Captolia Lynch

December 21, 1938 — April 7, 2022


Loving mother, Captolia Marie Tollison Lynch, passed away and joined Jesus in heaven on April 7, 2022 in Schulenburg, Texas.   She was 83 years old.

Captolia was born to Paul Ernest and Julia Lavada Boles Tollison  on December 21, 1938 in Pampa, Texas. She was the youngest of the family which included her brothers Paul Ernest and Robert E Lee which proceeded her in death.  She attended the Borger and Pampa Schools.   She married Billy Joe Lynch on August 15, 1953 in Pampa, Texas.  They were married 58 years before her husband’s death. She graduated from West Texas A & M University in 1990 with a degree in education.  She worked for the White Deer ISD, Pampa ISD and St. Vincent Catholic Elementary School.  She worked for Marie Foundations in Pampa where she made many good friends.  She also worked for Coronado Nursing Home and Texas Department of Human Services.    She was a member of First Baptist Church of Skellytown where she participated in many activities and taught her love for the Lord to children and adults.  She loved to cook for her family and enjoyed time with all her extended family. She was often requested to cook fried chicken, tacos, and chicken fried steak for family and friends.  She was an avid seamstress, reader, gardener, and lover of music.  Her favorite statement to people was she was blessed by the Lord and so thankful.  Now that Captolia has passed into the arms of our Lord, we should remind ourselves that while this is the end of Captolia’s physical life on Earth, it’s the beginning of an eternal and beautiful journey for her.
