Linda Haire Elmore of Whitwell, TN. passed away Saturday, March 4, 2023, surrounded by her family. She was a member of Victory Baptist Church. She was a loving wife, mother and Nana/Nanny. She was passionate about her love for God, her family, her church, and animals. Her hobbies were her church, talking on the phone, reading love story novels and watching t.v. She let everyone know her biggest desire was that all her family be saved. She was the matriarch of the family and had the heart of a servant who always took care of everyone. She was simple and down to earth and never had big dreams or aspirations of being anything other than a wife, mother and grandmother. She was never interested in a career as it took too much time from family. She was not much of a traveler as she said her only desired destinations were her home and heaven. She was a best friend to so many. She will be remembered for her heart, laugh, smile, and feistiness. She will forever be in our hearts until we are reunited with her again in heaven.
She was preceded in death by her Father Clifford Haire and Mother Evelyn ( Freeman) Haire and three brothers; James Haire, Joel Haire and Carlton Haire.
