Eula Faye Tomlinson Lynn departed this life on June 28, 2018 at Highland Court in Marshall, Arkansas. Her destination was Heaven. She has told her children and grandchildren about the Lord and her desire for them to be saved and to join her there. She was a member of Landmark Baptist Church and taught Bible school for a number of years.
Faye was born on November 19, 1933 in the Harness community of Stone County, Arkansas. Her parents were Emerson and Mary Branscum Tomlinson. She was one of nine children and the last child to pass away.
Faye was a wonderful homemaker for her family. She enjoyed cooking and working with her flowers. At holiday gatherings her chocolate rolls had to be evenly divided with each family. Although a homemaker, she also worked at the Marshall Nursing Home, West Market, and as a bookkeeper at Marshall Milling for a number of years. Faye dearly loved the friends she made while working at the nursing home. When working at West Market she became friends with W.T. and Bonnie West. While working at Marshall Milling she made many new friends. Her love for James and Deanna Hubbard and their children only grew. They have been a blessing to her and her children.
Faye was preceded in death by her parents; eight siblings, Alvis Tomlinson, James Lawdon Tomlinson, Haskell Tomlinson, Guy Tomlinson, Olivia Johnston, Marie Treat, Januita Tomlinson, and Willodean Tomlinson; and her husband, Zeb Lynn. She and Zeb had been married forty-nine years before his passing in October of 2000.
Survivors include three daughters; Zebbie McBride (Bill) of Harrison, Susan Ruff (James), also of Harrison and Donna Holt (Terry) of Conway.

She leaves five grandchildren; Brandon McBride (Stacy), Melanie Utley (Rick), Brock Ruff (Kim), Justin Ruff (Chris), and Morgan Richard (Dillon). She also leaves nine great grandchildren, Samuel, Sawyer, Sophia, Sarah, Spencer and Shepherd Utley, Paysley and Parker Ruff, and baby boy Richard to be born in October 2018.
