July 7, 1960 ~ September 16, 2016
Lynn Morgan was born July 7, 1960 in Los Angeles California. She was the first born to Thomas, and Willeane Morgan.
At an early age, she excelled in school. An elementary school principal suggested that she be placed in the gifted program. She attended Overland Elementary, and upon graduation, she attended Windward High School in Santa Monica. This is where she fell in love with art, literature, and creative writing. She rose above the curve of most students, and graduated at the age of fifteen with an IQ of 170.
At the age of 15, Lynn took a trip to the East Coast, to visit potential colleges. Torn between Harvard, and Smith College, she weighed her options, and ultimately enrolled at the prestigious Smith College, located in North Hampton Massachusetts.
She graduated with a degree in journalism at the age of nineteen.
When she returned to Los Angeles she would take on the task of a staff writer at People Magazine. A corporate downsize, was on the agenda of the parent company, Time Warner, and she was a victim of a job loss. Not being the one to take a loss lying down, she decided to become a freelance writer. She wrote for Los Angeles Times Magazine, Sunset Magazine, Town and Country, Vanity Fair, and many other magazines, publications and blogs in the digital space. Lynn shined in her element best, when she interviewed celebrities about their real estate, art, or jewelry collections. She also authored a book, "Modern to Classic Residential Estates" along with the world renown architect, Richard Landry.
A few months ago, Lynn was diagnosed with congestive heart failure. She fought very hard, but she lost her battle on Friday, September 16th. She leaves her mother, brother Tommy Morgan (Michalla), uncles, aunts, cousins and friends to mourn her.
