Linda Faye “Black Gal” Puckett of Oak Ridge, passed away September 2, 2021 at home. Linda was born, May 21, 1954, formally of Clinton, TN.
Preceded in death by infant son, Darrly Puckett; grandson, JaQueaze Puckett; parents, Lee Otis and Lela Puckett and her birth mother, Alma Jean Steiger Littlejohn.
She was a dedicated member of The House of Worship in Oak Ridge, TN. Linda loved to cook and dress well. She had a flair for fashion even in her older years. I watched as Linda’s love for the Lord grew over the years. This was evident in her volunteer spirit.
Linda was always helping someone anyway possible. When I think of Linda this bible verse comes to mind; “For God is not unjust, He will not forget how hard you worked for him and how you have shown your love to him by caring for other believers.” She will be extremely missed.
She is survived by son, Jamar Davell Puckett Sr. (LaTasha King); grandson, Jamar Puckett, Jr. bonus granddaughters, Malaya and Makailah Howard; brother, Alonzo Hill, Flint, Michigan; sisters, Sheryl Turk, Janet Barton, and Willie Bell Mills, Nashville, Tennessee; devoted nieces, Aretha Turk and Keadedra Turk; a host of nieces and nephews, special life long friends, Janet Barton and Alvin, and a host of cousins to include the Roberts Family.
