle against it, enduring it for almost five years.

And, just two days ago, Tim Davis, one of her children, posted a video on her social media accounts. Her son shared the heartbreaking news and showcased some of her old pictures and happy memories.

In the video, her son mentioned that his mother’s final moments were peaceful. And thankfully, the people she loved the most surrounded her during that time.

In the concluding part, he coined the term ‘the internet’s grandma‘ for his mom, capturing the warm and fun vibes the internet experienced. Grateful for how well the internet treated his mom, he expressed his thanks.


You’re the best mom I could have ever asked for but an even better friend. I love you mom ❤️
