Ocala, Florida formerly of Mountaindale, N.Y.

Lynn Findling, age 71, was born in Monticello, N.Y. to Sidney and Sylvia (Goldress)

Rosenthal. She grew up in Mountaindale, N.Y. and graduated from Fallsburg Central

High School. Lynn married the love of her life, Harvey Findling and they continued

to live in Mountaindale with their sons Marc and Andrew. Lynn and Harvey just

recently celebrated their 52nd wedding anniversary.

After 38 years in business Lynn and Harvey retired to Florida. There she fought the

hard battle against cancer for 18 months and died on April 23, 2020. Lynn never

complained, just greeted each day with bravery and resolve. Always minimizing her

pain and discomfort because she was more concerned about the affect it would have on

Harvey.

Lynn and Harvey moved to Ocala, Florida in 2017. Even though they have lived in

Indigo East (OTOW) for a relatively short time before discovery of cancer, the

outpouring of well wishes and support from her friends during treatment is

heartwarming. Comments such as: A delight to be with, well loved, loving and sweet,

great smile, sweetest and most caring person I've ever known, fun to just sit and

talk to, wonderful sense of humor were just some of the things written on the

sympathy cards that were sent. Lynn was all of these things and more.

Family was the center of Lynn's life. She loved attending school activities,

sporting events, and beamed with pride over the achievements of her children and

grandchildren.

Married 52 years, in business together 38 years Lynn was the steadying and guiding

influence. Always uplifting and supportive. The best partner in life you could wish

for. No amount of time can even begin to heal the heartbreak felt upon losing her.

Lynn is predeceased by her parents Sidney and Sylvia (Goldress) Rosenthal, aunt

Sally Rosenthal, sister-in-law Joanne Findling (Alan). Lynn leaves behind her

husband Harvey, sons Marc (Carrie) and Andrew (Michelle), grandchildren Patrick,

Jillian, Bryson, Devon, and Kayleen, brothers-in-law Alan and Leonard (Gale),

nieces, nephews, cousins, and sister Helaine.

The family would like to express their thanks and gratitude to the doctors, nurses,

aids, and staff of River Garden Hebrew Home in Jacksonville, Florida who provided

Lynn with loving care. They were truly exceptional.

Funeral arrangements were done by Colonial Memorial Funeral Home, Woodbourne, N.Y.

on Sunday, April 26, 2020 at the Hebrew Congregation Cemetery of Mountaindale in

Glen Wild, N.Y. Due to national gathering restrictions and the public health risks

caused by the Covid-19 Pandemic there was no public funeral service.

A public Celebration of Life and Unveiling will be announced at a later date. A

small forest of trees has been donated by friends to be planted in Israel in Lynn's

memory. If you would like to add to that please do so thru the Jewish National Fund
