Lynn S. Goodridge

May 13, 1945 ~ December 6, 2022
Lynn Constance Smith Goodridge, 77, of Clinton, passed away unexpectedly at her home on December 6, 2022. She was born in Utica on May 13, 1945, daughter of the late Thomas Allen and Helen (Parshall) Smith.  In 1960, Lynn met Edward Goodridge, and the two were united in marriage in 1967, at the First Presbyterian Church in Utica.  The couple shared 59 years together until Edward’s passing in 2019. Lynn was a familiar face in the Clinton community as she worked 32 years for Clinton Central School District as the bus driver that every child wished to have.  Her caring and compassionate heart allowed her to find a connection with many students that still rave and speak of her in the highest regard, even though she had retired over 15 years ago. Lynn was also active in the community by starting her own pet sitting business, which she took the utmost pride in for nearly 20 years. She created a special bond with owners and pets alike, with whom she formed and maintained many beautiful friendships over those years. Although Lynn was successful at every job she had, the one that brought her the most joy was being a loving mother and grandmother.  Her abounding care and compassion showed in every gesture and will be missed beyond measure.

President Clinton impeached

“After nearly 14 hours of debate, the House of Representatives approves two articles of impeachment against President Bill Clinton, charging him with lying under oath to a federal grand jury and obstructing justice. Clinton, the second president in American history to be impeached, vowed to finish his term. In November 1995, Clinton began an affair with Monica Lewinsky, a 21-year-old unpaid intern. Over the course of a year and a half, the president and Lewinsky had nearly a dozen sexual encounters in the White House. In April 1996, Lewinsky was transferred to the Pentagon. That summer, she first confided in Pentagon co-worker Linda Tripp about her sexual relationship with the president. In 1997, with the relationship over, Tripp began secretly to record conversations with Lewinsky, in which Lewinsky gave Tripp details about the affair.”
