Linda was born August 4, 1962 in Harvey Illinois. She was the daughter of the late Earl Wayne & Virginia Carolyn "Jenny" Andrews McKenzie. She moved at an early age to the Bethlehem Community of Stanton Tennessee and was a 1980 graduate of Fayette-Ware High School. She was a hair stylist and nail tech at Sally's Beauty Salon in Somerville, Tennessee and at Jamaica Me Tan & Beautiful in Jackson, Tennessee. She was also a server for many years at the Somerville Country Club and for the past 15+ years, had dedicated her Wednesday nights feeding "Her Boys" at their weekly card game.
She was affectionately known to her family as Hinney. She enjoyed people and loved caring for them. She was an avid cook & was always cooking for others. Her greatest hobby was shopping. Oh, how she loved to shop! She enjoyed traveling, especially to the beach... but her favorite pastime was spending time with & enjoying her large family & many friends (whom she also considered family). Linda will be greatly missed by that family and by the shear multitudes of wonderful longtime friends that loved and adored her and the giant, infectious smile she always had on her face.
Linda was a Christian and was a member of Liberty Grove Baptist Church in Jackson, Tennessee.
