The Passing of Lindy Lynch
September 1, 2019
Bennington Rotary and community members were saddened by the death of Lindy Lynch on August 3. Lindy was a vital member of our community. The list of her activities includes membership on many boards in Bennington and North Bennington. She was past president of the Bennington Chamber of Commerce and Chair of Events including the Garlic Fest. She was a past president of Rotary. Many events and organizations owe their success to Lindy. She was tireless in her work throughout the community whether in child care or business programs. She was a founding board member of WBTN radio station.
Lindy founded Country Corner Day Care and the Generations Care Center which was at the Veteran's Home. She was a past president of the Bennington Child Care Association. With her husband Kevin, she created Kevin's Restaurant in North Bennington.
Her courageous struggle with cancer over the past five years was an inspiration to many. The book Speed Bumps: Lindy Lynch's Journey Into Cancer chronicles her battle with the disease and offers hope to others.
Lindy will be much missed not only by her husband, her mother, her children and grandchildren, but by the many whose lives she touched through all she did for others.
