MILLEDGEVILLE — Lynda Sylvia Childre Kuecker passed away peacefully on the morning of Dec. 17, 2013 surrounded by her loving family.

She is survived by her parents, Jimmy Childre Sr. and Sylvia Swearingen Sams, her children, sisters and brothers. Lynda was born on Nov. 12, 1957, spent most of her childhood in Reynolds and later moved to St. Augustine, Fla. She attended Georgia Southern University and was co-owner of the family retail business, Nautilus at the Beach, for more than 30 years.

Lynda will most be remembered for her wonderful and energetic spirit, and for being a beautiful woman in both body and soul. Friends, family and even her doctors admired her enduring strength and positivity as she battled her illness. Anyone who met Lynda wanted to be around her wonderful laugh and clever sense of humor, including many of her customers who quickly became close friends of hers. She was known to have a strong spiritual faith and inspired many.

Lynda asked that her death not be mourned, but that her life be celebrated. A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 28 at the Reynolds United Methodist Church. Following her memorial service, Lynda's family will receive friends in the church social hall.
