Virginia Lynch

On Sunday, Oct. , 30, 2016, Virginia Joyce Lynch was called home to be with the Lord.

She was born Virginia Joyce Thomas on Jan. 24, 1950 in Campbell County, Kentucky, to her parents Elijah and Mickey who preceded her in passing. The year she was born the family relocated here, to the beautiful Sierras. She came from a very large family. She has grieved the loss of many and is survived by several siblings, nieces and nephews.

Virginia, or “Joyce” as she was called by most who knew her, grew up to be a petite, but spunky beautiful woman. When she was 18, she met and married the love of her life, her devoted, hard-working husband William Gerald “Jerry” Lynch. They shared a rare love that few are fortunate enough to experience. They did everything together. They traveled all over and saw so many things.

As they settled down, they enjoyed quieter times; gardening, going for walks and just spending time together. They took care of each other. Mom loved flowers, especially unique ones, but her favorites were lilies. Dad loved making her happy and built her a special lily garden that provided her with hours and hours of enjoyment. Of all of the joys they shared, though, their greatest was their family and watching that family grow.

Mom was a wonderful mother to her son Dennis (PeeWee), married to Cindy, daughter Cawny, married to Eugene, and her youngest son, Jerry. She was a loving grandmother to Patrick, Robert, Heather, Lucas, Jared, Savannah, Cory, Waylon, Melissa and Kaelee. She was thrilled with her great-grandchildren, Blake, Jadeyn, Peyton, Emma, Connor, Hudson, Sabrina, Wyatt and Silas. She will forever be in the hearts of her many descendants, relatives and lifelong friends.

Graveside services will be held at Oakhill Cemetery, 40188 Highway 41, Oakhurst, on Monday, Nov. 14 at 2 p.m. She will be laid to rest near her father as she had wished.

Thank you to everyone who has shown love and support to our family during this difficult time.
