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.”
