Lynn was a consummate reader, collecting over 10,000 books with an insatiable curiosity and wide range of interests. A highly accomplished cook, she loved to share her love of cooking, entertaining and illustrating through her volunteer efforts with multiple local organizations, such as the Dryden Ensemble
, a baroque chamber music ensemble, and Bucks Beautiful
, which honored her with the Laurel Award. Her watercolors of orchids were displayed at the Philadelphia Flower Show. She played the piano and loved a wide range of music, but her passion was developing the illustrations and programs for the Dryden Ensemble, which performs in Doylestown and Princeton. She loved to knit, which she found to be very relaxing. She studied knitting from all over the world and amassed rare wools from her travels. Friends and family were treated to many socks, hats, scarves, and sweaters, which they treasure as true gifts of love.
Lynn and her husband enjoyed traveling to Japan, Germany, Chile, and Switzerland to see their international daughters. They especially loved train travel, and in recent years, explored around the US and Canada.
She is survived by her husband, six exchange student daughters with their families and children, with whom they shared an enduring bond, her husband’s family and niece, her brother Richard Reynolds of Colorado and his family, and countless friends who became a large extended family.
A memorial service will be planned this fall in their Doylestown garden. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the Dryden Ensemble, P.O. Box 1288, Princeton, NJ 08542 or online at drydenensemble.org
