Dr. Lynne Stettbacher, 75

 

Dr. Lynne Stettbacher, M.D., 75, passed away in her Edwardsburg home Sept. 17, 2012.

She was the only daughter of Fred and Mildred Stettbacher, both of whom have passed. Lynne cherished her rural Hoosier roots, even while living away from her Marshall County home for most of her life.

Lynne graduated from Culver High School in 1954 and received her bachelor of arts degree from North Central College in Naperville, Ill., in 1958. She then enrolled at the University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine, where she graduated in 1962. She later completed her internal medicine residency at Moffit Hospital, University of California. She furthered her medical training in hematology at Rush/St. Luke’s Presbyterian Hospital in Chicago. Dr. Stettbacher practiced preventive medicine and addiction medicine in Fort Wayne, Ind., until her retirement.

In her retirement, Lynne was a passionate supporter of several arts organizations, including the Fischoff National Chamber Music Association. She cared deeply for the local police and fire officials who protect our community. She was a member of the Evangelical Covenant Church of South Bend.
