Lynda Mills Obituary

Lynda Kay Mills joined her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in Heaven on February 8, 2024, following an extended illness. She was the mother of three boys: Paul, Timothy, and Mark Cannon (Shannon).

Lynda is survived by her precious grandchildren, Rachel Cannon & Emily Cannon, and Makaylee, Zachary, Natalynn, & Olivia Cannon. Also, her two brothers, Ric (Jennie), and Michael (Lisa) Penner. Lynda was pre-deceased by her son Timothy in infancy, and her father and mother: Fred and Norma Penner.

Lynda graduated from Putnam City High School in 1966, then attended the University of Oklahoma. She held employment with several insurance companies. Later she worked for the State of Texas and the City of San Antonio before moving back to Oklahoma City after her retirement.

Loving and kind, Lynda was happy to serve others. She was a wonderful daughter, mother, sister, and grandmother, and a supportive, caring person who always thought of others before herself. She attended Baptist Temple in Oklahoma City for many years, where she taught Sunday School and sang in the choir. More recently, Lynda enjoyed attending services at Life Church in Oklahoma City. She also enjoyed watching the ministries of Joel Osteen and Joyce Meyer. Lynda’s heart for service knew no bounds, and in addition to church activities, she volunteered her time to hospitals, and tutored children via Whiz Kids, an organization that was very dear to her. She also regularly donated to her favorite animal rescue charities.

When she did take time for herself, Lynda loved going to the movies, usually to see a romantic comedy. She also loved binge-watching Law and Order, and rarely missed an episode of The Bold and the Beautiful. With a lifelong fondness for anything feline, Lynda always had at least a couple of cats around to spoil, most recently Maddie, and Daisy. Most of all, Lynda enjoyed spending quality time with the people she loved, especially her sons, Paul, and Mark. Her love for them was unconditional, and everlasting. She will be greatly missed by her family but will enjoy the peace of her new Heavenly home, where she will finally be reunited with her precious son, Timothy, and with Norma, her mother and best friend.
