Marinello was a passenger in Frank Davey’s plane when it crashed into Lake Chickamauga.

Marinello was well known in the community.

She used to teach at Notre Dame High school, and at Hamilton Heights Christian Academy.

Lynda’s daughter, Alaina Marinello, says there’s a reason so many people remember her Mother.

“She was the type of person that would accept anybody as they were, no matter who they were, and I think that’s why she touched so many people’s lives. She loved the wrestlers, she loved the theater kids, she anybody, it didn’t matter what you were doing or what you were involved in, if you loved learning and loved her, she loved you too.”

Frank Davey’s funeral service will take place at Hixson Presbyterian Church next Wednesday at noon.

The visitation for Davey will start at 11 a.m. at the church.
