She was preceded in death by her husband William; parents Robert and Lillian; sister Connie (Cliff) Smith; and brother Robert (Jane) Moudy.

Linda was a part of the Covington High School graduating class of 1958, as well as attended Perrysville Schools for 10 years. She retired from the United State Postal Service after a 22-year career as a service carrier after working at branches in Covington, Indiana, Greensville, South Carolina and Catlin, Illinois. She also worked at General Electric in Danville, Illinois, for a number of years. She was a devoted member of First Baptist Church in Danville. She enjoyed her life as a devoted and loving wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. Many enjoyable years of her life were spent in Christian service in many churches across the country alongside her husband. She was a proud field representative for the Lighthouse Children’s Home in Kosciusko, Mississippi and Costa Rica.

She had a vast joy for life and enjoyed spending her time with friends, reading, planting flowers, working in her garden, capturing life’s moments through pictures, traveling and vacationing with her family, attending church and giving back to others.

A celebration of Linda’s life will be held at 2 p.m. (EST), Monday, Oct. 11 at Sunset Funeral Home and Cremation Center, 420 Third St., Covington. Visitation will be from noon to 2 p.m. Monday prior to her service at the funeral home. Final resting place will be at Lower Mound Cemetery in Warren County.
