Emporia News needs your help...

Do you read Emporia News every day? Have you ever considered supporting this community based news service with a donation? You may also make a recurring donation with a subscription.

Emporia News needs your help because it is time to replace a laptop and a camera, so that I may continue to bring you a quality site. It troubles me to ask for donations, but without support, Emporia News may be forced to shut down. Thank You.

Lynda adored children; A brilliant twinkle was evident in her eyes and her smile was infectious when she interacted with children. She was quick to get eye to eye with children and talk to them in a manner that put them at ease.  She especially loved her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.  She was a devoted and loving grandmother who was always present.  She lives in their hearts and they will always remember her eyes full of infinite tenderness.

The funeral service will be held 3 p.m. Sunday, August 11 at Zion Baptist Church, 974 Zion Church Rd, Skippers, Virginia where the family will receive friends one hour prior to the service. Interment will follow in the church cemetery.
