Lynda attended Mark Twain Elementary, Hoover Junior High, and Lakewood High School, in Long Beach. She was a graduate of Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma, Washington. In 1980, Lynda married Brian Silvey. Fourteen years of marriage, and Brian's employment with Cargill allowed Lynda the opportunity to live in cities throughout the U.S. Lynda forged many dear friends along the way. Following in her father's footsteps, Lynda built a successful career in corporate finance, working for NERCO, Merix Corporation, and GrainCorp Malt in the Northwest. Relocating to San Diego county, Lynda finished her career as C.F.O. For Volcano, a Phillips Corporation. A love of music and performance was nurtured as a child at Lakewood Village Community Church, and throughout her early years in school. She continued to share her gift in high school and college. Lynda especially valued the the encouragement and instruction of Mr. Schmidt, the music director at Lakewood High School. As an adult, Lynda's professionally trained contralto voice supported performance and church choral groups in the many places she lived. Most recently, Lynda derived great joy from involvement with the San Diego Master Chorale. For the past two decades, Lynda fought breast cancer with dignity, surrounded by family and friends. She is survived by her mother Lois, sisters Joyce (Doug) Howard and Carol (Clyde) Wright, nieces and nephews Kristen and Jared, Michael and Christine and their spouses and children, along with countless friends. In lieu of services in the Long Beach area, Lynda chose to have donations made to: Father Joe's Village, ASPCA, , Episcopal Release and Develop and Jacob's and Cushman's San Diego Food Bank. In Lynda's words, "If I've learned nothing else in my life, the most important things in your life are the people and the relationship you have with them."
