Together they served 22 years before his retirement in 1979 and returned to Rich Hill. They relocated to Chapin, SC in 2019 to be closer to their children. Lynda was an accomplished seamstress, making beautiful clothes for her family and even custom bridal gowns for her daughters. In more recent years, she enjoyed quilting.

Criminger, Sr. and Pauline Bailey Criminger. She is survived by her husband, Mitchell, her daughters Michelle Faulkenberry Page (Carey) and Melinda Faulkenberry Pedroni (Shaun.)
