Lynn was born in Newport News, and graduated from Menchville High School. She attended Virginia Tech and later graduated from Christopher Newport University with a degree in Psychology. Lynn worked for the Newport News and Hampton school systems, and had a particular passion for special needs and autistic students. Lynn's beautiful smile and enthusiasm for life were infectious, and left a strong impression on all who knew her. She really loved attending sporting events, especially when her favorite teams, the Redskins or Hokies, were playing.
Lynn is survived by her mother, Susan Adams; daughter, Stephanie Butch; grandson, Xander Bulldis; brothers, Larry Adams (wife, Beth) and Richard Adams (wife, Kathy); uncle, Earl Adams; aunt, Edith Gaughan; and many cousins, nieces and nephews. Lynn will be dearly missed by her close group of friends, "Her Village", including Nat, Marc, Steph, Dan, Sarah, Julie Ann, Gregg, Kathryn and the rest of Lynn's Little Farmers who provided support as she fought the disease.
Lynn's family and friends would like to extend a special thanks to the people at BrightStar and Sentara Hospice unit for the love they showed and the wonderful care they provided for Lynn.
A celebration of life and tribute service, hosted by Lynn's Little Farmers, will be held at Grandview Beach at 2 p.m. on April 21. As a tribute to Lynn, attendees are asked to wear something that represents the teams she loved, the Redskins or Hokies; or if you have one, your Lynn's Little Farmers shirt.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the ALS Association, DC/MD/VA Chapter, 7507 Standish Place, Rockville, MD 20855 in the hope that someday someone will find a cure for this horrible disease that took our Lynn so early.
