…passed away peacefully at NYP Hudson Valley Hospital on May 11, 2020. Lynne was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother and friend.

Lynne was a life-long caregiver for all those who came into her life. She volunteered at her favorite organization the Graymoor Friars of Atonement in Garrison, NY. She was inspired by those at Graymoor and found great fulfillment supporting their important work. Lynne introduced herself to the Friars of the Atonement several years ago and had become the volunteer extraordinaire. She was very involved in assisting the friars with many of their Benefactor Appreciation Days fundraisers in support of their ministries and many clerical activities. Lynne was known for her kindness, generosity, concern and willingness to help in whatever needed to be done. She became instrumental in recruiting other volunteers and in spreading the word about Friar’s Founder, the Servant of God, Fr. Paul Wattson, SA, and the Friars and their ministries. She helped to feed the poor, clothe the naked, visited the sick, and was a friend to all those in need. She often referred to those with whom she worked with as “angels” while in fact she herself was one. She is sadly missed but now shares eternal joy.
Lynne often said she and Ben were blessed with support from a large community of friends in Cold Spring, NY. Lynne cherished life and was grateful for her family and opportunities to travel including, trips to China, Europe, Argentina, Turkey, Gua
