Lyn Lee Fuller Luster
1947 - 2022

Lyn Lee Fuller Luster, of White Deer, went to her final rest on Wednesday, Oct. 12, 2022, in Amarillo at the age of 74 years old, 11 months and 27 days.

Services were held on Monday, Oct.17, 2022, at Community Crossroads Church in White Deer with Rev. Dr. Jerry Lane, pastor, officiating. Cremation will follow the service under the direction of Carmichael-Whatley Funeral Directors and Crematory.

Lyn was born Oct. 15, 1947, in Harper County, Okla. to Bonnie Christine Rush and Louis T. Fuller. Lyn’s father, Louis, followed the oil patch, so she got to experience life in various locations. She graduated from High school in Ardmore, Okla. in 1965 and met the love of her life, Darell, in 1966. They married on Oct. 1, 1966, in Pampa, and had just celebrated 56 years of being married. Lyn followed Darell to Fort Bragg, N.C., where they lived during Darell’s service in the U.S. Army. Upon returning to Pampa, Lyn started her career with the Kelly Laycock clinic in Pampa, working there for several years.

Lyn went to work for Cabot Corporation Pampa plant, starting off in the office as a traffic dispatcher and transferring to the plant in the carbon black shipping. She retired after 30 years’ service. Lyn couldn’t stand the thought of relaxing, so she began her volunteer service with the White Deer EMS in the early 2000’s as an EMT. When the service needed a director, Mayor Kent Kelp asked her to be the EMS director until they could find someone permanent. Lyn held that position for five years and was the director at her death. She continued to work even through her breast cancer diagnosis and treatments. Even during her chemotherapy treatments, Lyn continued to perform as an EMT, providing emergency care to others. Lyn loved the White Deer community and was well known for taking those who had no transportation to their doctor appointments, and for providing meals for those in need. Lyn was also a 20-year member of the White Deer Lions Club, where she was a faithful member during the White Deer Rodeo, serving up burritos for high school scholarships. She loved attending church and was a member of the Community Crossroads Church in White Deer. Lyn had a great love for animals of all kinds and adopted many in need of a home and spoiled them greatly.

Lyn and Darell welcomed their only son, Christopher Michael, on June 26, 1972.

Lyn was a cub scout leader to Chris and many of the other boys. She was an avid supporter of White Deer High School sports, cheering for the Bucks during Chris’ high school years. Lyn became a mother to Christyn and raised her as the daughter she always wanted. She supported her FFA and sports endeavors, often referring to her as ‘Queenie.’ Then Christyn gave her the greatest gift, a great-grandson, Emmett.

She is preceded in death by her parents.

Lyn is survived by her husband, Darell Luster; son, Christopher Luster and wife Ida “Rainey”; daughter, Christyn; granddaughter, Brooke Luster; step-granddaughter, Syndelyn Langston; and great-grandchildren, Emmett Miranda, Ayers Langston, Kyler Langston and Ryan Langston.

Also, surviving her is her twin sister, Ann and husband, Dutch Langston, and younger sister, Christina and husband, Roger Barbour; brother-in-law, David Luster; and numerous nieces and nephews.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations are made to PAWS animal rescue in Pampa or to the White Deer Volunteer EMS.
