Survivors include her husband, Jerry Williams of Honey Island; stepdaughters, Karla Caballero of San Antonio; Donna Stutts and her husband, David; and Kelly Williams, all of Kountze; sister, Peggy Gore “Buck” Brimer and her husband, James, of Huntington; nieces and nephews, Brandy Smith of Wells and Kristen Fletcher of Huntington; great-nieces and nephews, Kaylee Collins and Emma King, both of Huntington, and Kylan Redd “Boogie” of Wells; and fur-babies, Iszy, Bailey, and Maggie.

Linda is preceded in death by her parents; son, J.D. Williams, Jr; stepfather, Billy Joe Harvill; and her grandmother and best friend, Bessie Dickinson.

    I remember the day we met. You were working at Contempo with Kurt and waxed my eyebrows for me. When you accidently removed half of one eyebrow and I said "oh well, it'll grow back", we both broke out in giggles and never looked back. Through thick or thin we've been there for each ever since. So many happy times. A few sad times . So many precious memories I'll treasure forever. Thank God we went on that cruise last year. Who knew what this year would bring? So many tears sis and I have I've cried these last few days. So much sorrow for your family. The world has lost a beautiful and amazing woman but Heaven has gained a one of a kind angel. Hug JD for me. Until we meet again, Deda.

    Deda I love you so much and will miss you more we were so close and so much alike. I was your first niece and have always adored you. I have so many wonderful memories I will cherish forever. I am nkt ready to say goodbye but I know this was Gods will and you are with your true love JBaby, your parents, grandparents and loved ones. I smiled Saturday because I felt Gods presence when he called you home and knew you had a glorious homecoming I know JD was waiting on you and hes showing you around now. Heaven got one special angel thats for sure. I will do everything in my power to make sure your memory lives on I will make sure all your wishes are carried out.
