Rev. Linda K. Kyzar, 65 of Beebe, Arkansas slipped from this world into the arms of Jesus, May 05, 2020.

She was born Sept. 14, 1954 to the late Joseph Ray & Verine Beard Kyzar of Jayess, Mississippi. She attended New Bethel Jesus Name Church and Christian School most of her school years and graduated from Topeka Tilton High School in Lawrence County, MS. After graduating, she began teaching in New Bethel Christian school for a limited time. Linda never married but after the passing of her mother, she became the guardian of her niece, Renzie Kyzar for approximately ten years.

Preceded in death by her parents, two sisters, Betty (Willie) Martin, of Summit, MS, and Louise Thames of Monticello, MS and one nephew, Trent Kyzar.

Survived by two sisters, Barbara Estave’ of Summit, and Julia (Mike) Frazier of Monticello; one brother, Raymond (Nelda) Kyzar of Jayess, and her nieces and nephews, who she loved dearly; Donna Lea, Tina Estave, Renzie Ballard, Joe Ben Thames,  (Pastor Jason) & Violet Scheel, Richard and Reginald Kyzar; great nephews and nieces: Brian Ginn, Christian & Bethany Boyd, Shaunacee & Makenzie Mealer, Amber, Jacob & Shawn Thames, Hannah, Jared, & Jordan Scheel, Hayden & Jacob Kyzar; her beloved Lighthouse Pentecostal Church family in Beebe AR;  her Ministering fellowship; and special friends from so many places across the nation. 

Linda felt the call to the ministry in her early twenties. She preached out of her home church in Pine, Louisiana, under Bro. Jerry Cox, where she lived for a few years before evangelizing full time.  Her ministry was throughout the United States and abroad, even to Korea.  She was ordained in the United Pentecostal Church International in July 1985, in Tioga, Louisiana by Rev. T.F. Tenny. In the mid-eighties, she moved to Beebe, Arkansas where she continued to evangelize under the pastorate of Dr. John Scheel, for the remainder of her ministry, even while pastoring churches in Vernon, IL and in Murfreesboro, TN.  She was the founder of the Women’s Ministerial Alliance that continues today across many of the Apostolic churches. After resigning from her pastoral ministry, she moved to Florence, MS and began evangelizing again until she and her traveling missionary friend, Sis. Bobbie Lively made several trips to Nunavut in the Artic, where she preached the Apostolic doctrine to the Inuit Eskimos, who were very eager to accept the Truth.

She was lovingly cared for by her adoring niece, Violet Scheel, for the past 7 years, as well as many friends and ladies of the Lighthouse Pentecostal Church and the faithful nurses, aides, and staff of the Beebe Retirement Center and Elite Hospice. 

A Homegoing service will be held at the Lighthouse Pentecostal Church in Beebe, AR on Thursday, May 7, at 7pm, with Dr. John Scheel and Pastor Jason Scheel officiating.  Interment will be near her beloved mother in Jayess, MS with a graveside service at Providence Cemetery, Friday, May 8 at 4pm.

Social distancing requirements will be expected.

Services are under the care and direction of Vilonia Funeral Home 1134 Main Street Vilonia, AR 72173.

My wife and I have not seen Sis. Kyzar in several years but remember vividly the revival that she held in Benton, IL and the United Pentecostal. Many souls came to Jesus during that revival. Surely there is a reward that has been received for the labor in the field of the master.

Sis. Kyzar holds a special place in my heart. She was such a unique person. She didn't have a false bone in her body and was single minded in her love for God. I can just hear her saying, "You just can't lose with the stuff we use!" Never forgotten.

God saw her getting tired and a cure was not to be
So he put his arms around her and whispered
“ Come to Me” with tearful eyes we watched her
Suffer, and saw her slowly fade-away. Although we
Loved her dearly , we could not make her stay.
A golden heart stopped beating hard working
Hands put to rest, God broke our hearts to

Linda I love you ,you will be greatly missed!
I’m very grateful to have got to be apart of
Lots of wonderful days together and loved
Caring for you ❤️❤️❤️ Letty
