Lynne Meinhold, Custodian

Lynn was born in Queens, New York and moved with her husband to Broward County, Florida in 1969.  They moved to Ormond Beach in 1987.  Lynn is now a widow with two adult children and a heavenly grandson and two granddaughters.

“We found Faith Lutheran Church to be such a friendly church and became members right after moving here.  Our children were confirmed at Faith Lutheran, our daughter married here, and our grandchildren were baptized here.  I have spent most of my life working with children, from teaching at church preschools, to being a Paraprofessional at Tomoka Elementary School, to now a Substitute Teacher.  My husband and I started cleaning the church over 20 years ago, and at various times, all of our family helped out.  By taking care of God’s house, a clean and welcoming facility is inviting to members and visitors to come in and worship.”
