Lynne Anne Perrin, of Grand Rapids, passed away on July 8, 2018 at the age of 75. Lynne was the daughter of the late Howard and Dorothy Perrin. She is survived by her daughter, Robin Perrin, and her sister, Nancy Winkler. Lynne graduated from Ottawa Hills High School and Michigan State University, earning her degree in Elementary and Deaf Education. She taught at Shawnee Park Oral School for the Deaf, and later was part of the team that started the Ken-O-Sha Infant Parent Program, providing Early Intervention services to children of Kent County and their families. Lynne was a patient, wise and creative teacher and was a mentor to many of her colleagues through the years. She retired from GRPS in 2006 and the program she helped start remains as her legacy today. Lynne was an active and lifelong member of Grace Episcopal Church, where she served on the vestry and exercised a significant role as Senior Warden. Through her leadership, the parish successfully completed a capital gifts campaign, and Lynne’s many contributions to Grace were recognized when she was honored and presented with the Cross of Grace. Lynne was an active supporter of Special Olympics, a volunteer at Clark Retirement Community, and served on the board of Directors of various non-profit organizations that serve the disabled community. In her spare time, Lynne enjoyed going to Symphony Pops concerts, as well as Civic and Circle Theater performances. She enjoyed crafts and needlework and passed her love of counted cross-stitch down to her daughter, Robin. Many have been blessed by their beautiful and intricate creations. Lynne was a gifted hostess and enjoyed entertaining friends and colleagues in her home, especially during the holidays. Lynne will be remembered as a loving mother and a true and faithful friend; she will be missed. Her memorial service will be held on Friday, July 20 at 11 AM at Grace Episcopal Church, 1815 Hall Street SE where friends may visit together from 10 AM until the service. In lieu of flowers, Lynne would be honored by memorial contributions to the Ken-O-Sha Home Community Program or Grace Episcopal Church.
