Tyler G. Pankey

COURTLAND—Lindsay Schafer Pankey, 26, and infant daughter, Tyler Grace Pankey, died June 1, 2008, in Cocoa, Fla.

Mrs. Pankey, who was born in Suffolk,

was a 2000 graduate of Southampton Academy, a 2004 graduate of Radford University, and earned her master’s degree in speech pathology and communications disorders from Old Dominion University.

She was a member of Grace Memorial United Methodist Church.

Survivors include her husband, Jonathan Bartlett Pankey; her parents, Chris and Rita Winstead Schafer of Courtland; her sisters, Katie Schafer of Blacksburg and Anna Schafer of Harrisonburg; father and mother-in-law, Walt and Gail Pankey of Bedford; and two sisters-in-law, Angela Davis and husband Bev, and Melissa Campbell and husband Kevin; and her beloved nieces and nephews, Avery and B Davis, and Kennedy, Spencer, and Pierce Campbell.

Cherished not only by her friends and family, she was devoted to her career as a speech therapist and loved by her patients.

Always an outspoken member of the family, she could light up a room by simply walking in the door.

Treasured by the youngest children and revered by the most senior, she had no strangers

in her life and enriched all whom she touched.

A funeral service will be conducted Friday at 11 a.m. at Grace Memorial United Methodist Church, Sedley, with the Revs. Mary Marshall and Elizabeth von Trapp Walker officiating.

Interment will follow in Rosemont Cemetery.

The family will receive friends from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Thursday at Wright Funeral Home, Franklin, and suggests memorials be made to the American Juvenile Arthritis Organization, 1330 West Peachtree Street, Suite 100, Atlanta, Ga. 30309, or Operation Smile, 6435 Tidewater Drive, Norfolk, VA 23509.
