Lynda Vinson

Lynda VanNorman Vinson of Cumby, Texas passed into her Savior’s loving arms surrounded by her children at her residence on May 9, 2022. She was a long-time resident of Cumby, an active member of Cross Power Church in Campbell, and a loving mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend.

Lynda was born December 22, 1945, in Mineral Wells, Texas to Lyle and Mary VanNorman. She was the third daughter of four loving sisters. She grew up helping her father on their farm, where her love of animals first began. Lynda graduated from Bryan Adams High School in Dallas, Texas.      

Lynda earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Social Work from East Texas State University. Later, she returned to school to earn a Master of Social Work from Texas A&M University-Commerce. She worked as a social worker in homecare and long-term care. She also served on the Cumby ISD Board of Trustees for several years. Her greatest joys came from loving her family and helping those in need. After she retired, she was a volunteer at the local food pantry, wrote grants for Habitat for Humanity, and never hesitated to lend a helping hand.

 Lynda was an avid horsewoman and spent many years raising quarter horses and working cattle with her loving husband. She loved the beach, often asking to return to the coast just to walk in the sand and let the waves revive her spirit. She enjoyed her Sisters Parties, traveling with her children, and spending holidays surrounded with family. She was a long-time member of the Order of Eastern Star, serving as Associate Matron in the Cumby Chapter before its demise.

 She is preceded in death by her husband, Robert “Bob” Vinson, grandchildren Chance Penland and Tiffany Ash, parents Lyle and Mary VanNorman, and sister Carolyn Webster.

Lynda is survived by her son, David Penland of Cumby, daughter Dana “Sissy” Evans of San Antonio, daughter Kelly (Monroe) Hobbs of Yorktown, grandchildren Chris Lay of Lafayette, Caleb (Lauren) Penland of Cumby, Tristan Penland of Greenville, Monroe, Marshal, and Oliva Hobbs of Victoria, seven great-grandchildren, and sisters Diane (Don) Schuyler of Cumby and Marilyn (Dennis) Werner of Plano.

A visitation will be held on Friday, May 13, 2022 from 6:00 P.M. until 8:00 P.M. at Jones-Walker & Son Funeral Home.

Funeral service will be held at 4:00 P.M. on Saturday, May 14, 2022 at Cross Power Cowboy Church in Campbell, TX.

An era is gone. Fun days visiting at the cafe. Marveling at our daughters. A determined woman and loving friend. She helped so many.

Lynda was one of the sweetest women we have ever had the pleasure of knowing. Her love of God, her family, friends and all she met was a shing example for us all. Her gentle nature and beautiful smile warmed our hearts. We will see you again soon our dear Lynda where we will never have to say goodbye again.

Linda will certainly missed but never forgotten. She was one of the sweetest women I ever met but also stern when necessary and always intelligent. She was always a joy to talk to and never made you feel uncomfortable. I love my Aunt Linda and will miss visiting her down to earth personality and always welcoming home. Till we see you again Aunt Linda.
