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.
