The family would like to thank the staff of Amedisys Hospice for their care and support, especially Blanche and Debbie.
Linda’s daughter Michelle wrote a poem dedicated to her mother:
“It is 2 am and I’m staring at my Momma’s beautiful face. She looks 30 years younger than her 70th birthday today. That beautiful face…. always filled with so much love. That beautiful face with the enormous smile that made you confident that everything was going to be okay. That beautiful face looked so lovingly into the eyes of her 3 children David, Matthew, and Michelle on the day they were born. That beautiful face….faced so many heartaches and tragedies but it always remained a beautiful face filled with love. That beautiful face comforted every skinned knee, every surgery, every bad day, every broken torn up heart. That beautiful face cried tears of joy at all of our triumphs and cried tears of sorrow at our losses. That beautiful face always kissed away our tears…. That beautiful face loved to read her hundreds of books…. but no greater book that beautiful face loved more than the Bible. That beautiful face loved to teach her children all the stories and the words of God. That beautiful face loved to sing hymns to her Lord and bow when she talked to Him in prayer. That beautiful face beamed so brightly the days her grandchildren Jacob and Michael were born. That beautiful face loved to hold and watch those two boys as her own. That beautiful face endured physical and mental pains but that beautiful face endured it with a quiet passion and grace that God had bestowed her. That beautiful face…. the one we are so grateful for…. the one who made life better…. the one who showed us the way…. that beautiful face we owe so much to and love beyond measure….”
At Linda’s request services will be private and held at the convenience of the family.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made to the West Virginia School of Preaching, 1 Willard Ave., Moundsville, W.Va. 26041 or through
