It is with a heavy heart that we say goodbye to Lynn M. Pedraza. Born June 28, 1956, she left this world all too soon on October 12, 2020. Lynn battled Alzheimer’s Disease in her last few years.

She is survived by her many children; Alexandra, Geovanny, Jennifer, Pauline, Sarah, Lucas, Quincy, Rachel, Melody, and Joey.

Born in New York City, Lynn moved to Satellite Beach, Florida as a child. She called Florida her home for many years, graduating from the University of South Florida, before moving back to New York and later, to New Mexico. She was one of the first in her family to graduate high school and continued her education throughout her life. One of Lynn’s greatest accomplishments was completing her PhD from the University of South Florida in 2009. She dedicated her life to helping children and advancing research and resources for children in education, foster care, and mental health. Lynn was a pillar of her community and will be greatly missed by her family and friends. “If ever there is a tomorrow when we’re not together…there is something you must always remember: You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think, but the most important thing is, even if we’re apart…I’ll always be with you” - A. A. Milne, Winnie the Pooh
We will be hosting a virtual memorial service on Sunday, October 18th at 4 pm MT to honor Lynn’s memory.
