Lynn was a wonderful, bright, sensitive, caring, and articulate person who was a great friend and colleague. We knew each other or over 35 years. She cared about her family very deeply and treated her friends like family. Her memory will be a blessing to all who knew her and her soul will clearly rise up to Heaven. Our memories of Lynn will be a source of comfort to all who knew her.

Lynn guided me through challenges and opportunities in my work as a Jewish Federation executive director. Whenever I called on her I always felt her presence as a trusted, attentive, wise, gentle, reflective and supportive coach.

Always helping with a smile; wise, but never overbearing; a friend as well as a colleague; a helping hand when you needed one.
