Apia, SAMOA —  The owner of one of Apia's most well-known businesses has passed away.

Matai'a Lynn Netzler, more widely known simply as Lynn, passed away on Wednesday afternoon, September 7 at her Moto'otua home.

Lynn and her late husband, Thor Netzler, started a small village store in the early 1970s but with a mini bakery that became so popular, they soon had to expand the store.

After the untimely passing of her husband, Lynn continued the expansion and soon turned the store into Lynn's Supermarket, complete with a butchery selling local fresh meat.

She leaves behind the ever-growing supermarket plus a petrol station, two eateries, and upmarket tourist accommodation.

She is survived by six children.
