She graduated from Canton High School in 1952 and then from East Stroudsburg State Teachers College with a BS in Physical Education. From there Lynne went on to teach special needs children how to swim, a difficult yet rewarding job.
In 1956 Lynne married Ted Hertel of Ralston, Pa., and for the next 20 years they raised three sons in Big Flats N.Y. In the late 1980s Lynne moved back to Canton Pa. to work the apple orchard with her father. She built a life for herself caring for the people and the land she loved.
Lynne is survived by her beloved sons, Benjamin (Hannah) Hertel, Howard (Johanna) Hertel, and Theodore (TJ) Hertel, granddaughters Cassandra Hertel, Katie Lang Robinson, and Charlotte Hertel, a great grandson, Braedyn Livingood, sisters Nancy Williammee, Virginia Angradi and Susan Schiess and many cousins, nieces and nephews.
A private burial will be held at the convenience of the family in the East Canton Cemetery. Pepper Funeral Home and Cremation Facility in Canton is assisting the family with arrangements.
