Lynne Dianne Stuart

Lynne Dianne Stuart died Saturday, May 3, 2008, in Torrance, Calif., at the Little Company of Mary Hospital. Lyndy, as she was known to her friends, lived in the Roaring Fork Valley from the mid-1970s until 1987, when she moved to Redondo Beach, Calif.

While in Aspen, she worked for The Mountain Lid, and then opened a plant store and plant-care business in Aspen called Interior Gardens. She also worked as an accountant and bookkeeper. She loved horticulture and anything to do with plants, and she dearly loved her cats. She had the nimble mind of a voracious reader and a mirthful, comic imagination. Lyndy lived life her way ” a bright, laughing and kind way ” and was a dear and loyal friend. She will be remembered by her many friends as generous, caring and funny.

Lyndy is survived by her mother, Marylynn Stuart of Basking Ridge, N.J., by her sister, Karen Nixon and by her beloved nephew, Donald Ross.

Lyndy died of a progressive illness, but true to her character, she did not tell even her mother that her condition might be serious until just before she passed away.

Marylynn said, “She was a wonderful daughter and would never do anything to make her mother worry.”

There will be no formal service. Later this summer her mother will scatter Lyndy’s remains at the family cabin in the woods of New Jersey by a creek that runs close to the cabin. She will be dearly missed by all who knew her. Those wishing to memorialize her passing are advised to buy yourself a grand and glorious plant or make a donation to an animal shelter of your choice.
