Linda loved the Lord. She made it her purpose in life to make sure she shared the love of Jesus to everyone around her. She, often, said that one of her greatest accomplishments in life was her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. She loved them unconditionally and dedicated her life to teaching them to love Jesus and live like He did. Linda worked as a registered nurse for the Wilson County Home Health and Hospice agency for many years. She used her love and compassion for people and took great pride in caring for them daily. She touched many lives through her work as a nurse. Her nursing legacy will live on through her daughter and granddaughter who continue to serve in the nursing profession.
Flowers are welcome and may be delivered to Stoneybrook Christian Church. Donations may be made in her memory to Samaritan's Purse or The International Fellowship of Christians and Jews.
