Lynn Lukas-Harvey November 29, 1956 - December 25, 2018

Lynn Lukas-Harvey, 62 passed away peacefully in her sleep, December 25, 2018.  She was born in Springfield to Beverly and Raymond Lukas of Longmeadow, MA.  Lynn was a graduate of Longmeadow High School (class of 1974).  She then earned a degree in graphic design from the University of Connecticut and a master’s degree in design from the University of Massachusetts.

Lynn met and married David Harvey of Wilbraham, MA in 1993.  Lynn and David loved to travel and were both active members of the Springfield theater guild.  Lynn was a passionate artist with unique creative talent.  She applied those skills in creating colorful fabric illustrations, which hang today in many households throughout New England. Lynn also designed kitchens and worked for various businesses in MA, notably R. K. Myles, Baystate Plumbing, Kitchens by Chapdelaine, Showcase Kitchens and Kitchens of Distinction.  In 2017, Lynn and David moved to Hendersonville, NC where Lynn was employed by Lifestyles by Design.

Lynn is survived by her husband David; a brother Raymond Lukas and his spouse Laurie; a sister Lauri Hegarty and her spouse Jeremiah; along with many nieces and nephews.

    That was such a beautiful tribute to Lynn, David. The photo captures her beauty, sunny spirit, sense of style and her love and devotion to her dogs. I will always cherish the bond Lynn and I developed during our 3 years in graduate school for design at UMASS. I was drawn to her vivacious personality, always so kind and upbeat, and a very supportive friend. I remember when you came into the picture, David, I believe during our last year there. We heard about this great guy she had met and how you could make her laugh that great laugh we all know so well. Lynn was such a special person and I will miss her very much. Sending you and your family love and prayers in this unimaginably difficult time.

I know in my heart she is looking down at all of us smiling with all of her many dogs at her side.

God bless you and your family.
