Lynda Lucille Myers Newcomb, 103, beloved wife, mother, grandmother, sister and friend, passed away peacefully on June 16, 2015 in Houston, Texas, after a long and wonderful life. She is preceded in death by her loving husband, Carey Ruff Newcomb Sr., her son Carey Newcomb, Jr. and his wife Betty. Lynda is survived by her son Harvey Ray and wife Dianna Faulkner Newcomb, her daughter Nancy Jane Owen, 12 grandchildren, 34 great grandchildren and 24 great great grandchildren.
On November 8, 1911, Lynda was born to John Samuel Myers and Ellen Gertrude Ingram Myers in Greenville, Texas. After a long career working at JC Penny and Montgomery Ward, she and Carey retired to Lufkin, Texas. This was a move that delighted her grandchildren because they were the beneficiaries of long memorable summer vacations spent with doting grandparents. Shortly after her husband passed away, she moved back to Houston to be closer to her family. Her favorite mantra was, “idle hands are the devil’s workshop.” Lynda remained busy spending most of her time gardening, taking care of the animals and volunteering. In 1993, she received special recognition from The State of Texas House of Representatives commending her for her service and dedication as a volunteer with Memorial Hospital Northwest.
Ms. Newcomb embraced life—its laughter and its sorrow—and was dedicated to making the most of every experience that came her way. All holidays were special and every family celebration sacred.
Intelligent, creative and adventuresome, Lynda wanted to see what was around the corner or over the next mountain. She toured most of the major attractions throughout the United States and also traveled to China, Japan, Europe, Australia, Alaska and Antigua.
On June 16th we said good-by to a unique, one-of-a-kind lady, but to those of us who knew and loved her, our memories will last for generations to come. The family suggests that those who may so be inclined, in lieu of flowers, to consider a memorial remembrance to your favorite cause.
