Lynda Green 11/7/47- 2/24/10

Hello bloggers.  I am not completely sure how this works but I am Courtney, Lynda's daughter.  I logged on to her blog to write this post to inform any followers or readers that my Mom, Lynda, passed away very suddenly this past Wednesday.  We held lovely services in Alfred, Maine for her on Saturday, Feb. 27.  Her memories will live on and anyone is welcome to share any thoughts or memories or stories you may have had of her.  If anyone would like to make a donation in her name, we are asking to please donate a children's book to a public school or library in her name or you may donate to a local women's shelter.  She was a strong advocate for children and teaching children to read and when she was working in administration in the schools, would often pop into a classroom to ask if she could read a story.  She also was a strong believer in equality for women and women's rights.  I have asked her closest friend, Karen, another avid quilter who actually was the force behind Mom getting started, to please finish any of Mom's unfinished projects- especially the wall hanging she made for my grandmother's 85th birthday.  My mom was the most amazing person I have ever known.  She will be missed.
