Here is Llwendolyn Racheal Twyman’s online obituary. Please accept Everhere’s sincere condolences.
Llwendolyn Racheal Twyman, 47, of 542 Virginia Street, Keyser, WV, went to be with her Lord on Sunday, April 3, 2011 at the Western Maryland Regional Medical Center, Cumberland, MD. Born April 23, 1963 at Keyser, WV, she was a daughter of Wanda Lee Virginia (Redman) Twyman of Keyser and the late Ronald Isaac Twyman.
She also was preceded in death by an infant brother, Ronald A. Twyman, a cousin, Cheri A. Redman, her beloved dog, "Pepper", her grandparents, Douglas I. Twyman, Sarah J. Twyman, Richard A. Beckwith, and Cora L. Redman, and a host of aunts, uncles.
Llwen was a 1981 graduate of Keyser High School and also attended the Mineral County Vocational Technical Center's administrative clerical classes. Immediately after graduating, Llwen was diagnosed with kidney failure where her 30 year battle with kidney disease began. Time and time again, she was undefeated, beating seemingly impossible odds.
She enjoyed watching game shows, soap operas, "Monk," "Dancing with the Stars" and her favorite, "American Idol." She was consistent in playing the Daily Lottery and enjoyed the thrill of playing scratch-offs.
She was a member of the First Church of God in Christ in Piedmont, WV. Llwen loved the Lord and thanked Him everyday for always standing by her through it all. She now has the pleasure of retiring from her 30 year fight to everlasting love in life with the Lord.
