LONDON ? On Wednesday, Aug. 8, 2018, surrounded by her loving family at her beautiful home in Mt. Sterling, Ohio, Lynda Junk, 72, passed over the rainbow and into the embrace of our heavenly Father. She fought a valiant fight with cancer.
Lynda was born on June 20, 1946 in Tiffin, Ohio to Paul and Mildred Good.
She graduated from London High School in 1964 and on Dec. 5 of that same year, she married David Junk, her soulmate of 53 years. David and Lynda were blessed with 2 children and 4 grandchildren.
Lynda earned an associate degree in criminal justice from Hocking College in 2006 and retired from the state of Ohio's Madison Correctional Institution in 2011. Lynda was a life long member of the London First United Methodist church.
Lynda had a passion to serve. Not only did she always have her door and her kitchen open to family and friends, she also opened her heart and home to foster children and foreign exchange students. She volunteered at the Madison County Food Pantry and was involved with the development of the Fresh Start Canine/Feline Program at the Madison Correctional Institution. She was also an active member of Master Gardener Volunteers
Lynda cherished her time with her children, grandchildren, family, friends (from card club friends, golf friends, and more) and her dogs (Mia and Woofie). She enjoyed world-wide travel, photography, quilting, sewing, bird watching and gardening. She also loved being involved in her family's farm operations
Lynda is survived by her mother, Mildred "GG"; her husband, David; her children, David (Natasha), and Jill (Tony Jones); her grandchildren, Kenley Eileen Jones, Max Junk, Griffin Jones and Nick Junk; her sister, Joni (Keith McKinley); and many beloved nieces and nephews.
Lynda was preceded in death by her father, Paul
Lynda and family are so grateful for the outpouring of love and support they have received from so many friends and family throughout her courageous fight.
In lieu of flowers, please plant a flower or tree in her honor or make a donation to one of her favorite charities, Loving Care Hospice and Home Health or Madison County Food Pantry, or to one of your own.
