Obituary for Linda Wiggins Smith

Linda W. Smith
December 22, 1944 - November 1, 2019

La Grange-Linda Wiggins Smith, 74, was released from this earth to her eternal home in Heaven with our Lord on Friday, November 1, 2019. Linda was born December 22, 1944 in Lenoir County to the late Walker Vinson Wiggins and Gay Marie Moye Wiggins.

Linda worked as a beautician for 50 years. She took great pride in her work and always gave her best effort. Linda retired earlier than she wanted because of a stroke she suffered in 2012.

Linda was a “jack of many trades.” She kept a neat and exceptionally clean house. Everything had to be in its proper place. Her green thumb was evident all around her house and yard. She was an excellent cook and loved having family gathered around her table. Her touch on the meal made everything that much better.

Her grandchildren and family loved gathering together for her famous Sunday dinner. Her fried chicken, mashed potatoes, fresh string beans, homemade biscuits and sweet tea were always a big hit.

Fiercely independent, feisty and peculiar doesn’t even begin to describe Linda. She liked being in control and wanted things exactly her way. A good Misty cigarette made everything better for Linda.

Linda believed the sun rose and set in her two grandchildren, Raye Lynn Hart and Macon Shane Hart. She was quick to let anyone know that they were her life. She will truly be remembered and greatly missed.

A graveside service to celebrate Linda’s life will be held Sunday, November 3, 2019 at 3 p.m. at Fairview Cemetery. A time of fellowship will follow the graveside service.

Linda is survived by her grandchildren, Macon Shane Hart, Raye Lynn Hart and Lola Hart; sister, Judy Wiggins Anderson and husband, Aubrey; special family friends, Kenny Thomas, Mary Hudson Oliver, Ola Lee Sugg, Lillian Paderick and Linda Jones; her beloved grand dog, Aussie; and many beloved nieces and nephews.

In addition to her parents, Linda was preceded in death by a son, Shane Jones; and siblings, Doris Wiggins Skinner, Mary Rose Wiggins Hart, Kathy Wiggins Hill, Ken Wiggins, Jim Farley Wiggins Sr., Gene Wiggins and Charles Walker Wiggins.

Online condolences may be expressed at Arrangements are entrusted to Rouse Funeral Home, La Grange.
