Lynn Eden Perrault, a bank project manager who was an avid ice skater, collector and volunteer, died yesterday at her Reisterstown home of complications caused by a failed bone-marrow transplant. She was 50.
Mrs. Perrault married Steve Perrault in November 1996; her leukemia was diagnosed a short time later.
Born in Baltimore, she was raised in Timonium. In 1971, she graduated from Goucher College and two years later received a master's degree in teaching at the University of Chicago.
Mrs. Perrault taught French briefly at the Johns Hopkins University before pursuing a banking career. She earned a master's in administrative science at Hopkins. Later, she worked as a project manager at CitiFinancial Corp., a subsidiary of CitiGroup.
While there, she volunteered in the Ready at Five Partnership, a statewide coalition of public and private organizations committed to ensuring that all children are ready to learn when they enter school at age 5.
"It was one of the more satisfying components of her career," said Steve Perrault.
Mrs. Perrault enjoyed ice skating and collected early ice skating memorabilia, along with sketches of Disney characters and enamelware French lunch boxes. A 1936 art deco Tokheim gas pump was a prize possession.
Services will be held at 9 a.m. Wednesday at Eline Funeral Home, 11824 Reisterstown Road in Reisterstown.
In addition to her husband, she is survived by her father, Robert Smith of Towson and a sister, Roberta Jones of Timonium.
