Lynne's wonderful soul entered the world on 12/15/46 in the Bronx. An incredible personality, she embodied generosity, kindness, with a splash of fierce feminism and sassiness to bring it all together. She was driven and intelligent, graduating from the High School of Fashion Industries, NYC at 16! Her rich career spanned 50+ years in downtown Syracuse, touching the lives (and fixing the hair!) of so many. Lynne was an avid gardener with an evident green thumb, bringing life and growth to every living thing she touched. This didn't stop with her plants, with many stray animals finding homes and rehabilitation at her door. She craved knowledge through life, with a book collection library might envy. She loved to generously support the environment and its animals, donating frequently to wildlife funds and animal rescues. Lynne will be missed deeply by her partner and friend in life, Bob Kyle, her son Jay Fasen, sister Joanne (George) Smith, nieces Wendy Laws, and Tracy Smith, as well as her 7 grandchildren and Bob's daughter Melissa Ovitt. There will be no services.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the CNY Cat Coalition. Lynne would encourage all to VOTE and respect the environment.
