Lynn C. Cashion, 63, bred and showed Persian cats

Although Lynn C. Cashion was disabled in 1988 due to a motor vehicle accident, she loved her life and didn’t let her wheelchair slow her down.

Ms. Cashion died unexpectedly Friday, Feb. 7, 2014, at the age of 63.

She was active for many years in the South Carolina Spinal Cord Injury Association and enjoyed the simple parts of life: weekly visits to Chick-fil-A, Friday visits at the mall with her “mall friends,” her scrapbooking business and a cattery business where she bred and showed Persian cats.

She was a member of the St. Peter’s Lutheran Church and loved her family and her boyfriend of 20 years, always thankful and excited for the smallest things in life.

Ms. Cashion was born Jan. 9, 1951, in Baltimore, Md. and was preceded in death by her parents, Conrad Lynn Cashion and Wanda Lee Bowman Cashion and two nephews.

She is survived by her boyfriend, Dean Owens, of Prosperity; daughter, Missy Riddle (Joe), of Chapin; son, Woody Cannon (Jessica), of Chapin; sisters, Jean Hooker, Nancy Cannon (James), of Chapin, Betty Bell (Frank), of Charleston and Barbara Bishop (Jason), of Newberry; brother, Luke Cashion, of Chapin; grandchildren, Tripp, Kaleb and Zachary Riddle and Emmett Cannon, of Chapin; honorary daughter, Shannon Dale; and numerous nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews.

Memorial services will be held at 4 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 9, 2014, at St. Peter’s Lutheran Church. The family will receive friends after the service in the sanctuary and other times at the home of Missy Riddle.

Memorials may be made to the Health Care Ministry at St. Peter’s Lutheran Church at 900 Dreher Island Road, Chapin, SC 29086. A special thanks goes the staff at Springfield Place in Newberry. She truly was very happy there and was cared for with much love.

Please leave online condolences for the family at Caughman-Harman Funeral Home.
