More than 100 family, friends, and business associates recently gathered to honor the legacy of community philanthropist Lynn Kramer, who died in March, at the renaming and dedication ceremony of Village by the Shore at Jewish Family Service of Atlantic & Cape May Counties. It is now known as the Lynn P. Kramer Village by the Shore. A matriarch who selflessly volunteered at an array of organizations, including JFS, Ms. Kramer was committed to helping older adults in our community.
“JFS was fortunate to have someone so devoted to assisting people in our region,” Andrea Steinberg, JFS’s chief executive officer, said. “Lynn was tenacious about raising funds and supporting the agency’s events. While Lynn’s quick wit, amazing style and bright smile are attributes many of us enjoyed, it was her caring nature and generous soul that made the most profound impact within our community.”
“Lynn always said how much she respected JFS and their mission and service to the community. We participated every year by supporting programs with the family foundation grant and it is appropriate that the JFS Village by the Shore received the Lynn and Charles Kramer Family Fund Endowment to both honor and remember her name,” Charles Kramer, Lynn’s husband, said.
Village by the Shore helps older adults 50+ to enjoy life in their own homes through the concept of neighbors helping neighbors. To ensure that all older adults, regardless of income, can age in place with dignity, the village provides a range of services needed to live healthy, productive, and independent lives.
