Brice Herndon Funeral Chapels & Crematory
Miss Cassidy Louise Lyons, 21, of Cypress Pond Road, Walterboro, entered into her state of eternal rest Saturday morning, September 12, 2020.
Cassidy was born October 8, 1998, in Charleston, and was a daughter of The Reverend Rodney Lee Lyons, Sr. and Samantha Beach Lyons. She was a graduate with honors from Colleton County High School – Class of 2017. While at Colleton County High School she for some time participated in the school accredited Certified Nursing Assistant program. She then began at The University of South Carolina, where currently she was a third-year nursing student. She had received a double Associates Degree, an Associates in Science and an Associates in Arts from The University of South Carolina, Salkehatchie Campus in December of 2019. She was a member of Edgewood Baptist Church where she had been active serving with the church’s youth program and was a dedicated volunteer with the church’s Food Pantry Ministry. She was also dearly devoted to helping with Vacation Bible School. As a pastor’s daughter she knew what it was to show up and help with whatever was needed, which was her natural inclination, to help in anyone in anyway and with anything that she could. She was a country gal at heart. She loved being on four wheelers and hunting. Cassidy was larger than life. Her smile was infectious, and her heart was even greater. This world is a better place today having known Cassidy Louise Lyons.
