Let your light shine before men, that. they may see your good works, and. glorify your Father which is in heaven. Matthew 5:16
Missionary Lynette Rena Golden was born on December 18, 1956, in Denver, Colorado to her parents, Arvy Martin Golden, Sr. and Lillian Edwards Golden. She was the fourth child born in the family. She was raised surrounded by her brothers, Richard, Steven, Arvy, Jr. and her sisters, Debra, Gail, Martha, and Lori. As a child, she enjoyed the time spent with her siblings. She received her early education in Denver and graduated from Manuel High School. While in school, she was a member of the Fencing team where she earned a trophy.
Missionary Golden was the proud mother of a son, she named Mosi Golden. She was a loving and devoted mother, who took great pride in the care and nurture of her son. They loved going to the movies, and spending quality time together. The love shared between the two was unconditional and never ending. She was later blessed with three grandchildren, Tyler, Mosi, Jr., Sakari; and two great grandchildren, Mosi, III, and Kaden, who all were an additional source of joy and pride in her life. They lovingly called her “grandmama” and fondly remember her cooking and she taking them to church.
Missionary Golden was employed as a Cook at Daviss Nursing Home and at Fitzsimmons Army Medical Center. She was hard-working, dedicated, and performed her duties with a spirit of excellence. Her most fulfilling job was that of a Homemaker who loved taking care of her family.
A woman of faith and belief in the Lord, Mother Golden was saved, sanctified and Holy Ghost filled at the Light of Life Miracle Deliverance Church in the Summer 1990. Immediately after she received Christ in her life, she joined the nursing unit and Choir. She was one of the faithful prayer warriors in the church and prayed for many over the telephone and wherever the need presented itself. She was truly a witness for her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, both in word and deed.
Mother Golden and her sister, Deaconess Missionary Debra Walker loved laboring in the Nursing home. After the passing of the Nursing Home President, Pastor appointed them as Co-presidents in 2005 over that ministry. Neither one of them drove, but through their dedication and love for the people, they were there every third Saturday of the month. The staff and the tenants loved them and looked forward to seeing them.
Mother Golden was a walking miracle. She was on Dialysis for twenty-four (24) years and a Kidney transplant for over thirteen (13) years. Our dear sister suffered with much pain for many years but that never stopped her from being a faithful servant unto the Lord.
She loved her Pastor & Wife and church family dearly and prayed for them untiringly. God’s faithful servant is now resting in peace, her testimony was “I DON’T KNOW WHAT YOU COME TO DO, BUT I COME TO PRAISE THE LORD.” “HE’S WORTHY TO BE PRAISED”.
Missionary Golden loved spending precious moments with her close friends and her pet dogs. Some of friends include Dora, Olivia, Debra Randon, Cynthia Reeves, Sharon Walker (her play daughter) and her prayer partner, Maryann Minor, will miss her loving and caring spirit and the fact that she was a true and trusted friend. She will be missed by all who were fortunate enough to have known this kind and wonderful woman of God who was a strong Prayer Warrior. To know Missionary Golden was to love her.
She is preceded in death by her parents, and a sister, Lori Golden. Mother Lynette R. Golden departed this life to the embrace of the Lord on December 16, 2021, in Denver, Colorado. Those left to cherish her memory and mourn her loss include her son, Mosi M.N. Golden, Sr; 3 brothers, Richard Walker, Steven Walker, Arvy Golden, Jr.; 3 sisters. Debra Walker all of Denver, Colorado, and Gail Golden and Marta Golden both of Pueblo, Colorado; 3 grandchildren, Tyler Anderson, Mosi (Jasmine) Golden, Jr., and Sakari A.R., Golden; 2 great grandchildren, Mosi Golden, III, and Kaden Anderson, all of Denver, Colorado; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives and many friends.
