Lynne Tauman

Date of Death: October 8th, 2020
20 in Tishri 5781


Lynne Tauman, my beloved and precious sister, passed away on October 8th, 2020, peacefully in her own home, in Chicago, Illinois, from complications of cancer. She was beloved sister of Mark Tauman, beloved daughter of Rivelle (Chyenkus) and Daniel Tauman, and cherished friend, cousin and 'sibling of the heart' to many, many people. Lynne did everything from running offices (for Israel Aliyah), to account management (in advertising), to being the office central coordinator (in chiropractic), among many things. But beyond that, she beamed like a star and inspired so many people, always inspiring others to glow and know their own light and strength, constantly evoking responses of "what light she has," "what passion," "what joy!" She was, in fact, a galaxy of joy, along with humor, passion, wonderful play, and dance of the heart and soul. She will be cremated at her expressed wish, and will be remembered by all as one who somehow never dies, but lives on like a glowing bonfire. In lieu of flowers, donate to whatever brings people joy - or bring joy, yourself: She'd want everyone to spread their wings and fly. She will be missed terribly, with the most boundless gratitude and love.

Mark, I am so sorry for your loss. Lynne was one of my favorite people. I started at DDB Needham in 1986 and, like she had done with many fresh-faced but clueless Assistant Account Executives, Lynne taught me what I needed to know about managing an advertising budget. I will always remember her infectious smile, her hearty laugh, her kindness as well as the giant stacks of paper in her office! Over the years, we became friends. She introduced me to sushi, and we enjoyed many fun sushi dinners with Barb. I moved from Chicago in 1997, and the last time I was lucky enough to see Lynne was in 2015. When I last saw Lynne that day, she seemed unchanged, although I know she had battled and was battling health issues. Regardless, her face was beaming that day with love and kindness. That's how I choose to always remember Lynne. I hope you have similar wonderful memories of your sister. I'm sorry we've never met. Again, my sincere condolences to you. May Lynne rest in peace knowing she touched so many lives with her positive spirit.

Lynne always made things brighter. She helped me through my bout with cancer and when I was injured and laid up for 18 month. She is deeply missed and I will always treasure my memories of her.
