Lynn loved her Balfour Baptist Church, and really loved the caring people. Lynn gave a lot of her life to help others, as a CNA2 in nursing homes, Chatham and Randolph Hospitals, an I.S.S. Teacher at Bonlee Elementary School, and as a substitute teacher for Randolph County Schools. It was at SWRMS she was named “Purple Lady.”
She loved her family and will be missed by each of them, until we meet again.
