Lynne A (Lavery) Stygles 77, formerly of Jericho Vermont passed at the McClure Miller Respite House. She joined her husband Kenny Stygles Sr on November 1, 2023.
Lynne and Kenny’s life on the farm was always full of adventure. They loved to spend time on the deck welcoming family, friends and animals where everyone was assured a fun time with lots of love and laughter, where we would not be surprised to see a Jersey calf keeping warm next to the woodstove, a couple of chickens strutting through and (the rooster) as well as all of the dogs.
Lynne was an accomplished horsewoman, a teaching member of the 4-H horse program at Contentment Farm, she barrel raced in Gymkantas, as well as riding her horse Petter from Vermont to Valley Forge, Pennsylvania as an Outrider for the Vermont Wagon Train Team , while joining with the other Wagon Train Teams from all of the 50 states, in celebration of our nation’s Bi- Centennial Birthday, where President Gerald Ford presided over the ceremony at Valley Forge.
Lynne was an early riser, she was never one to “let grass grow beneath her feet”, When things needed to get done, rest assured they got done.
She was kind, loving, strong and fearless. She loved everyone with her whole heart and was loved and admired by all who had the pleasure to know her and meet her. She maintained her lifelong friendships with her childhood friends, Marsha Baldwin, Olive Gilmond, Martha (Dude) Centabar and Phyllis Ritchie Earborn, Christine (Denny) Lowell, Mike (Janet) Lavery, Emory (Marie) Lavery, as well as treasure trove of others throughout her life.
Lynne is survived by her, Father in-law, Ed Stygles, Daughter, Bonny Rocheleau, Son, Greg Lavery (Michelle), Stepsons, Kenny Stygles Jr (Darla), Dylan Stygles (Alanna) Grandchildren, Tori Rocheleau, Jeff Rocheleau, Jessica Mc Niel, Joshua Rocheleau, Sommer Lathrop, Daniel Lavery, Abby and Madelene Stygles and 8 great Grandchildren

May we all be inspired to live life as she showed us how.
There will be no funeral service per Lynne’s wishes. There will be a memorial gathering celebrating hers and Kenny’s, love of life, friends and family, at a later date.
