“I highly recommend this funeral home and crematorium; when I had to make and pay for my brother’s arrangements across state lines, Evelyn Montonya, in particular, demonstrated both compassion and professionalism and made a very sad and difficult situation much easier. Many thanks.”
Lynda Kaye Briggs Shehane, 71, of Carrollton, Texas, passed away on June 20, 2023, following a courageous battle with breast cancer. Lynda was born on August 23, 1951, in McKinney, Texas to Laura Loveday. Following her mother’s death, Lynda was raised by her aunt and uncle, Raymond and Doris Loveday, and gained two “cousin-sisters” Sandra Elliott and Pat Loveday. She will be deeply missed by her loving family, faithful friends, and all the wonderful people who knew and loved her.
Lynda loved serving God by serving others. Her hands were rarely still as she was always cooking, sewing or crafting. She shared her passion for food and cooking with her children and grandchildren. Whether it was making favorite family recipes, homemade salsa and guacamole, or her annual Christmas breads, Lynda always looked forward to cooking for the ones she loved.
Lynda also loved animals and would have rescued every one of them, large and small, if possible. Her furbabies brought Lynda much happiness and they will certainly miss the love and care that Lynda gave them.
Lynda is survived by her loving husband of almost 33 years, Dr. Jerry Shehane; three daughters: Christina Gillilan and husband DaRon of Rockwall, Texas, Stacy Carroll and husband David of Flower Mound, Texas, and Laura Bass of Carrollton, Texas; stepchildren: David Shehane of Augusta, Maine, Michael Shehane and wife Melissa of College Station, Texas, and Katy Kempf and husband Josh of Rowlett, Texas; and eight grandchildren.
A celebration of Lynda’s life will be held at 10:30am on Friday, June 30, 2023, at The North Dallas Funeral Home (2710 Valley View Lane, Dallas, TX 75234).
