Lynn received a B.A. from the University of Wisconsin and her Juris Doctorate from Valparaiso University. Specializing in Family Law, Lynn practiced through her offices in Merrillville and Valparaiso for over 30 years.

Survivors include their twin daughters, Sophie Hammond-Hagman & Hannah Hammond-Hagman (Ezra Burke), stepchildren, Marielle Hagman (Robert Bozica), Justin Hagman & Brendan Hagman (Julie), grandchild, Avi Burke, sister, Jamie Hammond, and nephew, Jacob Hammond.

As my own heart feels the pain of losing Lynn, I can only imagine the pain her loving family is feeling. Lynn was a special person in my life, beginning as our attorney and growing into a valued and treasured friend. Lynn offered her professional skills by providing legal counsel on occasion and ultimately marrying my wife and me in our home after SCOTUS ruled in our favor to finally marry!
While the legal advice and work she provided were important, Lynn's friendship was a treasure. Those who knew Lynn know she was a unique, strong, brilliant, insightful, loving and independent woman. Enjoying her peaceful lake home in solitude or fully immersed in activities with her family or friends, Lynn soaked in the beauty of the world and people around her. Lynn was a devoted wife and mother and a dear friend. I will miss her warmth, her wisdom, friendship and her presence in our lives. I will treasure the memories. My deepest condolences to Hannah, Sophie, Ezra, Avi, Jamie, Jacob, Marielle, Justin and Brendan. -Jean Lubeckis
