Linda was devoted to helping others. She worked in Dr. Burn’s office for 30+ years and retired from Chesney’s Jewelry store. She loved to volunteer at West Columbia First Baptist Church where she was a proud member of the Sunday school group, prayer chain, and on the food committee feeding many families for different occasions.

The Hightower family spent many hours watching numerous games of the Fighting Texas Aggies at Texas A&M where their late son, Timmy, graduated college.
