Linsey Govoni Obituary, Death – On December 15 (Monday), Lynne A. Govoni, who had lived her entire life to be 51 years old, passed suddenly. Her mother, Cam (Marini) Sebastiano, gave birth to her on October 9, 1963, and her father, Joseph Foley, passed away before she was born. Marini was her mother’s maiden name before she married. Lynne was able to graduate from Turners Falls High School since it was there that she fulfilled all of the qualifications necessary to do so. She was a member of the Order of the Little Sisters of the Poor in the area that encompassed Springfield, in addition to the fact that she was the owner and operator of her own business known as Lynne Govoni Paralegal Services. Lynne donated a significant amount of both her time and her energy to the Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) during the course of her volunteer work there.
Reading, dancing, traveling, going to the beach, playing keno, and hanging out on her balcony with her family and friends were just some of the activities that Lynne liked doing in her spare time. She became a foster mother for a number of years and throughout that time she looked after approximately five hundred different children. Because of the contagious energy she exuded, her effervescent and carefree manner will be entrenched in our memories for all time. The passing away of Lynne’s cherished daughter Mikayla L. Govoni in 1995 left her mother all by herself. Since then, Lynne has been a single parent.
She is survived by her devoted mother Cam Sebastiano, her two children Kelsey A. Govoni and Erik M. Govoni, her sister Tina (Simonetti) Dancer, her husband Rick of Arizona, and her son Dane Simonetti, her sister Kim (Foley) Hawkins and her husband Larry of North Carolina, and their children Blake and Emily, her brother John Jocko Foley of Quincy, Massachusetts, her ex-husband Paul Govoni, a close friend
