LYN – aka Lynette
Born in Springs 1941 – one of a family of four.
Grew up in “van der Byl Park” and Matriculated from Vaal High School
Graduated from Johannesburg College of Education – specialising in Physical Education
Led the JCE drum majorettes in the RAG procession 1959-6!! Taught in van der Byl Park and later in Newcastle
Married to Gordon – 1963 and has 4 children – 2 girls and 2 boys. And now there are eight grandchildren.
I have been a Home Executive for the best part of my life thus giving us the privilege of a very close family.
I enjoy all the “home” things like sewing, knitting, cross stitch – and most importantly, if I must say so myself, give of myself willingly to many people and causes. I enjoy Women’s Institute and am qualified Judge. We both enjoy participating in the life of the Methodist Church.
Keen on Hockey, Golf and now love bowls.
I have always been a very committed supporter being both a Table Leg and later a Rotary Ann. I have willingly helped with any project that the club was involved in over a period of 52 years. I was recognised by the club with the award of a Paul Harris Fellowship for my dedicated support.
We both enjoy travelling, locally as well as abroad, having being privileged to visit many places and to have met so many people, especially through Rotary.
So, now in our “twilight years” we have again been allowed to welcome a new group of friends into our lives.
Should you ever have the good fortune to pass through Newcastle please come and visit us!
We have an interesting “Front Door” – it is never closed to our friends!
