After the passing of her beloved husband, John Haithcock, in 2004, Linda relocated to Raleigh, NC to be close to her daughter, April Flowers Thornton and grandchildren. While living in Raleigh, NC, Linda, daughter, and grandchildren faithfully attended Crossroads Fellowship. Linda always looked forward to attending Sunday service with family. She also loved traveling, reading, cooking, and watching the TMC channel along with Golden Girls and Gunsmoke.
