Lynne was always there ready to help plan our class reunions.  She was a friend and a wonderful person with a big heart. I miss her and I know everyone will as well.  RIP Love, Martha Egdorf Pegueros

Lynne was one of the kindest people I've ever been priviledged to know.  She was always there with an open heart and hand to anyone in need.  She was funny and smart....truly one of the loveliest people in the world.

Echoing the same.  Lynne was so nice to everyone, all the time.  Never fake - she was the real deal: smart, genuine and admirable.  Damn cancer.

I had the privilege of working for Lynne for the last 3 years.  Like others said, she was so very kind, generous, smart, self-sacrificing, always pleasant and caring.  She made a difference in a lot of people's lives.  I miss her!!

First grade through sixth grade at Bryson Avenue Elementary, Seventh through ninth at the junior high, and tenth through twelfth at South Gate High. We knew she was one of the special people. I don't think I ever saw her frown or get angry. At Bryson Lynne and I ate lunch together a few times but that ended the day Russ Daly threw a rotten banana at me. We were supposed to have a dance class after lunch, but Lynne told me I smelled "really bad" and moved on to somebody who didn't stink.

We never really socialized, but we were all a part of the classroom family for twelve years. Some of us longer.

I was saddened when I heard we'd lost her, and mourned her death, as I have for other classmates we've lost, but the truth is we haven't really lost any of them, including Lynne. She's still part of us, she's still a part of our lives and resides within us, close to the heart. We can call her and others up at will. Remembering her face, her laughter, her willingness to accept others for who they were. See? There she is now, eyes still sparkling with her smile. Hold her close to you. She may be waiting to see you again. Peace to you all.

So sorry to hear of Lynn's passing. You could always cont on her and seeing that smile brought sunshine where ever she went.

I'm so sorry to hear of Lynn's passing.  She was always a nice girl - always friendly.
