Lydia Bynum
On Saturday, October 8, 2016 Lydia “Lit” Bynum was abruptly taken from us to be with the Lord.
Lydia “Lit” Bynum was born in Bogalusa, Louisiana on August 14, 1960 to her parents Brenda Wilson and Joseph Johnson. She was the first child born to that union.
Lit was a God fearing woman, and accepted Jesus Christ into her life, and was baptized at an early age in New Orleans, Louisiana by her longtime friend and Pastor, Pastor Brown. Lit was a true evangelist and always helped others in need. Her main purpose in life was to bring her family, friends, and anyone she knew, closer to Christ. She was strong, she was resilient, she was focused on a higher purpose in life. Lit was a loving mother. She devoted her life to her three daughters, and raised them to love the Lord. Lit was a grandmother, who devoted her life to ensuring her grandchild knew the Lord. Lit believed that life was not promised, so we must seek the Kingdom of God and be ready when we leave this earth and stand before the Lord. Lit had a love that was unconditional, she loved us all the same no matter what. Today we honor her. We honor her for being who she is, who she was, and for the Legacy she left behind.
She leaves behind to cherish her memories, her husband James Bynum, her three daughters, Shantel Bynum, Alexis Bynum, and Angel Goree. Her mother and father, Brenda Wilson and Joseph Johnson. Her sister, Rita Guy. Her two brothers, Morris and Willie Jeff. Her only granddaughter, Briana Bynum.  In addition to several aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends whom she will cherish.
Lit will be sadly missed by all whose life she touched during her short stay on this earth. But one gift she has left behind is her love Christ. As she rests on in Heaven, her wish would be that we all understand that there is everlasting life after we leave this earth, and to love one another, forgive one another, and seek salvation. Amen.
The family of Lydia “Lit” Bynum would like to express our sincere and heartfelt appreciation for the many condolences, visits, telephone calls, and other acts of kindness. A very special thanks to Pastor Lajon’ Hawthorne and officers and members of True Ministries Church of the Faithful God.
