Lynda accepted Christ at an early age and was a longtime member of St. Paul High Street Baptist Church in Martinsville, VA. She later made Worship Christian Center, Camden, DE her church home, where she gave love and received love.

She is survived by: one son, Clavon “Rico” Martin at home, two sisters, Velma Martin of Martinsville, VA and Iris Penn of Browns Summit, NC.; two brothers, Gary “Randy” Martin of Los Angeles, CA and Michael Martin of Martinsville, VA; 7 nieces and nephews; 9 grandnieces and nephews; one aunt, Ms. Ann Farrington of NJ; two uncles, Joseph Martin of Washington, DC and, William “Bill” Martin of Martinsville, VA; many cousins and her special childhood friend, Ms. Annie Holland Mahan and a host of other friends too numerous to mention.
