I am so sorry to learn of Lynne's death. She was such a pleasant person to be around - always with a smile and something positive to say. She gave 110% to whatever she did. I know her life impacted all those she helped at the Northwestern Workshop, later NW Works. Sure she has left a void in their hearts. She was a good person, a true team player, a creative soul and a delight to have known. She will be missed. May her memory be eternal! The Dawkins Family sends their deepest sympathies to Morgan and her entire family.

Dear Morgan, I was so very sad to learn of your Mom's death. She was such a dear friend for so long and such an integral part of Northwestern Workshop. She had a way and love for even the most challenging among us. We always got warm comments about her from caring family members. She was a joy, always with a smile and those beautiful blue eyes! The last time I saw you, I think, was when you stayed with my grandson Andrew at the Greek church during the wedding. Andrew is now married himself! I would love to know what you are doing now and how life is treating you. If you get my email address from this, please get in touch. Dear Morgan, I was so very saddened to hear of your Mom's death. Lynne was a very dear friend to me for so many years and she was an integral part of the Northwester Workshop. She had a way with and love for our most challenging people. She had great patience and understanding. She was a joy and we got many comments about her from grateful family members. Lynne was always happy, smiling and had those beautiful blue eyes! I hope you can get my email address from this as I would love to hear from you. Where are you? What are you doing? The last time I saw you was when you stayed with my grandson Andrew at the Greek church for the wedding. Andrew is married himself now! Please tell your Dad I am thinking about him, too. Let me hear from you, Morgan, and sending you my deepest sympathy. I will always remember "Lynnie Poo". Susan Dawkins Ireland (aka Mumsey, as Lynne called me!) t

Lynn was the most wonderful person who I know. She was always caring for everyone she met. She will be missed.
Ann, John, & Lisa Copeland left a message on March 28, 2016:
Lynne was very special to us. She was a supervisor/advocate for Lisa (and many others) at NW Works for many years. Lynne was a caretaker to Lisa in our home as well as during many outings, socials, and Bayliss family gatherings. There was no place that Lynne went that Lisa was not welcome to be there. We are thankful for and will remember the many good times. Lynne was a caring friend to many; she will be missed.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

I'm so sorry to hear about Lynne's passing. She was such a loving soul and made my daughter's (Courtney Lentz) day at NW Works. Her sense of humor and caring will be missed so much.
