Linda Loretta Murphy Morris went home to be with her Lord on Thursday January 21, 2021. A Lakeland native born on September 14, 1946 to Alfred and Ella Murphy, she graduated from Lakeland High School and retired from GTE.

Linda was preceded in death by sisters Dorothy (Grady) Bowen and Katherine Evans. She is survived by her brother Donald (Faye) Murphy and a multitude of cherished nieces and nephews. Linda was an avid reader, especially mysteries. She enjoyed family time and vacations at the beach watching the sunset. She was a cut throat card player who either won or lost spectacularly. Her potato and fruit salads were always requested at holiday dinners. Linda was a passionate patriot. A Longmire and Bosch fan, she also enjoyed BBC series especially in Great Britain or Australia. She will be rooting for the Buccaneers!

Condolences may be sent to the family at Gentry-Morrison Funeral Homes.
