RIP to Lindsey Vonn’s mom Lindy Lunn. She passed away over the weekend after a year-long battle with ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease.

Our thoughts and condolences are with Lunn’s family and friends.

Vonn posted a tribute to her mother in a social media post. Please read below.

“My sweet mother Lindy has lost her battle with ALS. She passed away peacefully as I held her hand, exactly one year after her diagnosis. I am so grateful for every moment I had with her but I am also thankful that she is no longer suffering and in peace. She was a shining light that will never fade and I will forever be inspired by her.

I wrote this in my memoir a year ago for my Mom and it is unfortunately fitting now…

“This book is dedicated to my mother. She is my inspiration not because of what she did for my skiing career, but how her perpetual positivity shaped me into the person I am on, and most importantly, off the slopes. Every adversity I have faced, I found perspective and inspiration from her. Throughout the many hardships in her life, they only made her stronger, kinder, and more humble. That type of grit is what shaped me since I was a child; whether I knew it then or not, I know it now.

Mom, I hope I am one day as tough as you are. I hope I will approach every day with as much energy and optimism as you do. I hope I will one day raise my kids to be as incredible as you are. I love you.”
