Lyndora was the proud, devoted matriarch of not only the Sauls family, but of Magee’s Creek Baptist Church. She loved her husband, family, the Lord, and her church. She served as the church’s clerk and kept the children in the church’s nursery for over 60 years, watching many of them grow into adults. She was special to all of them.

She was a gifted and creative seamstress, often creating her own patterns when she could not find one. Lyndora was also a talented hand quilter. She tatted beautiful lace pieces and ornaments and often demonstrated her skill at the Washington Parish Fair. Her legendary chocolate pie and blueberry yum yum is known far and wide. She was beloved by all who knew her.

She was preceded in death by her Parents, Rodney Smith & Lena Mae Ball.

She is survived by her Husband of 65 years, Doyle Sauls, of Jayess; one Son, Steve & Janet Sauls, of Baton Rouge, Louisiana; one Granddaughter, Julie & Edwin Nolan, of Baton Rouge, Louisiana; one Great Grandson, Emmett Noland, of Baton Rouge, Louisiana; and one Brother, Glen Smith, of Quarts Hill, California; and numerous Nieces and Nephews.
