On February 17, 1941, Lynda was born in Mount Vernon, OH, the daughter of the late William J. and Margene L. (Derringer) Winslow.  She graduated from Mount Vernon High School in the Class of 1959.

In her younger days, Lynda worked as a hairdresser at Marinello Beauty Shop in Mount Vernon and later purchased the business.  After having her younger children, she decided to sell the beauty shop to stay home and take care of her precious family.  She was very active with her children as they grew up and found a way to keep with up all of their different sporting events.  She enjoyed doing the same thing with all of her grandchildren.

A woman of faith, Lynda attended the Gay Street United Methodist and the Mulberry Street United Methodist Churches in Mount Vernon for many years.

Lynda was involved with many Mother’s Clubs over the years, enjoyed riding and taking care of horses, and going dancing on the weekends.  She will be remembered as a fun loving woman with a big heart who would do anything to help people.

Lynda will be dearly missed by her daughter, Kimberly Clay, of Edison; two sons: Antonio (Julia) DePolo of Cardington, Dominic DePolo of Ashley; and six grandchildren: Tyler, Tanner, Andrea, Aden, Justin and Brendon.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her brother, Keith Winslow.

  • I’ve missed my friend for a long time. What a fun person she was. And how fortunate she was to have such a loving, caring daughter. May she be happy with God in heaven.

  • I’ve known Lynda for many years, in fact her first husband (Kim’s Dad) introduced me to my late husband & we had 44 wonderful years. I loved Lynda very much & had loads of fun for a long time. I didn’t get to see her as much as I would have liked to in the past years but she was a wonderful long time friend. My prayers go out to Kim & the family. Take care Kim & please stay in touch.
    Love You,
    Jan Lower.

  • Dear Kim, I have thought about your mother a lot lately, everytime I think of Suellen who I miss so much. What good friends they were and what good times we all had! I hope you are well Kim, I would love to see you. I still live on the Upper Fredericktown ,Amity Road. My thoughts and prayers are with you!

  • Kim, I am so sorry for your loss, I worked with Lynda at the Marinello beauty shop in Mt. Vernon in 1963 -1964. There was a time that I stayed at your house, you were about 5. I was part of the family for a short time. We always had a great time at work and even during social. I ran into her at Walmart and talked to her for a short while and every time I went through Edison, I thought about finding her. I am so sorry I didn’t.
    I am also sorry I can’t come to the funeral, I just found out today and I have other appointments scheduled. Please Contact me, I would love to hear more about her later life. If you are on facebook you can reach me there as well as email

  • Kim and Family,
    So sorry to hear about your mom. She was a wonderful lady, full of fun and a zest for life. She was a very giving and loving person. I enjoyed doing her hair for many years and also had her work with me some. She was so fortunate to have you Kim to take care of her and help her go places. She will be greatly missed!
