Lynne Williams, a resident of the Town of Poughkeepsie for 50 years, died peacefully on July 26, 2019 at The Kaplan Family Hospice in Newburgh. She was 73 years old.

Lynne was born on July 20, 1946 in Lachine, Montreal, Quebec, Canada to the late John “Jack” and Dona Thompson.

She received her nursing degree from The Royal Victoria Hospital College of Nursing in Montreal in 1967.

On April 20, 1968 Lynne married Joseph Williams at The Resurrection of Our Lord Church in Lachine, Montreal, Quebec. Lynne received her citizenship to the United States in 1979 and was proud to call herself an American while still celebrating Canadian victories at every Olympics. She was proud to call both countries home.

After starting a family, Lynne began working for the Spackenkill School District as an assistant in the library at Martha Lawrence Elementary School. She moved to Orville A. Todd Middle School and worked as a Teacher’s Assistant until her retirement in 2005. During her time there she served as PTA President and received the Lifetime Membership Award for her efforts in the organization.

Lynne was predeceased by her husband Joseph Williams in 2005.

Survivors include her son, Barry Williams and his wife Christin of Vestal, NY; her daughter, Kelly Bosaz and her husband Nino of Poughkeepsie, NY; beloved grandchildren Samantha, Delaney, Joseph and Michael.

The family would like to thank the staff at The Kaplan Family Hospice for the compassion and kindness they displayed while caring for Lynne. Their extreme professionalism and love they shared was of great comfort to the family and is greatly appreciated.

The family will receive visitors Monday July 29, 2019, 4-7 PM at Wm. G. Miller & Son Funeral Home, Inc., 371 Hooker Ave, Poughkeepsie, NY 12603.

So sorry to hear of Lynn’s passing. I worked many years with her at Todd. Lynn always had a good word for the people she worked with. Always started the day with a smile. She was wonderful with the Todd students.
I’ll always remember her orange fingers from her snacking Cheetos.
She will be missed.

Barry and Kelly,

Your mom was the best! I worked with her at Todd and will always remember her infectious laugh and beautiful soul. She would speak to me about you both often, and was so full of pride. I am so sorry for your loss. - Walt White.
