Lynn Yamada Davis, a TikTok creator who brought joy to millions of people with her zany style and cooking tips on her account, Cooking With Lynja, died on Jan. 1 at Riverview Medical Center in New Jersey. She was 67 and lived in Holmdel, N.J.
The cause was esophageal cancer, said her daughter Hannah Mariko Shofet.
Ms. Davis began creating the wholesome Cooking With Lynja videos in 2020 with her youngest child, Tim Davis, to help keep up his cinematography skills during the pandemic lockdown.
Her social media accounts have remained active after her death, because she had asked him to post videos that had already been edited. One such video shows the two of them looking for truffles in Italy.
“My mom was like my partner in crime,” Mr. Davis, 27, who edited the TikTok account, said in an interview on Thursday.
Something else she requested, Mr. Davis said, was that he post a few older videos that they had made together about a decade ago.
