Lynn was a very personable person. She was practically a social guru, knowing everyone and never meeting a stranger. During her 35+ years at the downtown hotel, she was able to meet many famous and influential people including musicians, politicians, and even presidents. During her free time, she loved to help others and volunteer. She was a Friend of the St. Joseph County Library – volunteering her time at library functions and book sales, and she also volunteered at Notre Dame helping to lead Tour Guides. Lynn loved to read, journal, draw, doing word searches, and listening to an assortment of music. She also loved watching sports of any kind – especially Notre Dame Football and the Chicago Cubs. She finally got to fulfill a lifelong dream of attending a Chicago Cubs game in 2019. Above all, she loved her family dearly. She was always there to help whoever needed it. She was also very active in her children’s and grandchildren’s sporting and social events. For an ordinary woman, she was quite the extraordinary person. She will be deeply missed by all.
