A very giving person, who strove to please everyone she could. Lynne Marie Sporea-Wise lived an active life, enhancing the lives of those around her. She believed everyone had a story and she would often visit the homeless to hear theirs. She loved to work, travel and surround herself with people as well as spending time alone watching the ocean along the coast. Lynn was a sensitive person and took many things to heart. On May 23, 2009, her spirit was broken beyond repair by a bully that said incomprehensible things to her. On May 25th, at the age of 22, she ended her life. She is deeply loved and missed.
This portrait received funding to go home to her family. A copy of Lynn's portrait continues to travel with Jessica and the Words Matter exhibit.
