Lyndall Harvey

On Wednesday, October 17, 2018, Lyndall Harvey, wife, mother, sister, aunt, grandmother, great-grandmother, and friend, passed away at the age of 80 years. Lyndall will be forever remembered by her husband of sixty-three years, Tom Harvey; and their surviving children, Tom Harvey and his wife, Rita; Tim Harvey and his wife, Tonjia; Ted Harvey and his wife, Krystale; and Laura Scoggins and her husband, Kerry. She is survived by ten grandchildren, Rachael Davis, Sarah Cole, Trey Harvey, Ashley Burton, Melissa Stacy, Rebecca Howe, Bobby Harvey, Billy Harvey, Clint Scoggins, and Patricia Harvey; nine great-grandchildren; and siblings, Sylvia Strother, Babette Breaux, and Keaton Landry.

Lyndall was born on December 9, 1937. Her parents were Isadore(deceased) and Flavia (deceased) Landry of Silsbee, Texas. She went to Silsbee High School and married her high school sweetheart and soul-mate in 1955. Together, the couple and their children traveled the world as she supported her husband’s career in the United States Air Force. She was a woman of strong character and commitment to her family. When her husband, Tom, was deployed to isolated or dangerous locations, she maintained the family unit and wrote a daily letter to her husband detailing the events of each day. Upon retirement from the military in the late 1970’s, the couple lived in Beaumont, Texas for decades.

Her greatest sorrow in life was the death of her infant daughter, Sylvia Ann in 1968, while the family was stationed at Clarke Air Force Base in the Philippine Islands. Circumstances prevented her from attending her child’s funeral in the United States. Fifty years later, Lyndall still grieved the loss.

Her greatest triumph in life was her love for her family. She and Tom attended countless concerts, athletic competitions, birthday parties, graduations, picnics, marriages, plays, and other events important in the lives of their children, grandchildren, extended family members, and friends. No one loved a family party more than Lyndall. She especially loved Christmas and insisted on a large party at her house every year. She always had a gift for everyone. She personally handcrafted many of the gifts for each person.

Lyndall was a member of the Christian Fellowship Worship Center. She was a life-time member and past matron of Wisteria Chapter #823, Order of the Eastern Star.

Lyndall is preceded in death by her father, Isadore Landry; her mother, Flavia Landry; her father-in-law, J.F. Harvey; her mother-in-law, Annie Laura Harvey; her brother, I.W. Landry; and her daughter, Sylvia Ann Harvey.

Pallbearers are Trey Harvey, Billy Harvey, Clint Scoggins, Charlie Davis, Brad Howe, Jonathan Cole, and Jeff Franks, and honorary pallbearers are Bobby Harvey and J.T. Franks.

    Tommy, I’m so sorry about your loss. Lyndall and I have been friends for a long time. We enjoyed visiting each Friday while I fixed her hair. She was so much more than just a customer, she was a friend. I know you will miss her, as we will on Friday. All of you are in my prayers. Ruth
