Lynette, I am so sorry and saddened by the loss of your mother! I always considered her a friend and for years, a neighbor. I thought of her as a very fun and “together” person. We first met about 30 years ago as Weight Watcher members and later years we attended some “widow” classes together. I recently thought of her when I was at Garden Ridge and wondered where she might be. My heart aches for you . Deepest Sympathy to you and your family. Love and Prayers. Karan

Lynne Peters meant so much to Joy and me over the years. She is one of those people in Owasso that we remember with friendship and fond memories. She was so much a part of Owasso Schools that, as principals, it is impossible to think of her and not of the many years she was there when we needed her. Lynette and Andrew, your mother will be missed by all who knew her.
