OBITUARY: Virginia Pickard Lynn


Mrs. Virginia Pickard Lynn of Pegram, Tennessee passed away on Wednesday, May 11, 2022, she was 87 years old.

Born in Humphreys County in the old log house on Hurricane Creek. She was the daughter of the late George Cleveland and Lucille Stringer Pickard and was preceded in death by her husband, Luther Lee Lynn; her brothers, George Edward Pickard and Elmer Pickard; her sister Ruth Pickard Tuggle.

Virginia was a faithful member of the Pegram Church of Christ for many years and read her Bible faithfully. She was a homemaker, but unknown to many, she also worked behind the scenes of Lynn Tile & Cultured Marble as bookkeeper and billing coordinator.

She loved her family fiercely and was known to her grandchildren and their friends as Nanny Lou. The back door was always open to visitors, and they could expect to be offered food before going on their way. She was proud of her Native American heritage. At a very young age, each grandchild was taught to say “blood brother” while looking at the painting of the Cherokee brave.

Survivors include her children, Sherry Lynn Stuart (Danny) of Pegram, TN, Susan Lynn Pate (Frankie) of Pegram, TN, Jeffrey Lynn (Pam) of White Bluff, TN, Wade Lynn of Kingston Springs, TN; 6 grandchildren, Brent Stuart (Carolyn), Laura Martin (Michael), Heather Smith, Jenny Sykes (Blake), Ashley Alberd (Brandon), Samantha Lynn; 10 great-grandchildren, Cara & Blake Stuart, Colin & Chloe Martin, Logan & Lila Smith, Annabelle & Knox Sykes, Raegan & Paityn Alberd.
