“God loves you and I love you” . . . a motto Cynthia Lingle abided by her entire life. All she ever wanted to do was let God’s love flow to others through her, and it showed. Everytime she answered her phone you would hear, “God loves you and I love you.” She was a constant worker in church, showing God’s love teaching children in Sunday School, Vacation Bible School, and Children’s Choir. But her ultimate love was music . . . piano in particular. She played piano at several churches faithfully for over fifty years as well as at local nursing homes for their weekly church services. She will always be remembered as a loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and faithful friend by all those who knew her. Her smile brightened everyone’s day.

She was preceded in death by her Parents, Benjamin & Gladys Ammons; and one Brother, Randall Ammons.

She is survived by her Husband, Robert Lingle; two Sons, Don Fikes (Sarah), James Fikes; two Daughters-in-Love, Sheila Gail Burress (Buck), Patsy Dew (Buddy); five Grandchildren, Karalina D. Fikes, Angelica N. Fikes, Laurie, Renee, Ryan; one Brother, Basil Ammons (Frankie); one Sister, A. Celeste Geshwindt (Gary); and numerous Cousins and other family members.

Honorary pallbearers will be Basil Ammons, Greg Ammons, Scott Fortner, Wayne Geshwindt, Gary Geshwindt, the Deacons of Cedar Grove Baptist Church, and the Deacons of Big Ridge Baptist Church.

Hathorn Funeral Home in Columbia is in charge of the arrangements. Family and friends may sign an online guestbook at
