Lynda Layle Obituary
Lynda (McCullick) Layle Lynda Layle passed away on Saturday, January 19, 2013 at Christopher House in Austin, TX, after a long courageous battle with cancer. Born in Austin, Lynda attended St. Andrews Episcopal School and Austin High School before graduating from the University of Texas, at Austin. She was an active community volunteer for Austin Aqua Festival, Chigger Fest, Fiesta at Laguna Gloria Art Museum, and CASA. Lynda's professional pursuits included sales, decorating, fashion, and teaching; she was also a gifted storyteller, and a talented and prolific artist, producing beautiful paintings, sculpture, and commissioned pencil portraits as well as original writings and elaborate costumes. Above all Lynda was an adventurer, traveling the world and exploring her beloved Texas Hill Country. She celebrated her Lone Star heritage and upbringing by enjoying her state's lakes and beaches, and cheering on the Texas Longhorns. Surrounded by family, friends, and a variety of cherished pets throughout her life, Lynda will be sorely missed. Her family is grateful for the love and care Lynda received during her illness - she was timeless, and will be forever young. Lynda Layle was preceded in death by her father, James H. McCullick, Sr. She is survived by her treasured daughter Brettany Boozer; parents Lael Cater Seagert and George Seagert; aunts Barbara Cater Wilson and Barbara McCullick LeMond; siblings Jim McCullick, Jr., Tracey McCullick, and Elena Coates; niece Loryn McCullick and nephews Will McCullick, Henry Wilcoxon and Glenn Wilcoxon; and a large extended family of cousins and friends. In lieu of flowers the family requests donations to Hospice Austin, Austin Pets Alive, Greenpeace, or The Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd. A memorial service celebrating Lynda's life is scheduled at The Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd (3201 Windsor Rd., Austin, TX 78703, 512-476-3523) on Saturday, February 16, 2013 at 2:00 PM. A reception in the Parish Hall follows the service. In honor of Lynda's flair, please wear your brightest colors in her memory.
