I am so sorry to know of the passing of dear Lynn. In recent years I was not in touch with Lynn, as I had left NEPA. I have known Lynn since grade school. Lynn was always happy, smiling, talented,- just a wonderful person to be around and to have as your friend. In recent years I had not been in touch, yet Lynn reached out to me, through others, and prayed for my brother as he was battling bladder cancer. Lynn is an Angel. My thoughts and prayers to Griffy, Leslie, and all Lynn's family.

About seven years ago, Dan and I met Lynn when our development was in it's early stages. Though we had never met her previously, we found we had many friends in common. We will fondly remember our trips to Colarouso's and many visits with Lynn at both of our homes. We will dearly miss her and her wonderful personality.Dan and Jane Cuozzo

For several years it was our pleasure to live next door to Lynn. She was not just a neighbor but a good friend as well. Her passing will definitely leave a void in our development. She will always be remembered as a kind and generous person. We will miss her greatly.Harry Dickinson and Robert Gallagher

Pastor Lynn shared her faith, insight, knowledge and joy with us at Countryside and we all benefited from knowing her. She was surely a good and faithful servant of our Lord!
