Abney "Dell" Flynn, age 96 of Shreveport, passed away Wednesday May 25, 2022 at her home. She was born October 9, 1925 in Shreveport to Abney D. and Della (Donaldson) Scanland.
Dell loved cooking and collecting recipes. She also loved to fish when she was younger. Her grandfather, William Henry Scanland was an orphan at age 17, but on July 1, 1859 managed to start the Bossier Banner Progress Newspaper at that young age. This paper would eventually become the Bossier Press Tribune as we know it today.
Mrs. Flynn was preceded in death by her parents, and a daughter Amy Flynn.
Left to treasure her memory are three children, Homer Flynn III, Kevin Flynn, and Christy Flynn.
