Lyn Misner is an Idaho native who loves learning new things – preferably by reading and studying and not by going through difficult circumstances. But, as with most people, she hasn’t been able to avoid the latter.
She is a mother of five adult children who differ from each other in nearly as many ways as possible and amaze her in the various paths their lives are taking. Her children’s greatest and most appreciated accomplishments are the eleven grandchildren they have given her. She is also a widow who misses her husband every day but who has found the re-inventing of herself as a single person to be a great adventure.
She is a retired middle school teacher and a two-time cancer survivor. Her hobbies include travel via the scenic route, reading, sewing and quilting, and genealogy. She enjoys watching old movies from the mid twentieth century, listening to 50s and 60s music, and viewing beautiful scenery.
She believes in the strength and power of women. A favorite quote that hangs in her office is: “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world. Indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.” (Margaret Meade)
