On February 20, 2020 while at home, Mrs. Addie Lee Wilson Lynch finally took
“that trip” she has been waiting to take and is now in the presence of her
Lord.  She joins her husband Abraham Lincoln Lynch who proceeded her in
death in 2000.  Born December 18, 1918, Mrs. Lynch was a life-long native of
Polk County.  She was the daughter of the late Posey and Leona Wilson.  She
was a 1935 graduate of Sunny View School and was a leading member of the
championship girls’ basketball team.  In addition to her parents, she was
proceeded in death by a brother, John R. Wilson and a sister, Bessie Wilson.
Mrs. Lynch was an active member of Coopers Gap Baptist church as a
Christian, prayer warrior, teacher, singer, and administrator.  When she
felt she could not attend church because of her hearing difficulty, she
prayed for, supported and kept up with what was happening at church.
Addie Lee loved to have family and friends visit her.  Up to the time of her
illness she was an avid reader, a die-hard N. C. Tar Heel basketball fan and
watched every game (she knew all the players by name), she could do a
Wordfind puzzle faster than folks younger than her.  Her favorite time was
sitting under the carport and watching all of her God’s creation.
Surviving is one daughter; Elna Owens (Ted) of Columbus, NC and three sons;
Grant Lynch (Dawn) and Kelly Lynch (Terry) of Mill Spring, NC and Kenny
Lynch (Jackie) of Rutherfordton, NC;  six grandchildren; Beth Ledford, Bruce
Owens (Martha), Jonathan Owens, Tony Lynch (Sonya), Terri Parton (Patrick)
