She was also well-known in the local dance community, where she enjoyed both contra and ballroom dancing.
Lynne was a dedicated gardener who grew armloads of both vegetables and flowers. She was a wonderful cook who loved to share homemade foods with all those around her.

She has three grandchildren: Aston and Zachary Woy and Ivo Lindner.
