We are deeply saddened to announce that Lynn Caruso passed away after a courageous battle with cancer on Sunday, April 1, 2012. Lynn touched every single person she met in such a profound way. Her efforts through SCB have bettered the lives of thousands of people in Jamaica and her expertise in education has spanned the globe, reaching as far as China and Japan. She will be deeply missed by all who have had the privilege of knowing and loving her.
Please join her family in a celebration of her life. Lynn requested that all in attendance refrain from wearing black because that was her nature - brightness above all.
Visitation will be held at Trull Funeral Home at 1111 Danforth Ave., on Sunday, April 8, 1-6 p.m. and Monday, April 9, 2-4 and 7-9 p.m.
The funeral service will be held on Tuesday, April 10, 11 a.m. at Holy Name Parish, 71 Gough (Danforth and Pape Ave.).
In lieu of flowers, please donate generously to "Students Crossing Borders" by clicking on the DONATE! tab above.
In memory of Lynn, our goal is to raise $250 000 CA to fulfill her biggest dream for the Riverton Community by building a new school.
Students Crossing Borders is a non-profit, volunteer network of educators, students and other motivated individuals who have been traveling to Jamaica since 1991. The group was started by Fintan Kilbride, a high school teacher who led groups into communities with identified needs in order to participate in community strengthening projects. Leadership of SCB was handed over to Lynn Caruso in 2005.
Our main focus is to assist in early education and community initiatives in partnership with local community leaders. Anyone with a desire to facilitate change is welcome to join us on one of our exciting and very busy trips. Read on to see all that we have been able to accomplish in collaboration with our Jamaican partners.
Lynn Caruso and friends
