Lynn S. Goldovitz
Lynn S. Goldovitz, 67, of DeBary, Florida passed away on Friday, August 7, 2020. She was born on July 10, 1953 in Wareham, Massachusetts to Frank E. and Patricia J. Kaasinen. After spending most of her life in New England, she moved to Central Florida from Massachusetts in 2004.
Lynn enjoyed a lifetime career in music, playing and teaching multiple instruments, as well as being a talented vocalist. She felt incredibly fortunate to be able to perform at such prestigious venues as the Ryles Jazz Club (Boston, MA), the Sfat International Klezmer Festival (Sfat, Israel), the Governor’s Mansion (New Jersey), as well as numerous festivals worldwide in such diverse locales as New Zealand and the Middle East. She also performed at hundreds of locations in the USA over the course of her career.
Her life of music, combined with her deep faith, led her to a position as Music Director and Spiritual Leader for the Jewish community in Central Florida for more than 15 years. She taught music and Hebrew to hundreds of students of all ages.
Lynn led an active life, full of exercise and a love of the outdoors. She was a certified Tai Chi/Qi Gong instructor, and especially enjoyed hiking and horseback riding. Travel was another love, and she made frequent trips to the Middle East, New Zealand, and many of United States.
She is survived by her husband of 49 years Joseph, her three sons Jason (MA), Jeremiah (NJ), and Joseph (MA), sister Susan Nowotny (VA) as well as 10 grandchildren and three chihuahas which meant the world to her.
She brought joy and love to many. All who knew her will miss her dearly. The world is a poorer, lesser place in her absence.
Memorial donations can be made in Lynn's name to Advent Health Hospice.
Condolences for the family can be sent to Altman-Long Funeral Home.
