Lynda was born in Richmond, California but was privileged to call many small Utah towns home, including Delta were she has lived for more than 50 years.
Lynda had many wonderful hobbies and talents, but was especially gifted in sewing and art. She could always be found sewing something for her children, grandchildren, friends, and neighbors right up to her passing. She also enjoyed crocheting, quilting, gardening, playing softball with her girls, and baking. However her greatest joy was found in children, her own and everyone elses. She spent years doing day care, foster care, and working with the special needs children at the school.
She was a collector of teddy bears and teapots. Lynda was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, and held many callings in the church throughout her life. She loved the temple and her Heavenly Father.
