Linda Ruth McGehee, 77, of Nimitz, went home to be with the Lord Monday August 16, 2021 at Ruby Memorial Hospital in Morgantown following a short illness.
Born February 15, 1944, in Hurricane, she was the daughter of Howard and Virginia Maxine Estep Collins. She was a member of the Putnam County 4-H Club, a majorette at Hurricane High School and a Golden Horseshoe award winner. A homemaker, Linda loved the WVU Marching Band and grabbed every opportunity to go see them, and an avid fan of the Cincinnati Reds. She enjoyed fishing, spending time with her family and friends playing card games until the wee hours of the morning, and gave a piece of her heart to everyone who knew her.
Preceded in death by her son, Jeffrey Howard, brother, Jay Howard Collins, sister, Judith “Penny” Collins Qualls and grandson-in-law, David Lenox.
Those left to cherish her memory include her husband of 60 years, George “G.G.” McGehee of Nimitz, children, George “Greg” McGehee Jr. of Hurricane and Melisa D. McGehee of Winter Haven, FL; grandchildren, George Gregory McGehee III and wife Tiffany, Anna Nicole McGehee, Alyssa Dawn McGehee and Joshua Howard McGehee.
