She was born to Louis and Marie Melluso on April 4, 1950. After graduating high school she went on to pursue her dream of cosmetology school. She also enjoyed working in the corporate world, which included Martindale Hubbell to name a few. This is where she would meet the love of her life Daniel Smith, and the two would set down roots in New Providence where they would remain for 49 years. Together they had two children: Carolyne and Gregory.
Lynn loved her friends and family. She could often be found watching QVC and her soaps, with her childhood friend Cheryl. She loved watching shows like Svengoolie and the New York Yankee games with her husband, and calling her son and daughter to see how they and her grandchildren were. She also had a love of music and could provide you with a name and singer of of a song almost immediately. As a mother she could be found loving and helping her children grow, as well as teaching them the skills they would need to navigate this world.
Lynn was predeceased by her father Louis, mother Marie, and sister Ellen. She is survived by her husband Daniel (Danny as she often called him), daughter Carolyne, son Gregory, his wife Whitney Smith (Overton), her four grandchildren Gabriella, Danny, Grey, & Saylor, her sister Joyce and her husband Robert Stapperfenne as well as their daughter Sarah and her husband Keith. She is also survived by her favorite fur baby Lucy.
