“I would rather die of passion than of boredom.” – Vincent van Gogh
Lynn lived her life with passion.
She felt blessed to have had an over 40-year career in Information Technology because she was good at it and enjoyed the challenges. She was proud to be a part of the “Y2K bug” fix (the disaster that never happened!). Changing from mainframe to PC during the last 12 years of her career, she made friends with fellow employees at OrthoCarolina that sustained her after retirement.
She enjoyed playing guitar, photography, and gardening. She is saddened that she did not have time to play more golf.
She loves her family and friends and would do anything she could to help someone in need.
I leave life without regret but rather with gratitude. I no longer have to deal with the daily dumbing down of America while watching this democratic republic slide into a fascist state.
