Lynne was the first-born child of Paul and Irma Easterbrook.  She was born in Idaho and grew up in McCall, Bear Valley, and Emmett. She attended the U of I for a while, then transferred and earned a teaching degree from Boise College. She did her student teaching in McCall and then went to Flagstaff, AZ, with her son, Ted, where she received a Masters Degree in English.

Her work career included, but was not limited to, technical writing for Lear Jet, the government in Cheyenne Mountain, NIFSC, and the BLM.
She also wrote a book with Harry Combs about the Wright Brothers. 

Oh, yes, also as a young adult, she waited tables at Cougar Mountain Lodge and the Chicken Broaster in Lewiston. And she taught accordion at a music store in Payette. 

Lynne enjoyed good cars. In high school, she liked to drive her white Corvair and "roar" around town. Mom nicknamed her car "Roar-ee."

Her hobbies included watercolor and plein air painting, growing bonsai, a little crocheting, and a lot of fantastic, difficult knitting.
She enjoyed animals --- especially her horses and her pretty puppies.

Her last stop was to live on the Boise Bench and get to enjoy all the fun stuff Boise has to offer.
She and I especially enjoyed different art events in the valley.  She was a loyal piano recital attendee as well as cheering me and the piano gang when we played at Festival of Trees.

She had a generous spirit and helped many different people throughout her life. During the COVID lockdown, she sent jokes to friends and family every day to keep us smiling in tough times.

Sadly, she got brain cancer, glioblastoma multiforme. She will be missed by all who knew her.
