Lynda M. Knights WINN- Lynda M. Knights, 55, of Winn, passed away peacefully August 17, 2020, surrounded by her loving family. She was born to the late Bernard Austin and Thelma Austin-Hamilton, October 24 1964, in Lincoln. Lynda graduated from East Grand High School in 1983.

Lynda was an amazing cook, who loved family gatherings and holidays. Her smile lit up the room, with a laugh that just had a way of making you happy. She cared deeply about her family, and made a huge impact on everyone who was blessed to be a part of her life. Lynda also had a voice that was simply sent from heaven and she loved to sing. Whether it was singing along with her husband while he played guitar, or in the car with her daughter, her songs brought joy that will be treasured always. All of these things, and so much more will be missed dearly by all who knew and loved her.

A graveside service will be held Sunday August 30th, at 3pm at Wytopitlock Cemetery. A celebration of her life will be announced at a later date. The family asks that in lieu of flowers, you consider making a donation to the Lafayette Cancer Center 33 Whiting Hill Road Brewer, ME 04412

This is such a beautiful picture. Ever since I was little I always thought you were the coolest person I’d ever known. From your Beatles records in the 70s to the cozy way you decorated your home as an adult and always made everyone feel at home and welcome. Your laugh and your smile always made me laugh and smile. I will miss you so much.

Young Rollie grew up in the neighborhood near Tom's Mom and Dad and was well known by them at home and at school as were his parents. He went to school at the local school where Tom's Mom was an ed tech for many years. We are so very sorry to hear he lost this beautiful girl he has loved for so many years. Our hearts hurt for him, and for his Mom and Dad, and for her family. Prayers go out for all.
