Obituary by Lynne Marie Authorities (LEFEBVRE).

Lynn Marie (Lefebvre) Powers, 58, of Coventry, passed away peacefully surrounded by her loving family on Friday, September 8, 2023 at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts.

Born in Warwick on 15 April 1965, she was the beloved daughter of the late Osmond L. and Doris J. (FAW) Lefebvre. Lynn attended West Warwick High School, and has a business degree from the New England Institute of Technology.

Lin loved experiencing life to the fullest. She has traveled the world with her loving partner, Bob, and best friends. She danced the night away to live music from classic rock bands, like her favourite, The Eagles. She built community through membership in the Coventry Men’s Club, East Greenwich Yacht Club, and the Firemen’s Club. And in the spring and summer months, she kept pretty flower beds at her home in Coventry.

Her greatest passion was being a mother to her three children, Lisa, Michael, and Melissa, and her dog, Yoshi. She’s been a very supportive “Dance Mom.” She loved watching her daughters grow up as they performed, taught and choreographed all over the country. The “Mother of the Navy” supported Michael while he served in the US Navy aboard the USS Kerasage, and cherished the messages they sent while he was deployed. Yoshi, an extra-large Yorkie, has been by her side for the past 16 years as her best friend and furry companion.

For the past 10 years, Lynn has served as Office Manager at the Ocean State Center for Independent Living (OSCIL). OSCIL is a local non-profit organization that provides a range of services to improve the quality of life of people with disabilities, through self-direction, and to promote inclusion in society. Through her work, she finds joy in advocating for individuals with disabilities and helping them live independently.

Lynn is survived by her loving partner Robert Vernon of Coventry. Her loving children: Lisa M. Powers of Reading, MA, Melissa L. Ray of Schenectady, NY, and Michael A. Powers, of Coventry; Her siblings: Dennis Lefebvre and his wife, Sharon, of Boynton Beach, FL, Alan LeFevre and his wife, Patricia, of West Warwick, Glenn LeFevre, of Warwick, Rena Gearhart, and her late husband, Edward, of Norfolk, Va., Lisa King and her husband, Mark, of Wayne, ME.
