I was very saddened to hear about Mrs. Lynch’s passing!! I had her as a teacher for 3 years, and she was easily one of my favorites! I have been an accountant for several years, and it all started with her Accounting 1 class. She will be greatly missed, I am deeply sorry for your loss!

Awe, Mrs Lynch. The world is a little less bright this morning, and My heart is broken today - You were always so good to me. I loved having you as my Accounting teacher (even tho I am extremely lousy at accounting and balancing a checkbook, ha!) and as my FBLA advisor. Our trip to Seven Springs for competition was a blast, we all crammed into your little Acura, and had the best time! I enjoyed visiting with you after HS graduation, and we had so many fun(ny) times with Rachel too! I still have the Baldwin ornament & candlesticks you gave me as a wedding gift, and they always make me think of you. I’m glad you were able to share in my special life moments like Dylan’s baby shower, and my wedding. I will never forget you Mrs Lynch, Thank you for all the memories, May you forever RIP. 💔😢💐
