LYNN HELAINE ANDERSON age 60, cherished daughter of Joan (nee Kenney) and the late David Anderson; dearest sister of Jeannine Anderson-Spain (husband Michael Rosciszewski) and the late Lori and Rick Anderson; dear aunt of Lindsay and Jenna Spain and great-aunt of Mia Brown.
Lynn was born on February 3, 1960 in Cleveland, Ohio and passed away on June 21, 2020 a resident of University Heights for 15 years. Upon her graduation from Villa Angela in 1978, she went on to receive her undergraduate degree in Business Administration from John Carroll University, and her master’s in Labor Relations & Human Resources from Cleveland State University. Lynn worked as Director of Benefits and Compensation for 10 years for STERIS and previously at Cleveland State University for 11 years. When Lynn was able to take a moment away from her studies and work, she relished traveling. Her adventures included backpacking through Europe in her youth and a recent trip to Italy to marvel at the beautiful scenery, artworks and architecture. She also shared with us her delight with a recent trip to the Netherlands where she was fascinated by the simplicity and functionality of Scandinavian designs. Lynn took pleasure in the arts, and whether she was attending an orchestra concert, theater or observing pieces in the art museum, she was content. Lynn was an avid movie-goer and also enjoyed music of varying types be it Classical or Classic Rock. She took pride in working in her yard for the simple satisfaction of stepping back to see the beauty resulting from her nurturing. However, it was her nieces Lindsay and Jenna, and great niece Mia, that gave her the most enjoyment in life. Lynn was independent, strong, driven, compassionate, and generous. She will be dearly missed.
