Lynn Chung-Tran Family Service Counselor lynn@mountainviewcemetery.org

As a San Francisco Bay Area native, Lynn's upbringing in our multi-cultural climate provided her the opportunity to relate to people from many social, economic and ethnic backgrounds. Prior to joining Mountain View Cemetery, Lynn served the community in a medical environment, where she further developed her communication skills, empathy and patience.

Her background and these skills contribute to her ability to help families that come to Mountain View Cemetery. Complementing this ability is her fluency in English, Cantonese and Vietnamese.

During the past 10 years, serving as a Family Service Counselor at Mountain View Cemetery, Lynn has drawn on her experience to quickly develop rapport with the families she serves. Her caring and compassionate nature provide comfort to all who come to her for assistance. "My goal is to provide comfort to the families I serve just as if they were my own family."

When helping families who have experienced the death of a loved one, Lynn provides clear options and assists the family through the entire process. Lynn also helps families select and design memorial markers and make preneed funeral plans.

In her spare time, Lynn enjoys photography, hiking and travelling, and spending time with her family.

Jeff Lindeman General Manager and CFO

A California native, Jeff grew up in the Bay Area. He earned his Bachelor of Science in Accounting and Finance from the Haas School of Business at UC Berkeley. After working at Deloitte & Touche and Nordstrom, he joined Mountain View Cemetery as a consultant in 1989, programming the cemetery's general ledger software. Several years later, he became the cemetery's controller.

Now, as general manager and CFO, his responsibilities include managing both day-to-day operations and future design and development. He is a licensed cemetery manager, cemetery broker, and crematory manager.

Jeff chose to work at Mountain View Cemetery because he found its unique combination of beauty and challenges to solve compelling. His favorite part about his work is designing and developing infrastructure that will bring happiness to the families it serves, while simultaneously preparing the cemetery for generations of success. In his free time, he enjoys photography and art. He's currently learning to play the guitar - badly.

Katherine Gibney Controller - Mountain View Cemetery

Katherine's vast work experience ranges from very large corporations to small start-ups, with a specialty in working with non-profit organizations. Serving as the controller of Mountain View Cemetery, she is able to utilize her broad work experience in accounting and organization, and particularly enjoys the challenges of new projects.

As a fifth-generation Californian, raised in the East Bay, Katherine feels connected with the history of Mountain View Cemetery, where she began working in 2006 on a six-week temporary assignment. She was struck by the staff's commitment to serving the community and its customers, and appreciated the atmosphere of respect. What she finds most impressive, however, is that the management and trustees of Mountain View Cemetery are diligent in their fiscal responsibility and their commitment to ensuring that the grounds will be maintained beautifully for generations to come.

Katherine enjoys hiking, travelling, family gatherings, and vegetarian cooking.
