Linda was born in Houston, Texas on October 28, 1945 to Arnold and Mary Pickett. She graduated Memorial High School, Houston, Texas in 1963. Linda was a Navy wife from 1967-1980. She was employed for many years as an administrative assistant with Mohawk Marketing, Minolta Corporation, and Emory University Goizueta School of Business. Linda loved to sew, craft, garden, and most of all cook. Her friends and family will remember her most for her famous banana pudding and fried chicken.
Linda was an active member at Restoration Church in Bethlehem, Georgia until 2014, when she and John moved to Las Vegas after her final treatment for breast cancer. For many years, Linda fought a brave and hard battle against several illnesses, including kidney disease, breast cancer, heart disease, and several lung disorders. She thought she was finally through it all when she became sick again, just as she was moving back to Loganville. Linda met her final illness with courage, grace, strength, and anticipation to meet the Lord.
A Celebration of Life Service will held at Restoration Church in Bethlehem, Georgia on July 9th at 2:00pm. The family requests that the dress attire be dress casual with no black. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in her honor to the American Kidney Fund or American Cancer Society.
