Linda Jean Jones Huff was welcomed by the angels into her Heavenly Home on Monday, June 7, 2021. She was born on December 31, 1967 to Leonard J. Jones and Annie Boothe Jones.

She graduated from Floyd County High School in 1986. Her last employment was Wal-Mart in Rocky Mount where she was a Customer Service Manager. Linda fought a courageous battle with Type 1 Diabetes since her teenage years. Her faith in God, strength, courage, and determination was an inspiration to everyone she came in contact with. She made a point of reading her Bible daily. While in a nursing home for many years, she inspired her family and others through paint by number picture apps that she would post on social media. She also posted daily scriptures that always uplifted us.

Her greatest achievement was her daughter, Angela, who she called her “mini me”. Speaking of Linda’s determination, she said she wanted to live to see Angela graduate from high school. She wasn’t able to attend, but was able to have a graduation party at the nursing home and watch the ceremony on TV.

Linda is preceded in death by her father, Leonard J. Jones; father-in-law & mother-in-law, Ocie & Doc Huff; brother-in-law, Paul Carroll; and sister-in-law, Melinda Huff.

Those left to cherish her memory and be forever thankful for her impact on our lives are her daughter, Angela Gail Huff; spouse, James Huff; mother, Annie B. Jones; sisters & brothers-in-law, Frances Carroll, Betty & Fred Bowyer, Shirley & David Yeatts, Ella Jane Jones, Brenda & John Conroy, Jr., and Laurie & Roger Hurt; and in-laws, Doc Huff, Jr., Howard Eugene Huff, Kenneth & Janice Huff, and Wanda & William Peters.

Our hearts are broken. Your passing has left a tremendous void in our lives. We find comfort knowing you are truly healed and that we will all be reunited in our Heavenly Father’s Mansion.
