Lynda Cheldelin Fell
Lynda Cheldelin Fell is a married mother of four and grandmother of one. Born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, Lynda and her husband found themselves beginning the long journey through profound grief when their teen daughter died in 2009, in a car accident while returning home from a swim meet. Their world took another unexpected turn when, three years later, Lynda’s 46 year-old husband suffered a major stroke leaving him with permanent disabilities. Through this time, Lynda and her family have learned a great deal about grief, grace, love, and healing. Lynda is the founder of Good Grief Worldwide™, which works to offer a family of support for grievers everywhere, and is an official partner of National Grief Awareness Day. Lynda produces and hosts the radio show, Good Grief Talk Show, and designed the trademarked national grief awareness symbol now sold in a line of gifts in the National Grief Awareness Day’s fundraising store, the Official Grief Store. She writes for national grief resources, and authors the blog "A Stroke of Love," focusing on grief validation, bits of wisdom, understanding and hope with requests for republication across the nation. She also authored “Don’t Chase the Sunset: 5 Steps to Finding the Sunrise in the Darkness of Grief” in the international bestselling book “The Missing Piece: A Transformational Journey." Lynda is the Board Secretary of National Grief Awareness Day, and is the convention coordinator of the National Grief Convention 2015. Through all her endeavors, her sole heartfelt purpose is to support and offer hope to grievers around the world. Lynda and her husband reside in Ferndale, Washington.
