WINSTON-SALEM - Lynne Easter Albright, 68, passed away Monday, August 16, 2010 after a two-month battle from a debilitating stroke. She was born September 30, 1941 in Trinity, NC to John C. and Louise Collett Easter. She graduated from Trinity High School and Appalachian State University. Lynne loved her family and her friends and never met a dog she didn't like. She was at home whether canoeing the Okefenokee or polishing an English silver platter. She had the vision to see potential where others might not, whether in people like a curious 5-year old or in an antique linen or sideboard. Lynne began teaching kindergarten in Winston-Salem at First Baptist Church and then at Centenary Methodist Church. After that, she taught kindergarten for many years at Clemmons Elementary School where many students may remember her as the "Butterfly Lady." She also served as president of the NC Kindergarten Association in the early seventies. After retiring from a career in teaching, she started Albright's Antiques. She enjoyed the people and the shows as much as treasure hunting and restoration. Surviving are her devoted husband, James (Jim) C. Albright, Sr., son Jim Albright, Jr., wife Robin Yontz and their two sons, Jacob and Blake; Son, Steve Albright and wife Joy Dai. She also leaves a sister Jan McDuffie (Dale) and nephew Damon McAdams and John C. Easter, Jr. (Mary, deceased) and nephew Jeffrey Easter. The family would like to invite Lynne's friends and students for a celebration of her life at Hayworth-Miller Funeral Home on Silas Creek Parkway this Friday evening from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m.. The Albright family would like to extend their sincerest gratitude to Forsyth Hospital's neurological team as well as the doctors and nurses of the Select Specialty Hospital on the sixth floor. The compassion shown Lynne went well beyond care into love. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the Forsyth Humane Society of Winston-Salem, 61 Miller Street, W-S, NC 27104.
