So sorry to hear. Linda was an amazing person, co-worker and leader at Community South. I only had a short time to work with her but there was never a dull moment and we could always count on a day of laughter that made work not seem like work. She will be missed. Prayers to her family and her extended work family.

Among the women that have been important in my life are: my mother; my wife; my grandmother (Grandma Lou); and my Aunt Linda. Aunt Linda, you were a wonderful aunt and you will be greatly missed. The obituary aptly says you had a “fiery spirit” and that you “always drew a laugh.” We will all miss that infectious laugh.

Sissy I am going to miss you so much, my life has changed forever without you. You are my hero, you fought so hard. At least I know now you are not in any pain and you’re happy. Like I told you when I was laying next to you that this is not goodbye, I will see you again in heaven. God got a beautiful angel on July 21, I’m so glad that I got to be with you on your birthday before you left to go to heaven to finish your birthday. I love you Sissy and you’ll be in my heart and I will think of you every day. I love you, Sharon

Linda could make everyone laugh. As young mothers we worked together at Market Square Area and we were on the verge of always being late to work. Once Linda came to pick me up for work and her car caught on fire. Our boss was not sure about our story - mainly because Linda’s sense of humor added less credibility to our story. God Bless Linda. I’m sure she’s with Jason and having fun.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

I was so sorry to hear of Linda’s passing! I knew Linda for many years. Although I had not seen her often in recent years. She was always a kind and caring person. She had a great personality. My heart goes out to her family who loved her very much! RIP beautiful lady!
