Lyndsay Joy Pullen
6/8/1986 - 11/13/2018
You could describe Lyndsay in one word...Joy...which just happened to be her middle name! In spite of her physical disabilities, there she was week-after-week in the second to the front row at First United Methodist Church...arms reaching out to her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. That's where she found her source of the Lord.

She and her husband, Mark, and their cats Meowachy and Precious, and dog, Brutus, were a happy family. But in the blink of an eye, Lyndsay died unexpectedly - the result of a pulmonary embolism - a blood clot to the lungs. Mark is lost. Lyndsay was only 32 years is so hard to believe. On Tuesday, we asked you to join together and show Mark how much he is loved by taking a huge burden off of his shoulders. You have done just that and we thank you! Please continue to pray for Mark.

Lyndsay was laid to rest on Friday, Nov. 16, 2018, at Mount Hope Cemetery. Over 70 people came to pay their respects and show Mark how much they care. Pastor Beth Ann Cook from First U.M. Church and Captain Stephen DeLacy and his wife, Liz, from the Salvation Army and friend, Elaine Hall took part in a beautiful tribute to Lyndsay's life. Following the funeral, we surpassed the $2000 goal. Any excess funds will be used to purchase a monument for her grave. A temporary marker haseen placed at her grave which is in the Barnes addition, East of the cemetery chapel.

We have received donations from several anonymous donors who stopped by our office. The First United Methodist Church will also be making a contribution. We have reduced the original goal amount of $2000 to reflect these gifts made outside of this Tribute page. You are welcome to stop by our office to drop off donations as well. Again, thank you for your prayers and your generous response.
