BARBARA ANNE LYNCH AGE: 45 HOPATCONG Barbara Anne Lynch, 45, of Hopatcong, passed away at home Wednesday, August 25, 2010, following a long illness. She was born in Las Vegas, Nevada. Barb, a fencer since high school, was honored with a lifetime membership to the USFA (United States Fencing Association) based on her long standing contribution to the sport. She was a former vice president of the USFA and was chair of the NJ division for over 10 years. She coached Morris Hills High school for 21 years and has received countless coaching awards in that tenure. Her legendary organizational skills led her be appointed as bout committee chair (the person who runs fencing events) for many, many national fencing tournaments and championships.
