I knew that Dynagirl was sick, but I didn't know how bad it had gotten. I am so sad to hear that she is gone. My heart goes out to her family.

Is this the first time we have lost a member of the community this way?

My best to Dynagirl's family and friends. It is truly saddening to hear of your loss.


May I request, with respect, that we maybe re-name this thread to something appropriate and maybe sticky it, so that people who would like to pay their respects may do so without too much difficulty? I would wager not many people who just "check in" on the board would know that they should click on a thread named "[redacted]" to learn of the passing of a fellow board member.

Just a gentle suggestion...

Either of the above sounds good to me.

Also, is there something we can do as a group, e.g., collect funds for flowers or a donation?

I really have to keep better track of the board. I keep coming back after short absences to terrible news.

To those of you who knew Dynagirl personally or were good 'board buddies' with her, and to her family, my most heartfelt condolences.

It sucks when we lose one of our own. Perhaps an industrious board member or admin could look back through some old posts, pictures, etc. and construct a memorial thread for her. To honor some of her contributions here and elsewhere.

This is just a 'news' thread...let's see a nice 'memorial' thread that helps us remember our friend in better times.

Peace to you, Dynagirl we will miss you...

He was pretty specific about that.

Unfortunately, ......... it was posted here.


I await Jonie's husbands email and will pass along his message when I receive it.

I'm FB friends with Jonie and a lot of "her kids" from school are posting things on her FB site, akin to a memorial. Very sweet and very touching.

I didn't know her very well, neither here nor on FB, but she was obviously very well loved and will be very sorely missed by many, many people. :(

The Facebook tributes from Jonie's students are so beautiful. They know her better than most of us & she touched their lives in a very special way.

I am very sorry to hear this.

Thank you for renaming the thread; I wouldn't have clicked on it otherwise.

There are pictures of her and her family from the first crabpalooza, if it seems okay to post them. Dynaboy may have been sitting on Kinsley's right. Who ever took the pic of me, Kinz, and that huge platter of crabs may have taken some.

I can't think of anything to add, other than what has already been said.

I met Jonie at my first Crabfeast in MD. Very nice person, and a very nice family. Dynaboy and my girls fed the ducks and fish at the Dock of the Bay.

My condolences to the Dynafamily. :cry:

Thanks Mongo for renaming, and restating. I've been following the thread, but only after it was redacted, and I didn't want to post my sympathies if I had read into the posts wrong.

My deepest sympathy to her friends and family. What a wonderful addition she has been to our group!

I've always believed that death is the time to celebrate the life that has
ended. My ex-wife's diabetic grandmother, often said that after she was
dead, she wanted her friends and relatives to have a picnic on her grave
and eat all the fattening things that she loved but had been forced to give
up. It made me sad that they never did it. I've always the thought that an
Irish wake is the way to go. Have a party! Do things that the departed
would have enjoyed.

To that end, and I hope you don't find this too trivial... Since Joni was
the only person I've ever met who was an enthusiastic fan of Women's Pro
Basketball... In her memory, I think I'll go to a WNBA game. There's still
a team in DC, isn't there? Anybody wanna join me? :wink:

btw - What's her last name? I'm sure I used to know it, but the memory
is weak.

Jonie Lehmann

Henry hasnt gotten back to me yet about the details of her services in MD or back in her hometown in Mississippi etc, but I know he has a lot on his plate right now...

The short story: Jonie has battled breast cancer for a couple of years now. They thought it was gone, but it came back. She was taking treatment, and she decided to go to West Virginia last weekend with some girlfriends to an outlet mall shopping. Somehow she fell and hit her head. She had head injuries that she could not recover from. She leaves behind Henry, her husband, and her 10 year old son James.



Her last post on Facebook on Saturday which I believe was shortly before her fall:
"Jonie Lehmann is in west Virginia listening to the breeze in the trees."

Rest In Peace Jonie.

It's nice to know that with everything she'd been through in the last few years, that she had some peace and relaxation before the end.

RIP, Dynagirl, and much love and healing to those left behind.

My heartfelt sympathies go out to DynaBoy and Dynahubby. Struggling with a difficult disease is bad enough, to have something unexpected like this come along during it is ..well..words fail me.

My thoughts are with Dynagirl's friends and family. May they revel in the happy memories and lean on each other for support.

I thought I would quote some of the FB quotes from Jonie's students, leaving out their names for privacy. Jonie taught at Bowie High School, and must have had an amazing impact on her students.

Its funny how one person can make so many people come together for one reason. Mrs. Lehmann was a saint and she didn't know it. From the way she expressed how she felt to the jokes she would make about other people like you and me. She produced a group of people that could learn to like each other each and produce a fabulous yearbook and newspaper. Her years at Bowie high school made an impact on soo many people and we will never for get her. Yes, it will be hard to let her go, but the morn of lehmann will forever last in our hearts we believed in her and she did make a difference in everyones life. There wasn't one person that I ever met at my years at Bowie that could honestly say that they did not like her. She is amazing. She cared, but she did not care too much. It was a good thing in many ways because if we were to get too close to her this would be all the much harder. I give her very intelligent son the best of wishes and I know he will be just as kind hearted and reall as her.

Rest in peace Ms. Lehmann. I really don't know what to say. You were the first person to great me at Bowie with a smile, you made me feel as if I was in a warm place. You comforted me when I was in need of support after I was fearing the consequences of my actions. You helped me discover the talents I had lying within myself. Not only photography, but my ability to write as well. It will be hard to discover what is to hold in my future without the guidance of one of my greatest mentors. Ms. Lehmann, I will greatly miss you. Forever may your soul be in a better place. It has been an honor to know you these last three years.


I love you!!! You will always be in my heart forever!!! I never could have asked for a better friend, teacher, etc. You were more than just my yearbook supervisor... I considered you like family. I will miss you!!! ♥ RIP
