She was an active member of First Baptist North Spartanburg for over 30 years where she taught adult Sunday School classes and sang in the choir. Lynn was a graduate of Columbia College with a Bachelors Degree and the University of South Carolina with a Masters Degree in Education. She was a Special Educator for thirty-six years, serving the last thirty-one in Spartanburg County school districts. Upon her retirement she served as a volunteer and then staff member at Hope Remains Ranch. When she retired as staff, she served on Hope Remains board of directors and as a mentor. She loved teaching but her heart’s investment was to the ministry of Hope Remains Ranch. Her greatest joys were studying the Bible, helping people, especially teens, animals and outdoor activities.
