Lyndsey Unique Dawkins Blow (Lynx), age 32, passed away on December 7, 2020 at the Sentara Careplex in Hampton, Virginia after a long and courageous battle with cancer. Lyndsey was born October 28, 1988 to Sherman and Gail Blow. In 2006, she graduated from Denbigh High School in Newport News. She completed her Bachelor’s of Science Degree in Mass Communications at the Virginia Commonwealth University in 2009. After graduation she worked various jobs until she was hired by Christopher Newport University as the Executive Assistant to the Dean of Natural and Behavioral Sciences.
Lyndsey loved life to the fullest and believed idle time was wasted time. She loved to learn and had many interests including learning languages, reading classical novels, researching and writing fiction, line dancing, knitting, crocheting, entrepreneurship, and traveling (to name a few). Her greatest attribute was her acceptance of people from all walks of life without condemnation. She was a strong civil rights advocate who tried to treat people the way she wanted to be treated.
Lyndsey was very loving and loyal to her family and friends. She absolutely loved her “old people” posses which consisted of her parents and eleven aunts and uncles. She also loved and strongly supported her best friend and baby sister, Bianca. At the age of 8, her love of Jesus Christ inspired her to be baptized and become a Christian. Her faith sustained her through her final days and her “old people” never left her side.
Lyndsey is preceded in death by her maternal and paternal grandparents. She is survived by her parents, Gail and Sherman Blow; her brother Sherman Blow, Jr.; sister Bianca Blow; aunts Linda Dawkins, Trumiller Blow, Delores Lucas, Karen Dawkins, Diane Dawkins and Louvenia Blow; uncles John Dawkins Jr, Raiford Blow, Dennis Dawkins, Eddie Blow, Todd Dawkins; and a host of cousins.
The family is deeply grateful to the World Outreach Worship Center and the “WOWC guys,” in Newport News for always bringing joy and hope when it was so desperately needed
Due to the elevated COVID 19 risks, the family will have a private celebration of life event at a later date.
