Lynda Stevenson, 76, of Easley, a warm and loving woman, passed away on January 4th, 2024, leaving behind a legacy of kindness, selflessness, and culinary expertise. Born on January 23rd, 1947, to James and Sarah Reece, Lynda graced the world with her presence and touched the lives of many.
Lynda was not only an excellent cook but also found great joy in preparing meals for her family. Gathering around the table was a cherished tradition in their home, allowing them to share laughter, stories, and create lasting memories together. Her culinary skills were nothing short of remarkable, as she poured love and passion into every dish she prepared.
With a master’s degree in business administration, Lynda possessed an undeniable intellect and a thirst for knowledge. But despite her academic achievements, Lynda chose to focus on raising her children with unparalleled dedication. She willingly put her career on hold, sacrificing her own ambitions to ensure that her children grew into wonderful individuals. Lynda's selflessness shone through every smile and moment spent nurturing their minds and hearts.
Compassion flowed abundantly from Lynda's heart. Throughout her life, she opened her home to those in need, extending a helping hand without hesitation. Whether it was providing shelter or offering support to those experiencing hardships, Lynda remained firm in her belief that we should always be of service to others.
One of Lynda's passions was sharing her knowledge through teaching cooking programs at Furman University's OLLI program. She wholeheartedly believed that education was a precious life skill that empowered others to achieve their goals. As a lifelong learner herself, she found immense satisfaction in helping others embark on their educational journeys.
Beyond her remarkable cooking abilities and dedication to education, Lynda carried within her heart a deep faith in God. This belief influenced many aspects of her life and led her on numerous mission trips where she selflessly offered her time and love to those in need. She traveled to Israel, Moldova, Argentina, Venezuela, Nicaragua, and multiple US cities to love on people.
Lynda leaves behind her loving husband of 16 years, Allen Stevenson, of Easley, SC, as well as her two children, Meredith Glynn (Chris) of Easley, SC, and Andrew Sentell (Caroline) of Piedmont, SC. She also leaves behind her two stepdaughters, Becky Hunt of Greensboro, NC, and Sarah Stevenson (John Ayling) of Clyde, NC. She will perhaps be most missed by those who referred to her as “Granna,” her sweet grandchildren, Ellie and Elijah Glynn and Jack and Charlie Sentell, as well as numerous step-grandchildren and step-great-grandchildren. Also left is her sister, Oleita Evette of Landrum, SC, and her niece and Nephew, Melissa and David Evette of Landrum, SC.
Lynda Stevenson will be remembered as a woman who lived her life with unwavering love, compassion, and devotion. Her family, friends, and all who had the privilege of knowing her will forever cherish the memories they created together. Lynda's spirit will continue to inspire others to be kinder, more giving, and embrace the joy of learning.
