Obituary for Lynda Lambeth Milton


Lynda Lambeth Milton, 89, a resident of 116 Kings Grant Lane, Greenwood, SC, passed away Wednesday, November 15, 2017 at Wesley Commons Health Care Center.

Born in Decatur, Georgia to Auburn C. and Frances Lambeth, she attended Decatur Girls High, and received her B.S. in Business Administration from Georgia State College for Women in 1949. During her lifetime Lynda was a devoted member of 3 Presbyterian Churches, Oakhurst Presbyterian Church in Decatur, GA; Decatur Presbyterian Church, Decatur, GA; and First Presbyterian Church, Greenwood, SC.

Lynda was a loving and devoted wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, a role which was her greatest joy. She loved flowers and sports, especially tennis and baseball, and most enjoyed sharing those activities with her family. Having raised three sons, she often said that her epitaph should simply read, “I tried”.

She was preceded in death by her loving husband of 61 years, E. Ben Milton. She is survived by a brother, Auburn C. Lambeth and wife, Linda, of Jackson, MS; three sons, Thomas H. Milton and wife, Suellen, of Greensboro, NC; Kenneth L. Milton and wife, Susan, of Williamsburg, VA; and Timothy B. Milton of Greenwood, SC; four grandchildren, Tricia Milton Shaw and husband Doug of Greensboro, NC, Riegel Milton Vanore and husband, Andrew of Greensboro, NC, Benjamin Jacob Milton of Charlottesville, VA, and William Thomas Milton of Charleston, SC; six great- grandchildren, Kristine, Thomas and Ben Shaw, Maria, Andrew and Lola Vanore, all of Greensboro, NC.

A visitation will be held Sunday, November 19, 2017 at Blyth Funeral home from 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm. A graveside service will follow at 2:30 pm at Oakbrook Memorial Park.

The family expresses deepest thanks to the caregivers at Wesley Commons Health Care Center. Also, to Mrs. Ella Cooke , our heartfelt thanks for her loving care of Mom.
