BREVARD COUNTY • VIERA, FLORIDA – Lynn A. Duda passed away peacefully on December 6, 2021, at William Childs Hospice House in Palm Bay after a valiant fight with cancer. She was just shy of 72.
Lynn was born on December 10, 1949, in Detroit, Michigan. She was preceded in death by her parents John L. Fralick and Patricia Fralick-Forrester.
She is survived by her husband, Joseph; sister, Sue (and Bill) Snyder; children, Alexandra Duda, Mike (and Elizabeth) Morris, Donna (and Rob) Duda LaRue, Valerie (and Scott) Miller; grandchildren, Sydney (and Cameron) Wales, Eden and Hadley Miller, and Roxy Duda.
Lynn grew up in a suburb of Detroit and at the age of 18 began a career in modeling that peaked when she worked for a major agency in New York City.
Her experience in the world of modeling ignited a love of retail sales and, as a savvy business owner, she launched two successful boutiques: East Coast Clothing in Stuart and Coco’s in Cocoa Village – both served as conduits to her real love which was making people feel good.
Lynn met the love of her life in 1988 and they were married on November 4, 1989, at St. Luke’s Lutheran Church in Slavia, Florida.
They moved to Brevard County and became residents of Viera, Florida, where they raised their family. As a local business owner, Lynn shined her light into other people’s hearts, improving the way they felt about themselves.
She will be deeply missed by her family and the many friends she made throughout her life.
A Celebration of Life will be held at Faith Viera Lutheran Church on December 16, 2021, at 2 p.m. A reception will follow in the Fellowship Hall.
