Obituary

On December 29, 2021, Linda L. (Evans) Ward of Gilbert, West Virginia departed this life from her earthly home and opened her eyes to her Lord, Jesus Christ. In Heaven, she is reunited with her high school sweetheart and husband of 46 years, David Ward Sr.

Linda fought a long battle with heart disease and diabetes that ended peacefully as she fell asleep here and awoke with Jesus. She left Man High School as a junior to marry and start a family. She later continued her education and retired from Logan County Board of Education as a schoolteacher in 2019. She very much enjoyed being a full time Gran. Her life was devoted to Jesus, her husband, her children, and grandchildren. She was the epitome of a wife, mother, and grandmother.
