Lynn was an alumna of Hampton University and a graduate of Virginia Commonwealth University, with a degree in retail and sales management. During her college years, she worked as a fashion director, and also as a runway model for Miller & Rhoads, Thalheimer's and Sydney's. Upon graduation, Lynn worked for IBM for several months before pursuing her true passions as an aspiring writer and gifted abstract artist. She was also a founding member of the annual Richmond BLM Art Show. Her numerous artistic passions and talents were eclectic and varied, as those who knew her will attest. We would like to especially thank the staff of The Virginia Home for the compassionate care given to Lynn over the years of her residency. We would also like to thank you all for your kind gestures and expressions of sympathy. In lieu of flowers or food, please consider making a donation in Lynn's memory to The Virginia Home, 1101 Hampton St., Richmond, VA 23220.
