Lynda Soo

2b0cf3c2 4ae4 4fbb 9571 06d841f85fc3

Lynda Deneice Downing Soo, 60, of Arlington, Virginia, passed away peacefully on October 13, 2012 at Virginia Hospital Center after a four year fight with cancer. Lynda was born on February 29, 1952 to the late Mary and William Downing. She was married to her husband and companion, Robert Soo, for over 31 years and from this union they had one daughter, the late Erin Soo. Lynda was a long-time resident of “”S”” Street, N.W., Washington, D.C. and received her education in the D. C. Public School System. While Erin was growing up, Lynda spent much of her time with her at the beach or at the pool. Lynda enjoyed traveling around in her RV, along with her husband, going to Southern Maryland. They would travel to St. Mary’s County where they would camp out or stayed in base housing. In addition to traveling around in her RV, Lynda loved cooking, shopping, fishing and crabbing and loved being around people. In the early 1990’s, Lynda and husband met Gorman and Ogden Thomas and later their large extended family (Thomas and Chase). Lynda was referred to as Gorman’s “”adopted”” daughter. For years, before her health failed, Lynda would travel to St. Mary’s just to bring a meal to Gorman and sit with him and enjoy his company. The Thomas and Chase families made Lynda and her husband feel like they were a part of their family. Lynda loved these families and was always so grateful to them for opening up their hearts and homes to her. Lynda was preceded in death by her parents, Mary and William Downing, her daughter, Erin Soo and one sister and two brothers. Service will be held on Friday, October 19, 2012 at 11 am at Immaculate Heart of Mary Church, 22375 Three Notch Road, Lexington Park, MD. Interment will follow in the church cemetery. Arrangements by Briscoe-Tonic Funeral Home, Mechanicsville, MD.
