  8. Remembering dear Lynne in the 25 years she worked at Nowra Family Support
    Service was to know that she changed the lives of hundreds of families , always giving unconditional love, care and support,both in their homes and in the self
    esteem, bereavement, adoption and other groups she facilitated at the centre.
    Lynne was so proud of the book she co-authored with Kerry “A Journey to Healing” for bereaved parents, originating from her crisis call work at the Hospital. Lynne was passionate about Purple Ribbon and other causes close to her
    Lynne’s effervesant personality, smile and laughter endeared her to
    everyone who knew her. Her passing has left a profound sense of loss. I feel
    fortunate to have journeyed with her and be sprinkled with her love, kindness
    and warmth. Au revoir, Lovely Lynne
