Donna Lynn Myers Tynes, a loving mother, daughter, sister, aunt, niece, cousin, and friend, died Thursday, August 1, 2013. Family surrounded her as she let loose her grasp on their hands and fell into the arms of the Father. Also, there to greet her on the other side were those who had gone before her - Freddy, her dad, her grandparents, and many loving uncles and aunts. Donna was born on Galveston Island. That gritty sand and salty air got into her soul to develop her personality. She loved lying in the sun, listening to the waves, while gossiping with her family on annual beach trips. And, like a jellyfish, she could give a painful sting if you upset, threatened, or frightened her! She loved her family dearly! Her Mama, Bobbie, spoiled her as a child then paid for that into adulthood! Bobbie loved her Donna and Donna loved her Mama. The two were alike in many ways, which lead to the normal mama-daughter strife, but in the end, those similarities bonded them together for eternity! Donna always said that there wasnt a thing that her mama couldnt tend to. She always asked Bobbie for her opinion. Donna may not have always liked what Bobbie said, but she always wanted to know what Bobbie thought! Donna was very lucky to have Bobbie holding her as she entered and left this world! The relationship between Donna and her daughter Amber was one of those things that prove God has a sense of humor! Their love was as strong as their personalities and they butted heads from time to time. But, they were always sure of the love they shared and very thankful for each other. Amber grew up with a lifetime of practical jokes pulled by Donna. But she also received those life lessons that only a mother can teach a child. In the end, Amber cared for, nurtured and gave the most important medicine a person battling illness needs, the healing gift of presence. Donna was always proud of the person that Amber was, and prouder still of the person of flowers or food, please make memorial contributions in the name of Donna Tynes to the
and the Humane Society of Southeast Texas.
