Elderly media star, Lynn Yamada Davis, has died at 67.
Davis was a chef who shot to fame during the pandemic for her videos that focused on cooking and dancing.
She gained more than 17 million followers since she started the channel, @cookingwithlynja, in 2020.
Recently, Lynn Yamada Davis lost her battle with esophageal cancer.
Her daughter, Hannah Mariko Shofet, confirmed that her mother had passed away on Jan. 1 in New Jersey.
It is unclear how long Davis fought her battle, but we do know she touched many lives during her time on social media.
Her videos spread joy and happiness to countless individuals, and Davis knew it.
She knew how much her videos mattered.
That’s why she asked her family to continue sharing any of her videos that were yet to be posted after her death.
Her family agreed and has kept the channel going.
Her dance moves and great recipes were the kind of positive and uplifting content that the internet needs more of.
Lynn Yamada Davis will surely be missed by each of her 17.4 million followers.
Because the channel was such a huge part of who Davis was, it is easy to forget she lived the majority of her life before she ever started her channel.
She graduated from MIT back in the late 70s and actually had a career in telecommunications prior to her cooking channel.
Davis was not only an internet star, she was a “groundbreaking female engineer,” said her daughter, Hannah.
It sounds like Davis was an unstoppable force throughout her entire life and we commend her for all she accomplished during her time on earth.
Davis is one of the human beings who left the world better than she found it.
We pray for peace and comfort for anyone grieving her loss.
