Lyndall Sue Brittain McCracken, 88, of West Lafayette, Indiana, passed away peacefully at her home on Tuesday, February 27, 2024.  Lyndall was born in Washington, Indiana on May 22, 1935 to the late Millard Eddison (Jake) Brittain and Velma Trayler Pride Brittain.

After Graduating from Washington High School in 1953, Lyndall went on to attend Vincennes University. She married George Edwin McCracken on March 18, 1956.  She worked in Accounting for Washington National Bank, Sears, and Crane Naval Weapons Center. After she and George divorced in 1984, Lyndall moved to Ft. Myers, FL where she worked as unit clerk/telemetry specialist for Southwest Florida Regional Medical Center.  After retiring, Lyndall moved back to Washington to care for her ailing mother.  After her mother passed, Lyndall moved to West Lafayette, IN to be closer to her children.

Lyndall was a member of Lafayette Christian Church and a former member of Christ United Methodist Church of Washington.
