Obituary

Lynwood Washington, affectionately known by his brothers as “Stump,” was born on August 20, 1935 in Modest Town, Virginia to the late Booker T. and Australia Milbourne Washington. This union was blessed with twelve children. Lynwood transitioned from his earthly home to his heavenly home quietly and peacefully, on Saturday May 16, 2020 at Riverside Shore Memorial Hospital in Onancock, Virginia.

Lynwood received his education from the Accomack County Public School System. He worked at Golden Pride for many years until they closed and then gained employment at Bloxom Auto Supply where he served for many years until his health began to fail.

In later years, he met and married his loving wife and soulmate of twenty-nine years, Deloris “Sis” White Washington until God called her home in September 2015. This union was blessed with a blended family of fifteen.

With the love for their grandchildren, “Pop” and “Ma Sis” took care of them as though they were their own Brian “Stick” White, Shawn, Jabrea, and Antwine, wh0 stayed in trouble but, was his pride and joy. Antwine would always get the worst end because, Pop would say “Boy shut your mouth, you just don’t know when to shut up Antwine.” He loved his entire family and would do anything for them.

Pop accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior at an early age and joined the First Baptist Church in Mappsville, Virginia. There he served faithfully in many capacities: among them, Chairman of the Deacon’s Ministry and President of the Male chorus, until his health began to fail. His favorite hymns were, “Do you know the man from Galilee?’ and “He brought me over the old rugged Hill.”

“Pop” loved to travel up and down the Shore, going to different churches, praying, and singing. He really loved it when the churches would get together for the yearly song fest, if his wife was unable to accompany him, he would be seen traveling alone. He also loved fishing and was able to relive that pastime during lake visits while residing at Heritage Hall in Nassawadox.

“Pop” and “Pop-Pop” as he was affectionately called by his children and grandchildren, had a smile that would light up the room. He could be found sitting in his favor chair watching TV or the TV watching him, eating ice cream, or parked at the Corner Mart in Nelsonia, doing his word puzzle books, watching traffic, and catching up on the news going on in town. He also loved to go to McDonald’s every day to get his cheeseburger and coffee. Whenever he traveled across the Chesapeake Bay, his favor spot to stop was Bojangles; he couldn’t come back across the bridge without getting his 2-piece chicken dinner and biscuit.

He was preceded in death by his parents and wife; brothers, William, Albert, Leroy, and Rudolph; sisters, Rebecca Bell, Carrie Goodman, and Joetta Fisher; sons, Ronnie Washington, Eugene White, and Danny White; granddaughter he raised as his own, Camellia Washington-Sheppard; three sisters-in-law; one brother-in-law; and one daughter-in-law.

Left to cherish his memory and carry on his legacy are: his children, Diane, Gregory (Karen), Pastor Calvin (Lisa), Tonie (Tassha), Devon (Stella), Rita (Relford), Steve (Darlene), Tyrone (Shirley), Charlie, Valestine, Yvonne, and Mary; daughter-in-law, Kate Washington; sisters, Novella Shrieves, Pansy Bloxom, and Sally Edwards; brothers, George “Jake’’ and Booker T. “Cookie” Washington; brother-in-law, Nelson White, forty grandchildren, twenty-eight great-grandchildren; five great, great-grandchildren; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives, and good friends.
