Her son-in-law Tom Harris said she would invite clients to eat holiday meals with her family.
Despite her age, Mrs. Lyman still worked at United Cerebral Palsy three days a week, got her hair done every week, and kept her nails impeccably manicured, Harris said.
Her husband of 63 years, Bernie, was her best friend, and she dressed him every day because of his color-blindness, her daughter Joyce Harris said.
"Wherever she went and whoever she met, she was the most popular and beloved person," her granddaughter Katherine Harris said. "If we met somebody first and introduced her to them, instantly they were friends."
In addition to her husband, daughter, and granddaughter, Mrs. Lyman is also survived by a daughter, Debra Lyman Gniewek, and two other grandchildren.
A funeral will be at 10 a.m. Wednesday, June 19, at Goldsteins' Rosenberg's Raphael-Sacks, 310 Second Street Pike, Southampton. Burial will be in Roosevelt Cemetery, Bensalem.
