Mrs. Lingle’s Biography
I was born in a small farming community in Iowa where I joined an older brother and sister. Our family attended the local Reformed Presbyterian Church where I learned to love and trust the Lord as my Savior. After my early schooling, I attended Sterling College in Sterling, Kansas, receiving a BA in education with a minor in music.
My husband, Russ and I were married following graduation, and while Russ continued his pursuit of a master’s degree in psychology, I taught school. It was the time of the Viet Nam war and when Russ was drafted, many moves ensued. I received a master’s degree in music, piano emphasis and we finally settled in Maryland where we lived for thirty-five years, raising our family of two boys, Scott, a pastor, who is married with a family of boys himself, and Brian an employee of first Franklin, married with two girls and a boy. Russ became a Christian counselor, and I worked as a teacher as well as the music director at the PCA church we attended. Russ had a severe stroke when he was in his fifties, leaving him paralyzed on one side, with difficulties speaking and walking. However, with God’s help and his own determination, he was able to overcome his health problems to continue his work as a counselor.
Twelve years ago, we moved to South Carolina and made Anderson our home. Russ is now living at Richard Campbell, his body and mind weakening as age takes its toll. God has been our Refuge throughout and we rely on Him for each day’s challenges.
I am delighted to be among the people of Young Memorial and am enjoying working and making music with your in the worship of God. Praise be to Him!
