She lost her husband Joe Douglas Palmer not long ago but continued to work, thrive, prosper and serve the community. She had a love for flowers, especially sunflowers. Her husband Joe would plant a row every summer in his garden. Lynda always loved bargain shopping and dreamed of going to the unclaimed baggage center this summer.

The family would like to give a special thanks to the DeSoto Parish Sheriff ’s Office and Mansfield Police Department for their hard work and service. Also thanks to Dr. Thomas Pressley and staff for their longtime care and to the Patel family for bringing her into to their family for many years and their continued generosity.
