Lyn Marie Albrecht, of Montgomery Village, MD, died on Monday, February 1, 2016, at the Casey House Hospice, after a courageous battle with cancer. She is the beloved daughter of Mary Louise Pridmore of Bloomfield Hills, MI and St. Louis Park, M​N​ and John H. Albrecht and his wife, Christa Tews-Albrecht of Troy, MI; dear sister of Catherine Albrecht and her husband Michael Romary, Ada, OH​; Jeffrey Albrecht, St. Louis Park, M​N​; Susan Albrecht, Brooklyn, NY​; and David Albrecht and his wife Cheryl, St. Louis Park, M​N; aunt of Emily Albrecht, Katrina Albrecht, Julia Albrecht, Henry Albrecht, Esther Klingbiel, Rebecca Albrecht and Julian Klingbiel. Many loving friends also survive her. 

From 2003 until 2014, Lyn ​was employed by the Deployment Health Clinical Center (DHCC) as a writer and editor​. She also served as webmaster for the Walter Reed Society. Lyn was born at Chinook Air Force Base in Rantoul, Illinois. After completing high school in Michigan she received a bachelor�s degree in anthropology from Princeton University and a master�s of science in computer science from Oakland University. ​She then moved to Maryland where she worked for the IBM Federal Systems Division. She worked at General Electric Information Systems  and the National Institutes of Health. ​As quoted in the Walter Reed Society Newsletter in 2014, Lyn said, �I�m not a doctor or a nurse. I can�t provide hands-on care to the wounded service members, but I am a writer with an IT background, so in my own little way, I like to think I am helping. My support of such a worthwhile organization as the Walter Reed Society means a lot to me.� 

​One of Lyn's happiest achievements was earning a master�s degree from the Pontifical John Paul II Institute for Studies on Marriage and Family at the Catholic University of America in 2012, three years after her initial diagnosis of ovarian cancer.

Friends may call at DeVol Funeral Home, 10 E.
