Linda was a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother, who loved her family with all her heart.  Some of Linda's favorite pastimes included doing crosswords, enjoying the beauty of flowers, and relaxing at Lake Tillery and the beach.  She was an animal lover who could spend all day petting her cats and was an avid bird watcher who could identify a multitude of different kinds of birds based on their appearance and the sounds of their voices. Linda had the most uplifting and room-brightening smile.  With a twinkle in her eye along with her beautiful smile, she has been a blessing to everyone and everything that she has touched.

The family wishes to express their gratitude to hospice staff, Lisa, Sara Beth, and Brittany.

Memorials may be made to Hospice of Stanly & the Uwharrie, 960 North First Street, Albemarle, NC 28001.
