Obituary for Avalyn Kaye Lacy

Avalyn Kaye  Lacy
Avalyn Kaye Lacy, 57 of Sparta Tennessee, passed away on Thursday, March 15, 2018. She was proceeded in death by her beloved Grandfather Elmore Carter (Dado), and her Uncle Elmore Carter, Jr. She is survived by her parents, Alvin Lacy and Barbara Carter Lacy of Sparta, her brother Jeff Lacy and Karen of Cookeville, and niece Megan Lacy of Richmond, VA. She also had a wide network of aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews including Grandmother Rowena Carter Hayes, Uncle Ronnie Carter and Aunt Angie, Aunt Lois Carter, Uncle James Lacy and Aunt Claudine, and Aunt Rowena Lacy.

Avalyn loved her family deeply and widely, she was close with both immediate and extended family, and cared for them with unconditional love. She was a woman of abiding faith and her trust in God’s provision, even in the face of adversary, was an inspiration to all. She was a founding member of the Lighthouse Church family where she served as treasurer. Avalyn worked at Ben Lomand Connect in Sparta for 32 years. She loved her coworkers who she called “her girls” and she always brought patience and positivity to the office. Avalyn loved to read, listen to classical music, and make greeting cards; she also had a lifelong romance with the Three Tenors.

Avalyn Lacy had a heart as big as gold, a sweet loving spirit, and a beautiful contagious smile. She spread joy and faith wherever she went. Avalyn will be missed by those who loved her, and by those who had the privilege of being loved by her. She was God’s unique gift to us during her time on earth, and her spirit of love lives on in our lives, even in her death.

A memorial service will be held at 6pm on Tuesday, March 20, 2018 at The Lighthouse Church on Old Kentucky Road in Sparta with Brother Thomas McCulley and Sister Judy Smith officiating. Visitation will be from 4pm until 6pm at the church.
