In Memoriam

It is with sad hearts that we share the passing of Dr. Lynn Peck, class of 1988, on May 30, 2017.
A go-fund-me site was established for Lynn:

According to the site, “Anyone that has met Lynn knows her lifelong passion for helping animals and holistic veterinary care. She has dedicated her life to the care and treatment of our furry friends. She is a talented doctor and an incredible friend.”

The memorial service is planned for Thursday, June 1 at 11 AM at Campus Church of Christ, 2720 SW 2nd Avenue, Gainesville, FL 32607. The burial will be on Friday, June 2 at 11AM at Prairie Creek Conservation Cemetery, 7204 SE County Road 234, Gainesville, FL 32641. All are welcome to both.
The family asks that in lieu of flowers, well wishers please make a donation in Lynn’s name to Heifer International.

Cards and acknowledgements may be sent to her niece, Lisa Peck, at 99 Woodlawn St., Hamden, CT 06517 or to her brother, Gene Peck, at 4260 S. Harbor Blvd, #A309, Oxnard, CA 93035.
