LeRoy, NY – December 10th, 2022 at age 62. Lynae is survived by her two sons, Eric and Rudolf Sakshaug, and her sisters, Julie Stauch and Janet Galusza.
Lynae was an educator for all of her life, mostly at the college level; with her most recent tenure being at SUNY Empire, up until her passing. She loved to garden, and loved her dog Maggie, and cat Bitsy. Lynae was a graduate of the University of North Carolina, and would enthusiastically cheer on her Tar Heels every March, just like she would cheer on everyone in her life, with great enthusiasm for even the smallest of triumphs of her friends and family.
Near the end, Lynae was surrounded by friends and family, and family was at her bedside right until the end. We would like to thank the staff at Strong Memorial Hospital for their help in the fight against the melanoma that eventually took her life. They ensured that Lynae was at peace when the time was finally right.
In lieu of flowers, we ask that donations be made to one of the following charitable organizations in Lynae’s memory: UNICEF, the American Cancer Society, Amnesty International, or the ACLU.
Lynae’s memorial service will be held Saturday, December 17th, 11:00 am at the First Baptist Church of Rochester, 175 Allen’s Creek Road, Rochester (Pittsford), NY 14618.
