Lynette shared a love of volkssporting with many people. I first met Lynette in the late 80s. We missed her when she moved away from Maryland, but made contact again before the convention in Montana and at the convention. She will be sorely missed by all.

I met Lynette at the AVA Convention last summer. She was quite the hostess and will be missed by the volksporting community. My condolences for your loss.

I met Lynette years ago in Maryland at a Volksmarch. She was so kind to my boys, and to all of our family. She hired me to teach a course at St. Agnes. We stayed in touch for years, after she moved to Colorado Springs. I am so sorry for your loss. I know how much she will be missed by all.

Lynette was one of THE GROUP here in Point Place (Toledo Ohio) during Grade School at St. John's. Then Lynette and THE GROUP moved on to Central Catholic High School. The Greatest Memories will keep her with us. She IS there waiting. She will work to have HIM lead us to her and to share an Eternity there.

We want to express our most heartfelt sympathy. When we first heard the sad news, we were in shock and disbelief. It is difficult to accept that she is not here on earth anymore. We first met Lynette during a Volksmarch in Colorado. Immediately we were drawn to her by her vibrant personality and adventurous spirit. Over the years, we have hiked many trails together and shared good conversations along the way. We are very grateful to have so many wonderful memories of the times we have spent together.
We will miss you, Lynette! Gone bet never forgotten!
Until we meet again….

I knew Lynette from the book group she had been the leader of for many years. I was really pleased to have found such a nice group of women who love reading as much as I do. Lynette did a bang-up job as the "chief" of our group, always organized and enthusiastic about our time together.
Although I only knew Lynette a short time, I am so very glad I did. She was always encouraging, hospitable, welcoming, positive and just plain fun to be around. Her departure from this world was unexpected and lots of us will miss her very much.

I am sure that anyone who ever met Lynette loved the person she was. She was so full of life, laughter, love and joy. We went to a concert a month ago and caught up on our lives and family. No matter how long it had been since we saw each other, we could always just pick up and carry on. Our community will miss her generous spirit, her sense of exploration and her ability to make everyone she met her friend. Go in peace my friend. See you on the other side. With love, Suzi

Condolences to Lynette's family. I'm saddened and was shocked to read the news. Lynette was a lovely person, warm and always smiling. I met her through volksmarching and enjoyed working the volunteer tables with her when she lived in or visited Maryland. Right now, she's probably setting up a Year Round Event with a start point at the Pearly Gates.

You started volunteering at the play group that, Vashti, my 1 year old attends. You instantaneously became friends with her. Her face would light up as soon as she would see you. You would pull out a chair for her and she would sit right next to you. Together you would make crafts and sing songs. You told me that you looked forward to your Friday mornings because you got to see her and how you thought she was one of the sweetest babies you had ever had the pleasure of knowing. We would have long conversations about our families, dance and theater. We laughed about our CD collections in a bluetooth world. I will miss you Lynette. The second I met you, I knew that we were going to be friends. I will miss you kindness, your sweet smile and your honest advice. I know Vashti has an angel watching over her. Thank you for touching my heart. Thank you for loving my daughter.

I'll miss your voice on the phone, talking to me about the next adventure you had planned ... I'll miss trying to keep up with you on the trail ... I'll miss the enthusiasm and gusto you brought to every occasion. I hadn't had time to walk with you on Saturday mornings in a while, and I kept thinking I'd ask you to delete me from your mailing list. But then, I'd think, "No, I want to see what you're up to this week." Now, I wish I'd taken advantage of every opportunity you offered. But I always knew you'd warmly welcome me back.

What a vibrant, amazing lady !! Lynette knew everyone's name every week I had the pleasure of joining her Saturday walking group....and that is quite the feat seeing as there are over a 100 fellow walkers on her email list.
Always smiles and happiness.... She was extremely proud of those granddaughters back East...
Her passion was Mother Nature and being active with varying age groups, sharing her stories with each of us. Heaven, open your doors to the perky lady with the walking stick and the welcoming smile....wrap your arms around her and let her know we will miss her dearly ! !
God's Blessings and comfort to her family,
We Loved her too,
