In Loving Memory of Lynda Keys (July 23, 1946 - September 23, 2021)


Lynda Keys passed away tragically on September 23, 2021 - and today we said our final goodbyes. Lynda was a long-time member of the chorus and a Sweet Adeline for 46 years. As a baritone, she sang also with many different quartets and competed with them at Regionals.

Barbershop and Sweet Adelines were a huge part of Lynda's life. She loved the organization, loved going to conventions, singing tags, or just getting together with people from all over the world and chatting and singing until the wee hours. She knew so many, and many knew her. I personally won't forget my first convention in Baltimore (2014) where she sat next to me giving me all the details about "the who-is-who" and the different quartets and choruses we were watching. Or my first experience singing in a quartet with our daughters forming MAD quartet (Mothers-and-Daughters). And like myself, many of us have special memories with Lynda which we will cherish forever. She will be deeply missed.
