Lynda loved her family and was heavily involved in her children’s educational and athletic endeavors in the Loudonville-Perrysville Schools and remained a big part of their adult lives.  She was always known for bringing enough great food to feed a small army to any event.  Lynda served as a volunteer at the CE Budd and the RF McMullen schools for over 25 years and was actively involved as a volunteer with the Malabar Farm Foundation.

Lynda is survived by her husband, Dr. Robert D. Berry, whom she married on September 8, 1984; her daughter Renee Meadows, son-in-law RJ Meadows and granddaughter Harper Meadows of Gallatin, TN; her son Allen Berry and his fiancé Stefany Zorc of Gallatin, TN; her mother Sharma Bell of Kimbolton, numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins; her mother-in-law Betty Berry of Lucas and her sister-in-law Joan Berry Kalamas of Lucas.  Lynda was preceded in death by her father, Harry Bell.
