Lynn taught PE in CA, TX, and CO. After retirement, she was a volunteer teacher for 13 years, teaching special reading to elementary students in the Littleton Public Schools district. Beyond teaching, she loved outdoor activities including biking, hiking, camping, golfing, and her favorite, skiing.
Lynn also loved to travel. She took each of her 6 grandchildren on a Road Scholar trip to different locations around the US. She and Paul loved their 2 week bicycle adventures in Austria and Holland. She also enjoyed other international trips to England, Sweden, Italy, Germany, France, and Belgium.
Most of all, she loved being called "grandma". She attended every activity her grandchildren were involved in when she could, and tried to instill in them her love for the outdoors.
