Lynda was born July 20, 1943 in Augusta, Georgia. Her parents were William Henning Haynie and Caroline Carroll Haynie. She lived her first five years in North Augusta, South Carolina until her family moved to Atlanta. In the mid-1950s the family moved to Tallahassee where she lived most of her life. She graduated from Leon High School in 1962 and then attended Jacksonville University.While working part-time during college, she met her would-be husband Bob Hanson. They were married November 24, 1965. She retired from the Florida Department of Health after a long and rewarding career in public health where she worked with many dedicated and talented professionals.
Lynda's favorite times were those spent with her family and participating in the lives of her granddaughters.For thirty years, Bob and Lynda enjoyed as much time as they could, at their mountain cabin in North Carolina. She cherished beginning each morning in prayer and the study of God's word, seeking understanding of how it applied to her life. Right up to the end of her battle with cancer, she gained and felt the loving support of her family, friends and her special church family at Trinity United Methodist Church.
