Loved ones say goodbye to Page Blvd. victim, America Lyden, at funeral

Hampden County

Memorial services were held Wednesday night for one of the three victims whose remains were found at a home on Page Boulevard in Springfield May.

Family and friends gathered at Hafey Funeral Home in Springfield to remember America Lyden. 

Her body was found at the Page Boulevard home of Stewart Weldon on May 30.

Lyden’s sister, Jennifer Gibson, told 22News she wants America to be remembered as a loving mother and sister.

“She was so beloved in this city, she had a heart of gold,” Gibson told 22News. “She always wore her heart on her sleeve and gave everyone everything and here we are as a family giving our last respects to our sister.”

Weldon is currently being held on two million dollar bails on unrelated kidnapping charges.

No one has been charged in connection with the three bodies found at 1333 Page Boulevard.
