  • To the family of Lynne:
    I just learned of her passing today. I was a high school classmate of Lynn’s at Haldane High in Cold Spring, NY. We shared a hall locker our junior and senior years….1975 and 1976. Lynne and I dated for a time and she was my date to our senior prom. I am shocked she is gone. I last saw her at our 40th reunion in 2016. I hope her wonderful smile and sense of humor will entertain everyone in Heaven!
    Rest In Peace my friend!

  • Lynne was a good friend of mine in high school. We were part of group of girls who raised hell (in harmless ways), had a LOT of fun, and cared about each other. I remember Lynne like it was yesterday . . . in awe of how she–being two years older than me–learned to drive her mom’s red Maverick with the standard shift on the column, up and down and around and around the windy, dirt roads around Cold Spring. Lynne was fun, and kind, and I will always hold these memories of her close. I’m deeply sad at the news of her passing and for her family’s loss.

  • My condolence’s go out to Lynne’s family. I am still in shock to hear of Lynne’s passing. I went to Haldane and Delhi with Lynne. She was a good friend, she was always uplifting and fun to be around. I have a lot of good memories. Rest in Peace Lynne, you will never be forgotten!

  • I’ve been thinking of you so much recently as I’ve been writing and reflecting on my years in Middletown, DE. You were my ‘same boat’ friend, my soccer mom friend, truly, you were so good at friendship. I will never forget how fun it was to be in your company and how down-to-earth and unconditionally accepting you were. I’m sorry we did not get one last meet up on the Bear walking path. I hope that wherever in the heavens you are, you get this letter and prayer and goodbye from me. Your friend, Eileen
