Linda Kay Scott was born on December 14, 1941 in Finger, TN in the Sweetlips Community the daughter of the late Lyman Lee and Edna Omega Keen McCormick. She departed this life on January 27, 2024 in Adamsville, TN in the comfort of her home at the age of 82 years, 1 Month, and 13 Days.

Linda graduated from the Adamsville High School, class of 1959. She played basketball, and was a member of the Pep Club, Glee Club, FHA, and the Library Club.


On January 16, 1960, she was united in marriage to William Jerry Scott who survives the love of his life. 

Linda started working in 1959 at Garan Manufacturing in Adamsville, TN and remained there for approximately 10 years.

She also worked at The Little Diner, Captains, Piggly Wiggly, and Briggs Tobacco in Savannah. She was a member of Adamsville Freewill Baptist church.

Linda was a devoted wife, loving mother and grandmother and a wonderful friend to many. She loved her family dearly and supported them in every endeavor. Her greatest joy in life was taking care of her two grandsons - they were her pride and joy. 

She continued to commit her life to her family with an unconditional love and compassion that never waivered. She also enjoyed planting flowers, cross stitching, sewing, and especially loved family vacations to the beach.
