She also headed a prayer service she started in 1986 to the time Prayerforce was started. She was a member of the Princeton Church of God Sanctuary choir. She was a devoted wife, mother, sister, aunt and friend. She had a beautiful voice and ministered in singing for many years with Rev. David and Georgia Barnette on their radio broadcast each Saturday morning. Linda also ministered in song at various churches, down through the years. She was an anointed servant of God since a young teenager, and a beloved prayer warrior. She was a dear friend to many, and will be greatly missed. Everyone who knew Linda knew her love for the Lord, and how she had a heart for prayer.
The family will hold visitation on Saturday, January 27th, 5 to 8 pm at Princeton Church of God, Princeton, WV. The family wishes to thank Deliverance Temple Church and Princeton Church of God and the people who prayed many prayers and did good deeds for Linda and her family in her 6 year journey with cancer.
