Lynne Dickens Vammen, 91, passed away on Wednesday, March 24, 2021, peacefully leaving her home to be with the Lord. Lynne had demonstrated during her lifetime a very positive attitude. Her primary objectives were that of being a good mother and to raise her family in accordance with God's eternal plan of salvation, that it was important to her that having a Christian lifestyle would lead them toward a bright future and for generations to come.

Lynne was born June 2, 1929, in Little Rock to parents Roy Harwood Dickens and Violet Boyce Dickens, though her beloved hometown was Texarkana.

She was a lifetime member of First United Methodist Church of Texarkana, Arkansas, eventually serving as a Sunday school teacher, a choir member , and as a Life member of both the Administrative Board and United Methodist Women. Lynne served her community through deep involvement in the Junior League of Texarkana, American Red Cross, TRAHC, Texarkana Museums System, and as a Life member of PTA.

Lynne joined Dr. Reuel E. Vammen in marriage on March 23, 1952 at the Boyce family home on East Sixth Street. Lynne and Reuel celebrated 69 years of wonderful marriage on the day prior to her death. They united their lives to become fabulous parents. Their enduring love has set a remarkable example for family and friends to remember.

Lynne Vammen was a lady. Tough, outspoken,, but always a lady. My heart hurts with news of her passing onto Heaven, but I know she is up there rearranging everything with grace and elegance. She , along with her family, have always been dear, dear friends. Love to all of you and may the Good Lord wrap His loving arms around all of you. Thinking of you and praying for you, Bunny Dees

Sonny and I are so thankful that we were able to visit with Lynne and Reuel last week. She has been a precious cousin - I'm blessed to have "married" them, as she used to call it. Thank you to Reuel, Sonny, and David for all of the wonderful pictures. We send our love and sympathy.

Lynn was an acquaintance, a member of the neighborhood I enjoyed meeting— a lovely person. And then one day she became a relation - one I enjoyed meeting. We also were both grandparents waiting at the hospital for a first born to arrive along with two other grandparents.

Mrs. V, what a great lady! Growing up in Texarkana and with son David as one of my best friends, I, along with some of our other running buddies, would refer to her as “Mom”! We were blessed to have her in our lives. To Dr. Vammen, David and the rest of the family, Barbara and I send big hugs and much love. Our comfort is knowing we will see her again and it will be a glorious reunion! Jimmy and Barbara Livesay

One of the sweetest people I have ever known. Will be missed by many. She’s going to be a very special angel in heaven. Give hugs to my mom “Joyce” and take care of one another. Will miss seeing you when I make my visits to Texarkana. ♥️♥️
