Alynda shared her faith with everyone she met, through words and the example of how she lived her life. She loved Jesus, family, friends, and serving others.

She provided a loving and fun home that was always full of laughter and friends! Her daughters describe her as not only the best mom and wife in the world but was also the best friend. She was generous, joyful, full of adventure, and loved traveling around the world. Alynda loved family dinners, dancing, singing, and spending time with her grandchildren.

Alynda loved well and left a legacy of love that will last for generations to come.

The scripture Proverbs 31:25-31 describes her best: “A woman of noble character.”

Alynda will be missed, and we will have an ache in our hearts until we are greeted home by her, our daddy, and our precious Lord Jesus!
