May 21, 1947 - January 10, 2021
It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Lynda Leigh Letsch, cherished mother, grandmother, daughter, and sister on Sunday, January 10, 2021, at the age of 73. Lynda is survived by her parents, John and Venita Guenther; her children, Angela Walter, Erin (Brian) Dawson, and John (Molly) Letsch; her grandchildren, Bode and Caleb Dawson, Ella and Baby Boy Letsch; her sister, Dawn (Gary) McConnell; her aunt, Glenna Wekili; her niece, nephews and extended family and friends. Lynda was preceded in death by her beloved husband of 44 years, William Lane Letsch, her sister, Kim Clark, and her son-in-law, Andrew Walter. Lynda was born in Michigan on May 21, 1947. Lynda was a synchronized swimmer, cheerleader and the State Sweetheart for DeMolay Michigan. She attended Eastern Michigan University for a time before moving to Iran with extended family. Lynda became fluent in Farsi and taught English to Persian students. It was in Iran she met her late husband, Lane. After a brief courtship, Lynda and Lane were married and made their home in Maryland. Lynda was a devoted stay at home mother, a caring friend, and never met a stranger. Once her children were out of elementary school, Lynda returned to school for stenography and worked as a court reporter in Baltimore. Upon retirement, Lynda enjoyed spending time with her husband on their boat in the Chesapeake Bay and frequent trips to Hawaii. She was an accomplished artist and was most at peace when drawing, painting, or crafting. In her later years, Lynda’s greatest joys came from caring for her twin grandsons, cuddling her baby granddaughter, and the excitement of a new grandbaby on the way. Due to the pandemic, an outdoor celebration of life will take place at a later date. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation in Lynda’s memory to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (www.bcrf.org) or to Capital Caring, Philanthropy Department, 3180 Fairview Park Drive, Suite 500, Falls Church, VA 22042 (www.capitalcaring.org), 703-531-2380.
