Lynn Paff-Connor was a beloved wife, mother, sister, aunt, and friend who passed away peacefully on Saturday, March 26, 2022. She was 69.
Lynn was born in New York, New York to Stanley and Joan Paff and raised in Levittown, PA. She was a 1970 graduate of Neshaminy High School and 1975 graduate of Duke University.
During her wide-ranging career, she worked for Whitman's Chocolates of Philadelphia, served as an educational administrator for the William Penn Centers in Morrisville and Fallsington, and was a passionate program coordinator and instructor for Welcoming The Stranger's ESL program throughout Bucks County. She helped hundreds of immigrants and refugees on the path to becoming fluent in English and earning their American citizenship.
Lynn was an ardent animal lover and often seen accompanied on her Morrisville walks by Rascal, the family's long-lived Jack Russel Terrier. Inside the home she could usually be found surrounded by her twin black cats, Scout and Shadow.
Lynn loved her family, education, and had a particular admiration for Lancaster County's beautiful countryside where she retired to with her family in the spring of 2021. She will be recalled most for her kind and gentle demeanor; always seeking to help others in any way that she could, a beautiful person inside and out.
Lynn will be remembered by her husband William J. Connor III, her sister Abby DeSantis (Paff), her son Jacob Connor and extended members of the Paff and Lawton families in New York, California, and Pennsylvania.
Friends and family of Lynn are invited to her celebration of life at Furman Home For Funerals, 59 W. Main Street, Leola, PA 17540 on Saturday April 2nd, 2022 from 10am-Noon.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Morrisville United Methodist, the sponsor location of many of her ESL lessons later in life and which previously housed the facilities of The William Penn Center (Morrisville). Additionally, donations can be made to Tracyspawsrescue.org, a dog shelter rescue organization Lynn contributed to.
May her memory be a blessing.
