Lyn started her career teaching elementary school before making Great Neck North her home while teaching TESL. She treated her students as if they were her own children. Remarkably she taught them how to speak English without the ability to speak any other language.

Lyn graduated from the University of California at Berkeley with a degree in Childhood Development and went on to get her Masters Degree in English.

Lyn’s teaching was not confined to the school system. She was an exceptional bridge player. Her love of bridge and teaching brought her to another career: teaching bridge. She was highly regarded within the bridge community.

An avid tennis player, Lyn enjoyed connecting racket to ball for most of her life until MS made it impossible for her to play any longer.

Lyn was a cultured woman that loved the fine arts and Broadway. She also enjoyed her outings with her “Red Hatter Club” and playing Mahjong any chance she could get.

In December of 2014 Lyn was stricken with Glioblastoma Grade IV, a very agressive brain cancer, that eventually took her from us while she slept comfortably.
