FITZGERALD Lynn Ann Fitzgerald, 51, of Ponte Vedra Beach, FL, passed away on April 25, 2013. Lynn was an inspiration, a motivator, a mentor, and dedicated friend to everyone lucky enough to have met her. A loving wife and mother, Lynn raised three children with love, compassion, and gentle guidance. She counseled and mentored family, friends, and colleagues encouraging all who met her to do the best they can, to look past barriers, and to stretch themselves to reach new horizons. Lynn is survived by her husband of 27 years, Ronald Adams, sons Francis and Thomas Adams, and daughter Catherine Adams, all of Ponte Vedra Beach; her sisters Beth Giovine of Long Valley, NJ and Patrice Scheffler of West Palm Beach, FL; her brother Gerald Fitzgerald of Long Island, NY; ten nieces and nephews in NJ and FL; and dozens of beloved friends at PSS World Medical and elsewhere.
