Lynda K. Gomillion
November 24, 1953 – September 29, 2020
Lynda K. Gomillion, 66, of Brooksville, Florida was called home Monday, September 29, 2020. Born in Tarpon Springs, Florida to Robert and Maxine Kolean, Lynda was a strong follower of Christ Jesus and will be deeply missed by her loving family and friends.
She is survived by her mother (Maxine Kolean) ; her loving husband Wayne E. Gomillion; son Anthony W. Gomillion (Julie); daughter Vanessa Ann Gomillion; sister Barbara White (Ray); brothers Tom Kolean (Terrie), Dennis Kolean and granddaughter, Hayli Gomillion.
Lynda’s final days were tranquil and spent surrounded by family and friends that she touched in some small way throughout her short and memorable life. Lynda was an active and compassionate person who loved traveling to new places and meeting new friends. She was athletic and enjoyed downhill skiing and excelled in bowling, tennis and pickle ball and had a soft heart for animals.
Over the years Lynda made significant contributions in her personal and professional relationships, by being supportive, loyal and encouraging. She was the love of my life and I’ve been truly blessed to enjoy so many heart felt memories and wonderful years of her devoted and loving companionship. Lynda recently retired from Moore County Schools, where she was affectionately known as Millie. A member of Christ Community Church in Pinehurst, NC, Lynda was quick to share her faith the Good News of the Gospel as found in John 3:16. While Lynda’s life may seem too short to many, those who were touched by her understood that the quality of existence far exceeds the quantity of time in which we live. Her smile and gentle ways put people at ease and brought much joy to those that knew her. We love you, we miss you sweetie and look forward to reuniting with you in Heaven.
Memorial service will be 10:45AM Tuesday, November 24, 2020 located at Brooksville Wesleyan Church, 22319 Cortez Blvd, Brooksville, Florida 34601.

Wayne and Family,
I just heard today about Lynda's passing. I'm so very sorry. My heart aches for you all. Lynda always said she was like a mom to me.... And she was. She was always interested in my life struggles and how my kids were doing. When my kids would call work asking for me and I wasn't available, she would tell them it was ok to do someone or yes, you can eat that for a snack. Then after she would let me know she gave them permission. This world will miss her huge heart.
All my love,
Tracy Franklin with Myers Mortuary

I am one year younger than linda but grew up since I was about 8 years in old grove subdivision. She was always nice and friendly. I got in touch with her thru her brother a couple of years ago and became FB friends. Will miss her. RIP

Just wanted to let you know that I am thinking of your family. I am a bookkeeper with Moore County Schools and worked with Millie and went to workshops with her too. She was a sweet person and I enjoyed her friendship. May God grant you peace during these difficult times.

I was shocked to hear of Lynda’s passing. We were lucky to have been high school friends and were cheerleaders together. I was happy to connect again on FB. She was a bright light in our lives. My thoughts and prayers are with her husband, children and family. May you find peace Lynda and know that you were loved and will be missed.

Add "not a complainer" to her list of qualities. Lynda and I in recent years became friends on Facebook. I knew her in high school and she was the same bubbly person, always positive and friendly. She never shared that she had cancer so this is a complete shock to me. Did I not bother to ask her how she was doing? As a lifelong health care provider who is very accustomed to discussing peoples' medical issues I will always remember this as a fail on my part. God Bless you, Lynda. Thank you so much for renewing our friendship and sharing with me how much you loved your travels out west. Deepest sympathy to your loving family. You will be missed tremendously by a wide circle of people. RIP

Millie, or MILLLLLLZZZZZ, as I referred to her, was my "one in a Milz" friend, coworker, and cancer survivor partner. I made her laugh and she taught me to see the different side of everything. We were force to be reckoned with working together and had our own secret code. I sat with her in the floor of her office when she was so sick she couldn't even hold her head up, and I have danced a happy dance with her when she felt invincible. I am absolutely devastated that we lost a truly beautiful soul here on earth, but I know Lynda is having a great time and is keeping a birds eye view on the rest of us! She has always held a special place in my heart, and I am so thankful our paths crossed and I got to know such a special lady!

That smile of hers shined like the brightest beacon ever and she enveloped everyone she met with such warmth. We knew her and Wayne both to be extremely kind, generous and very attentive to other peoples personal preferences and needs.
As dog lovers extraordinaire, Max and I shared Lynda's strong human-animal bond and Max teased her often about how devoted she was to her cats.
We are so thankful they visited us not long ago before they moved to Florida. We can't express how very much we will miss seeing her again.
At least we know some day we will rejoice in rejoining with her.
