Dorothy Lynn was a valued member of our Eastern Star Chapter in Henderson, serving as our Worthy Matron (President) two different times. It was our pleasure to visit her many times during this pandemic time. We brought her homemade soup and baked items which she seemed to appreciate. Her home was always 'neat as a pin' and decorated to match the season. It was delightful visiting with her and she will be missed.
