My thoughts and prayers are with the family. May God wrap his arms around each of you and give you peace, comfort and support in your time of need. I loved and will miss Linda.

Linda was a sweet friend of many. She fought a good fight and has received her reward in the presence of Jesus.
I had the privilege of working with Linda in the ETSU Admissions Office for more than 30 years. She was quite brilliant in her work as transcript analyst and was probably the most knowledgeable person in the state in this regard. I have many fond memories of the time spent with Linda, including the delicious peanut butter cookies she made for me each Christmas! I
will miss her, and offer my condolences to Andy and other family members,
John & Barbara Stevens
May God be with each member and friend of the family during this time. You are in our prayers.
I am saddened to learn of Linda's passing. May God give the family peace in this difficult time. We were school mates in the class of 1964.
