A Little About Lynn: 

Lynn was raised in Woodside, Queens with her twin sister Chris and younger brother Jimmy. She was awarded a full athletic scholarship to play basketball and softball at Long Island University in Brooklyn. She received a Bachelors of Science degree and studied to become a Physician Assistant. She spent the next 20 years as a Physician Assistant working on Riker’s Island. She met her husband Tony who was a Correction Officer. They were married for 19 years and had a son named Scott. Lynn devoted her life to help the less fortunate. She always found the best qualities in people and understood everyone had a story to tell. Lynn had an unbelievable sense of humor, willingness to give her love and energy to everyone who came in contact with her. Lynn was diagnosed with mucosal malignant melanoma (skin cancer from within the body). She battled gracefully and courageously for 3 ½ years. Lynn will be forever remembered. Her beautiful smile and loving heart is a true inspiration to all. Lynn would say always remember who you are and who you want to become, time can be short don’t leave anything undone. Her selflessness and beauty inside and out will be missed. May god protect her in heaven, like she protected all of us on Earth.
