Lynda Maria (Roth) Gehrig died November 19, 2020 in her home after a long battle with cancer. She was born February 10, 1949 in Baltimore, Maryland to Elmer and Helena (Von Boeren) Roth. She was the devoted wife of Robert "Bob" Gehrig for 52 years. She is also survived by her daughters, Michelle (Steven) Lipka and Lori (Randy) Reitenauer. And she was loving Nanny to her grandchildren Emily Lipka, Evan Lipka, and Max Reitenauer.

She was preceded in death by her beloved dog, Dutch.

Lynda was a Baltimore City Crossing Guard for 19 years in the Belair-Edison Community, where she was known as Mrs. Lynn to countless children. She left to care of her grandchildren and to serve as bookkeeper for her family business, Arcade Press, from which she retired in 2016. Lynda was also PTA President of her children's elementary and high schools for several years.

Lynn was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 50 and was in remission until Fall 2017, when she was diagnosed with uterine cancer and suffered through numerous complications for the last 3 years of her life.

My dear friend Lynda. We met in junior high and became great friends. Crazy fun times through junior and senior high school - you me and Gayle, the three amigos. You were always a positive, fun loving, smart, beautiful woman. I can close my eyes and see you laughing so hard at stupid things we would say or do. Your laugh was infectious. You have been a wonderful, loving, dedicated wife, mother, sister and grandmother. You will be greatly missed every day. I know your family has years of awesome memories that will keep you close in their hearts. My thoughts and prayers to you Bob, your daughters and all of your family. With much affection, Debbie
