Dr. Lynette Barbara Goodstine, 73, of Villas died Nov. 19, 2019. She was born and raised in Manchester, Conn.
Dr. Goodstine practiced as an internist for more than 20 years at Lankenau Hospital in Wynnewood, Pa. She then joined the Philadelphia VA Medical Center, where, driven by her passion to help female veterans, she created the women’s health program and became its director.
She graduated from University of Connecticut with a B.A. degree. She attended medical school at the Catholic University of Louvain, Belgium, and the Medical College of Pennsylvania, where she earned her M.D.
In her retirement, she returned to her love for art, and through the years produced a volume of award-winning drawings and paintings.
She is survived by her daughter, Sarah Levin Goodstine (Laurie Levin Goodstine) of Montclair, and a granddaughter.
