Lynne Margaret Hunter was born on March 19, 1963 in Binghamton NY and lived her early years in Ithaca, NY before finding her home in Florida. She enjoyed boating and spending time at the beach! She had many adventures in life and was blessed with a daughter, Melissa Margaret Simmons. Lynne is survived by her brother, John Hunter, sister Carol Engels, and uncle William Gredel. She was predeceased by her father, Malcolm Hunter and recently struggled with the passing of her mother, Eleanore Hunter this past March.

Lynne lived with physical pain and mental illness but recently found direction at First Community Congregational Church of Lehigh Acres where she had friends and a new passion for helping others. Lynne was also blessed with her loving canine companion Hope.

In loving memory of Lynne, in lieu of flowers, donations may be directed to either the First Community Congregational Church at 200 E. Leeland Heights Blvd., Lehigh Acres FL, 33936; or Service Dogs for America at servicedogsforamerica.org.

Her companion Hope was truly a blessing to Lynne in tough times. Lynne struggled with life and ultimately chose to be with her Father in heaven on July 26, 2017. She had a strong relationship with Christ and is now finally at rest and experiencing true peace. She will be laid to rest next to her father and mother at East Lawn Cemetery, Ithaca, NY on Wednesday, August 9th at 10:00am. Friends and family are welcome to attend.
