Lynne Roye Saylor

obit 1

Shelley Lynne Roye Saylor, 66, most recently of Waco, died Sunday, May 21, 2017 after a brave battle with Alzheimer’s.

Visitation: Friday, May 26, 2017 from 6:00PM to 8:00PM at Lake Shore Funeral Home, 5201 Steinbeck Bend in Waco.

Service of Celebration: Lynne’s life and her faith will be held at 2:00PM on Saturday, May 27, 2017 at Lake Shore Funeral Home.

Lynne was born June 2, 1950 in Gilmer, Texas to the late Reverend Mack Lynn and Mary Louise Roye. Lynne’s family lived in several areas of Texas and the world throughout her life due to her father’s ministry and missionary work. Her strong faith in God and her continued study of His word brought her through life with a zeal for helping others. Lynne deeply enjoyed sharing her story and her Christian faith with those around her, though it was very evident in how she lived her life. Lynne worked for many years as an interior designer and enjoyed applying her creativity to her work, but her true passion was her family; she was a devoted homemaker for her husband and children. Lynne married the love of her life, Bobby Don Saylor, on April 3, 1980. Together they lived in Texas, Ohio, Illinois and Colorado, before moving back to Texas in 2011 to be closer to family as Lynne’s illness progressed. Lynne was a strong woman but knew when her mind began to deteriorate. She stayed strong in her faith right to the end. A quote that was found in her bible in her handwriting was this: “A godly woman is an awesome weapon in the hand of God.” She always lived her life with faithful service to both her family and her God. Lynne was preceded in death by her father, Reverend Mack Lynn Roye and her mother, Louise Roye Ramsey.

Lynne leaves behind to cherish her memory and continue her legacy her loving husband of 36 years, Bobby Don Saylor of Waco; her daughters, Tawne Saylor Owen and husband Zack of Waco, and Victoria Lynne Queen and husband Daniel of Fort Worth; grandchildren, Austin Ausley, Madison Ausley and Preston Ausley all of Waco and Nolan Queen of Fort Worth; brothers, David Roye and wife Lois of Marshall, Rev. Daniel Roye and wife Jana of Blue Springs, MO and Mark Roye and wife Susie of San Antonio; step-sister, Brenda Phillips of Coppell; along with numerous other loving family members and friends.

Memorial donations in Lynne’s memory are requested to be sent to The Alzheimer’s Association to the Lynne Saylor Memorial Fund to further help with research.

    My deepest sympathy on the loss of your loved one. May you find comfort and hope in the words at Revelation 21:3,4 during this difficult time.

  2. My thoughts are with the family. I don’t believe I ever had the privilege of meeting Lynne. But her mother and I were first cousins on our Mother’s side of the family.
