Linda was married to her teenage sweetheart for 49 years. They have two children and seven grandchildren with a great grandchild on the way. Linda was someone who would always put others before herself. It didn't matter how bad she felt everyone came first in her life. She was not someone who loved material things. She was always content with what she had and she never once complained. Linda was never one who held a grudge toward anyone. She always seen the good in people and welcomed everyone in her home. She was someone with a good heart who cared for everyone and most of all she loved her family dearly.

Linda was the one who always held the family together. She wanted to make everything better. My mom is my strength, my hero, and I hope that I can be half the mom that she is. We love you mom, you go rest high on that mountain and dance with grandma and momma. You save us a spot because we will soon be there to dance with you.

The family would also like to thank the staff (family) at West Bladen Assisted Living for taking such good care of her. Also, Liberty Hospice, we cannot say thank you enough for helping us through this time. You are an amazing group of people.

A graveside service will be held on Wednesday, March 27, 2019 at 11:00 am at Hickory Grove Cemetery in Bladenboro. The family will receive friends following the service at the cemetery.
