She was married on May 27th, 1967 to Donald J. Womer of Albany. Lynne worked for many years at the University of Albany. She enjoyed volunteering for The Community Hospice.
Lynne is survived by her loving husband of 53 years, Donald, and their two children Francine Amiot and Matt Womer (Lauren); cherished grandchildren Adam Amiot (Izabela) and Claire Amiot. She is also survived by her sister Sandra LaPerche (Edwin); brother-in-law Earl Womer (Jacqueline ), sister-in-law Mary Mazurkiewicz (the late John) and their families. She is also survived by many beloved life-long friends.
Her warm, welcoming way will always be remembered by all of those who came across her path in life. She had a beautiful smile, a kind, gentle soul and was quick to laugh. She enjoyed her friends and family immensely. She was generous of spirit and eager to assist those in need of a helping hand.
The family would like to thank Doctor Laura Pica, The Community Hospice, and dear friends, Nancy and Paul Doyle, and Joanne Meagher.
Due to current circumstances, a private service will be held at the convenience of the family. The family asks that memorials in Lynne’s name be made to the Joshua Mountain Ministries at 1071 Joshua Lane, Altamont, NY 12009, (518) 365-0164.
