In addition to her parents, Lynette was preceded in death by one son, Charles Kenneth Hooton; one nephew, Damon Sutton. Lynette was an Optical Technician at Pearl Vision for many years and also a caregiver to many. Lynette was quite the lady. She always had her hair and make-up done, along with a stylish outfit. She always looked her best. She was funny, kind and thoughtful. She had a quick wit, loved telling jokes and pulling pranks. Lynette made the best chili and pineapple upside down cake. She loved watching “The Golden Girls”, Blanche being her favorite. But those who knew Lynette, knew she was just like Sophia with all her stories. She loved watching the Hallmark channel and listening to her oldies music and watching old concerts. Lynette loved music by Elvis, Alabama, Ronnie McDowell and Stevie Nicks. Her all-time favorite song was Kung Fu Fighting. There was never a road trip where that song wasn’t played multiple times. She loved connecting with relatives and friends from school on Facebook, looking at photos and catching up. Lynette found happiness spending time with her family, playing Candy Crush, putting together jigsaw puzzles, eating banana splits from Toni’s, and playing with her beloved cat Ozzy. Lynette will be greatly missed.
