Linda Chaffin Mitchell 67, of Biloxi MS, former resident of Tallassee AL, sadly passed away October 5, 2016.
Funeral services will be Saturday, October 8, 2016, at 12:00noon from Jeffcoat Funeral Home Chapel with Minister Jimmy Mathews officiating. Burial will follow in Rose Hill Cemetery, Jeffcoat Funeral Home directing.
Linda will be remembered as a loving wife to her husband. They were two months shy of their 50th wedding anniversary. She will be missed as a devoted mother to her children, Grammy to grandkids and friend to so many. Linda had a way of making friends with anyone due to the genuine interest she had for other's lives and desire to see everyone be happy. She spent over three decades working for the VA. She touched many lives and hearts of patients and coworkers as the nurse manager of the Dementia/Alzheimer’s program at both Gulfport and Biloxi VA. She adamantly instructed everyone to celebrate her life rather than be sad, but she said a few tears would be okay (just enough to show she was important and cared for). She is survived by her childhood sweetheart and husband, James (Jim) Mitchell and three children, Tracy Lane (Alan), Jamie Cervi (Jason) and David (Linda was still actively searching for his spouse). She had three grandkids, Seth Mitchell, Ethan Cervi and Sarah Lane. She also is survived by her brother, Tommy Chaffin (Casey), sister, Tina Smith (Keith) and brother, Mark Chaffin and numerous nephews and nieces. Her last wishes included to be buried in Tallassee Alabama, her hometown, near her family. She will be greatly missed and leaves a giant hole in our hearts which she would tell us to fill with the love of Jesus, love for each other and Alabama football. She often joked about telling everyone that her last wish was for you to vote for Trump but we are not sure if she was really joking. She was serious about one wish and that was to give money to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, www.stjude.org, in lieu of buying flowers for her funeral. If she could tell you anything today, it certainly would be, "I love you all and thank you for the support, love and kindness you're giving my family through this time."
The family will receive friends Saturday, October 8th, from 10:30AM until service time at Jeffcoat Funeral Home.
