Lynda Jean Perot

May 9, 1945March 23, 2020

LYNDA HUFF PEROT MAY 9, 1945 – MARCH 23, 2020 Lynda Perot was born in Shreveport, Louisiana where she graduated from Woodlawn High School. She lived many places, including New Mexico, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Wyoming and Florida, before settling in Minden, Louisiana in the house that she loved and affectionately named “TARA “(from the movie “Gone with the Wind”). She began her early years as a Hairdresser and continued through her life as a doctor’s assistant, a pharmaceutical representative and at the age of 41, put herself through Nursing School for a career she was born to thrive in until she retired. During her time as a nurse, Lynda volunteered her time to work with AIDS patients, teens with addictions, abused children and with babies who never left the hospital. Some of her favorite memories came with being a Travel Nurse with her daughter, Shannon Mary. Lynda was an adventurer. She loved to travel and experience life, people and food, which she did mostly with her son, Greg, her partner in crime. She was always dressed in the latest fashions adorned with jewelry, wild shoes, designer purses and sunglasses…even while working in the yard. Her passion for shopping was rightfully shared with her daughter, Shellie, as it was their favorite thing to do for JOY. Lynda loved and cared about people. She was always reaching out to grab a hand to hold or a neck to hug. She had kind, loving words to give to everyone. Upon meeting her, you would remember her radiant and affectious smile, her loving nature and her fabulous sense of humor…even through the tragedy and excruciating pain she suffered and endured daily with her cancer. Lynda was a strong and independent woman with an “I can do it” attitude about everything. She did not just “accept” things…she was creative and resourceful and did grand things with very little. She had very few, if any, restrictions on her life. Lynda dedicated and devoted her soul to the loves of her life, her house and her beautiful yard. She was a Master Gardener and you could pass by anytime and find her in her yard…by the way, you could also come up on the porch and join her for a glass of wine for “Dilly-Dilly” time. If you knew her…you loved her….and…she loved you. She will be in the hearts and memories of many. We were blessed by her presence in this world…now the angels are blessed with her presence in heaven. We love you mom!

Lynda Perot is survived by her CHILDREN: Greg Turner (Vidalia, Louisiana), Shellie Padilla (Denver, Colorado) and Shannon Mary Quevedo (Ocala, Florida). GRANDCHILDREN: Megan Turner (Charlotte, North Carolina), Ashley Padilla (Littleton, Colorado), Amber Padilla (Lakewood, Colorado), Alyssa Padilla (Los Angeles California), Geoffrey Radtke (Charlotte, North Carolina), Denica Hetznecker (Clermont, Florida), and Blaise Hetznecker (Daytona Beach, Florida ).

It takes a while to try to express, in inadequate language, the loss of an Absolute Friend. That’s what my “Perottie” was to Abdolute Friend. I will always treasure all my memories of her, from work at Dubuis to my visits to Minden as a hospice nurse when I would stop by for a quick chat and usually leave with plants of some kind! I know our other friend, Linda Joy (aka “Joy to the World”), is happy to see her again. Lynda gave Joy that name as we had so many “Linda”’s working at Dubuis at that time and that is how Lynda came to be known as “Perot” or “Perottie”. We had such fun with even the simplest things! I will miss her as long as I live!

There were so many lessons my Mammal taught me over the years, from the importance of lipstick to having the right shoe for every occasion, but the most important one was the joy of filling your dining room table with people you love and cooking for them. Some of my best memories will always be dinner parties at Mammal’s and gathering around the table full of love. Mammal, shine on you wild woman, I love you and miss you more than I could ever express.

First met Lynda in Sunbury PA when both of our children were small. Both families moved to Wyoming when the KNIE radio station was founded in 1973. I have remained in Wyoming as well as 3 of my 5 children, the other 2 live in Denver area. The last time I saw Lynda was in Littleton, texting n Facebook filled the gap.

Lynda was a champion of kindness, strength and love. She will remain your champion, but we will all miss this incredible women. Love and prayers Greg, Shellie and Shannon, to you and your families. God Bless.

My traveling buddy, my loving sweet daughter, Lynda. I will miss her so much. She was a master gardner; we went to all the flower shows together. She loved the beautiful flowers. Never forget our traveling adventures.

She wanted to practice with a new pistol she had so we invited her out to our house to use a small range I have set up. Shannon came too, and we all ended up firing several firearms and had a really good time. She seemed always in such a good mood and a pleasure to be around. She will be missed greatly.

From shopping at her favorite store TJMaxx, to sharing plants from her yard, to painting together and many more fond memories I have of her, I will always have her in my heart.

When I moved from California, Momma came to Twain Harte to help me move. I was driving my truck and she was driving my Mini Cooper. She would fall behind and I would have to call her on the radio. I’m looking would be what she said. We went thru Mojave Desert, Flagstaff, Showlow, Silver City, Hatch and El Paso. We ate some of the best Mexican food. We saw a dramatic change in landscapes. We didn’t make it to Pie Town, but she sure wanted to go back. She talked about it for weeks. She was my best friend. I will miss her dearly.
