Lynda Lambert Sanders

June 29, 1943 — June 23, 2021

Our beloved Lynda Lambert Sanders left us in the early evening hours of Wednesday, June 23, 2021. She was 77 years old.

Born in Newnan, Georgia on June 29, 1943, Lynda was the daughter of the late John D. and Sara Jo Reynolds. She attended Warner Robins High School until she was severely injured in an automobile accident in tenth grade. Lynda persevered, however, and went on to earn her GED. Through the years, she worked in many different vocations including: the Naval Ordnance Plant, Shoney’s, Holiday Inn, Standard American, Robins Telephone and Cable Company, Cox Cable, Oldham’s, HEA Credit Union, and finally, for the Centerville Water Department, from where she retired.

She is survived by her loving husband, James “Hoyt” Sanders; children, Tia “Baige” Childree, Laurie Carol Nolan and James Alan “Jim” Sanders; four grandchildren; two great-grandchildren; brothers, Johnny Reynolds (Nancy) and Dan Reynolds (Laurie); sister, Carol Jordan; sisters-in-law, Sue Ellen Odom (Glen) and Vivian Ellington; and several nieces and nephews.
