Lynda Suzanne Evans Brooks Levin passed away peacefully at home on June 3rd, 2023 after a long illness. She was born January 3, 1946 in Washington, PA, the oldest daughter of Eva (Kelley) and Jess Robert Evans.
Lynda and her siblings moved around a lot as children, between PA, AL and finally settling in Millville, NJ. Lynda graduated from Millville High School in 1964. She attended Glassboro State Teachers College and then Hahnemann Hospital School of Nursing where she met her husband, Andrew. They moved to Massachusetts in 1973, settling into their home in Holyoke in 1976 and have lived there ever since. She worked as a nurse, first for Dr. Sam Mazza and then for her husband when he opened a private practice in Holyoke.
Lynda was a talented artist, seamstress and history buff. She designed and made both of her daughter’s wedding dresses, made and restored stained glass, made costumes for her kids school plays, acted as videographer for dance recitals, was a Girl Scout troop leader, painted, made kimekomi dolls, was an historian, house and furniture restorer, gardener, was an avid genealogist (she traced her family history back to William the Conqueror) and was a royalty aficionado, even attending the weddings of the King of Spain and the Crown Prince of Denmark. She gave lectures on royal history and crown jewels. She made amazing holiday meals and was especially known for her homemade horseradish, gefilte fish and Cherries Jubilee at Passover. She was notorious for making “cookie runs” to her kids in college, showing up in the middle of the night with homemade cookies. She loved playing video games with her granddaughter. She loved being a mother more than anything.
Lynda is predeceased by her parents and brothers, Robert and Michael, as well as her first husband, Gregory Brooks, who was killed in action in Vietnam. She is survived by her loving husband of 50 years, Andrew, her children Rhonda Evans (Travis Winfrey), Caroline Levin (Brian Roy) and Joshua Levin, her granddaughter Anina Winfrey, her sister Nikki Evans, her nephew Bob Evans and wife Melissa and her nieces Nancy Evans-Aaron, and Emily Dubois who were all like her second kids.
The family would like to especially thank Dr. Robert Byrne and his amazing staff as well as the incredible team at Hospice Life Care.
There will be no funeral, but a life celebration will be held at their home later this month. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
