Lynda Carol D’Heilly was born January 14, 1950, in Boston, Massachusetts to Silas Burton and Mary Elizabeth (Woodson) Taylor. In the early 1990’s Lynda moved to Annandale with her husband, Gary, where they have made their home since. In 2001, Lynda re-opened the day care center, The Learning Tree, that her husband Gary helped her maintain over the years until she was diagnosed with a brain tumor, which left her 75% blind. She attended Vision Loss Resource Center in Minneapolis where she was able to relearn daily functions, and continue life not being able to see. She won a state award for a paper she wrote and became a peer mentor to other people who are also visually impaired. Lynda was a strong beautiful woman, she always found light even on the darkest days. She remained positive and brought joy and humor to everyone who was lucky enough to cross her path.
She is survived by her husband, Gary of Annandale; daughters, Kamryn of Annandale, and Jaime of Boston; sons, Nykolas of Annandale, and Derek (Malia) of Boston; 7 grandchildren, Devin, Tatianna, Inara, Daquan, Adam, Jaden, and Jenayah; 3 great-grandchildren; brothers, Richard Taylor of New Hampshire, and Larry (Bobby) Taylor of Boston; and other family members and friends. She was preceded in death by dear family members.
