Lynda J. York, 75, of Manor Twp., passed away at her home on Saturday, July 3, 2021, surrounded by her family. Born in Lancaster, she was the daughter of the late Wellington York and Sarah (Rensel) York.

Lynda graduated from State College High School with the Class of 1963, and later attended Empire Beauty School. For more than 20 years, she was the owner of Lynda’s Beauty Lounge. She formerly taught cosmetology at both Empire Beauty School and Lancaster County Vo-Tech, now Lancaster CTC. She more recently worked as a nurse’s assistant at LGH Dialysis, and at Penn Manor High School as a personal care aide.

Surviving are three children: Kenneth A. Whitman and his wife Marcie of Elizabethtown, Robert O. Hunsinger and his wife Mariana of Mount Joy, and Amy L. Whitman and her fiancée Keith Newport of Wells Tannery. Also surviving are four granddaughters, Meghan, Julia, Abby and Adriana; two great-grandchildren, Cheyenne and Theodore; and a sister, Joan Kulka and her husband John of St. College.

The family would like to thank the doctors, staff and the Green Team of the Ann B. Barshinger Cancer Institute for their excellent care. Also special thanks to the Grace Cancer Care ministries.

We were so sorry to read of Lynda’s passing.  We would run into her when we were swimming at Homestead Village’s pool.  We always enjoyed our conversations, which helped pass the time as we were exercising.  She was always doing things for others and I’m sure made a difference in many people’s lives.  She probably never realized how many lives she touched with her kind deeds.
We are praying that your family finds peace with the memories you hold dear and the thought that she is no longer suffering.
With Deepest Sympathy

Lynda, It was fun working with you at Penn Manor. I also enjoyed the water aerobics class I took with you one Summer. You always had such fun talking about your grandchildren. Your spunk always made time spent with you fun. Thank you also, for introducing me tto Dragon Habachi. I hope your family knows how special a person you were to many!

My condolences to your family.  Lynda was a very special lady!  I knew Lynda through “Ladies for Vets”.  I would embroider her aprons and other things for her.  She was always busy and doing for others.  She was a wonderful person and will be missed by many.  Rest in Peace my Friend.  I will miss you.
