Ramona Lynn Emmons, our cherished wife, mother, amazing MeMe, and friend went home to be with the Lord on March 9, 2017 after a brief illness. Lynn was born December 27, 1940 in Dallas, TX. She graduated from Robert E. Lee High School, Tyler in 1959, which was the first graduating class. Lynn is preceded in death by her parents, grandparents, many aunts and uncles, with whom she loved dearly. After raising their family in Tyler, she and Don moved to Lake Palestine where they enjoyed all the lake had to offer for more than thirty years. While living there Lynn adored fishing, gardening, nature, and feeding the many birds that visited her birdfeeders. It was there where she shared her love of fishing and nature with her grandchildren. Lynn had a special touch for making an ordinary recipe grand. Her love and fondness of cooking was shared with her entire family.
