Linda Virginia Hicks, 59, of Indian Mills went home to be with the Lord, Thursday, September 3, 2020 at Ruby Memorial Hospital following a long illness.
Linda was born August 17, 1961 at Hot Springs, VA. She was a 35 year member of the Hinton Gospel Tabernacle. Linda was a mother to all the children of her community and church family. She was a caregiver to anyone in need. Linda was a former owner and operator of Old School Antiques. She was the happiest with a well stocked fridge and her family around the table. Linda was the best listener, a mender of broken hearts and a shoulder to cry on but she would give a swift kick in the pants when you needed it.
Those left to cherish her memory include her husband of 42 years, Rodger Lee Hicks of Indian Mills; four children, Marlena Gill and husband Tanner of Forest Hill, Melissa Smith and companion Curtis Shifflett of Standardsville, VA, Malynda “Mindy” Woodrum and husband Seth of Advance, NC and Amos Hicks of Indian Mills and five grandchildren, Logan, Luke and Kali Smith, T.J. Gill and Marlee Hicks.
Funeral services will be 2:00 P.M. Sunday, September 6, 2020 at the Ronald Meadows Funeral Parlors Chapel with Pastor Terry Weatherly officiating. Burial will follow in the Hicks Family Cemetery at Shepherd Mtn. Friends may call from 12:30 P.M. until time of services on Sunday at the funeral parlor.
Pallbearers: Logan and Luke Smith, T.J. Gill, Curtis Shifflett, David and Eli McKinney.
For the safety of the family and community precautionary guidelines will be followed.
