Llwendolyn Racheal Twyman Obituary

Here is Llwendolyn Racheal Twyman’s obituary. Please accept Everhere’s sincere condolences.

Llwendolyn "Llwen" Racheal Twyman, 47, of 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 on 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", and her paternal grandparents, Douglas and Sarah Twyman, and her maternal grandparents, Richard Beckwith and Cora Redman, a host of aunts and 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. Surviving, in addition to her loving mother, Wanda, are five sisters, Barbara D. "Missy" Smith and husband John, Gwendolyn A. "Sissy" Redman, Rhonda D. Twyman and Sheila A. "Ching" Twyman, all of Keyser; Tammy J. Twyman, of Hagerstown, MD., her close companion, Charleton "Beany" Horton of Keyser; five special nieces, LaToya, Shawna and Tameka Redman and Tyiesha Twyman, all of Keyser and Brea Washington and fiance, Saul McDonald of Alexandria, VA; two special nephews, Robert "Tony" Washington and wife LaTia of Keyser and Cory Washington and wife Olivia of Fayetteville, NC and 14 grandnieces and grandnephews, La'Ante, Marquise, Alexandria, Jason, Shawntrell, Cameron, Serenity, Donavan, Brielle, Chanelle, Danica, Isaac, Aniyah, and Tiavian, whom she loved dearly. Also surviving are her godmother, Sue Clay of Keyser; two special friends, Marlon Allen and Robin Harris of Keyser and a host of aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.

Friends were received at the Smith Funeral Home, Keyser Chapel, on Wednesday, April 6, 2011 from 2-4 & 7-9 p.m. Funeral services were conducted at the Smith Funeral Home, Keyser Chapel, on Thursday, April 7, 2011 at 2:00 p.m. with Bishop Henderson Wheeler, Rev. Darnell Allen and Rev. Chris Taylor officiating. Interment was in the Potomac Memorial Gardens, Keyser.
