Until her physical abilities limited her whereabouts to The Cove, at Goshen Greencroft, Lynette was a member and regular attendee of the Spirit of Faith Fellowship Church, in Goshen.
Lynette was a 1971 graduate of Northridge High School of Middlebury, IN and worked in various factories. Most notably she worked 20 years (plus) at Foamcraft, Inc., of Goshen, where she worked as a gluer responsible for the setup of orders in the fabricating department. Her supervisor along with a close friend at Foamcraft were most generous in providing her with guidance and assisted her in stepping into her next phase of life.
Lynette loved people and her cat, Abby. Until her physical abilities limited her environment to The Cove (where she was one of the first residents), she would attend family gatherings, where she thoroughly enjoyed bantering with her cousins. During her stay at The Cove, she participated in almost every activity afforded to the Residents. She was an avid Chicago Cubs fan, she recorded and kept detailed stats on all the players. She enjoyed working puzzles and playing Bingo where she could win chocolate candies. She also appreciated the local entertainers that graciously perform for the residents at the Cove.
Elkhart Cremation Services is entrusted with her care, interment will be at Grace Lawn Cemetery, Middlebury, IN with her parents and a celebration of life service for Lynette will be held in the spring of 2022. Her family requests that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to Goshen Home Care & Hospice or to Lighthouse Families First Autism Center.
