To all of Lynn's family: My memories of Lynn go back many years, to the time in the late 1970's when I was on the Board for Tri-County WomenStrength, and Lynn worked there. The agency was much smaller then, operating on a shoestring, and often just a step or two ahead of its creditors. Lynn was a tireless worker. Over the years, I had contact with Lynn on many occasions, and for many reasons. What I will always remember about her was her love for, and commitment to, her children and grandchildren. She was a zealous fighter and advocate for them in all my memories of her. She was willing to sacrifice and fight for whatever she thought was in a child's or a grandchild's best interests. I hope that all of you will always carry that memory and that love in your heart. Best wishes.

I am so sorry to hear of Lynn's passing. Wow, our families go way, way, way back!!! I ran into Lynn several times over the years, and we would chat and get caught up on everything. She was a sweetheart, and will surely be missed by all. My sympathy to the entire family.

We've met Lynn a couple times in the past, but it was not until we volunteered and worked with her at 'Santa for Seniors' at the Neighborhood House did we get to know her better. She was a lot of fun, and we enjoyed getting to know her. We were saddened to learn of her passing. Our deepest sympathy is with you all.
