Facebook Entry by Lynne's husband:

Dear fb friends of Lynne,

It is with a heavy heart that I notify you that my beloved wife of over 37 years passed peacefully on Tuesday, April the 14th. She spent her last days surrounded by our sons and the Sonoran Foothills mountain views that she loved so much. As many of you know Lynne was a very private person. But this is the only way to communicate with many of her friends all over the country. Lynne was diagnosed with an inoperable brain cancer in the beginning of September. Undergoing the best and most aggressive treatment available allowed her a few more months. I cared for my wife under Hospice protocol so that she could hear the Quail calling and the Gila woodpeckers drumming on the roof and screeching at all the other birds and critters outside our open bedroom window and door. Having our house in AZ enabled us to avoid the extremely severe Winter weather in Buffalo. We planned on retiring here in AZ and indeed Lynne did.

I will be bringing my wife home to Buffalo for interment. We are planning a celebration of her life and her life's work but details have not been finalized. I will post additional information when available.
