Mary Linda Jones Jenkins, age 76, of Kingston, went home to be with her blessed Savior Tuesday, November 1, 2022, the one whom she had wanted to see for so long. Her faith and joy are now complete. She was born June 2, 1946 in Campbell County, growing up in Jacksboro, Tennessee. Linda was a member of Victory Baptist Church in Kingston. She served the Lord faithfully, playing the piano and singing for over 35 years. Linda loved to laugh and read God‘s word. She was active in all her grandkids lives, helping to raise them in church. She also taught them to sing and to serve the Lord, teaching them the true meaning of family, loyalty, and devotion. She loved praising the Lord. Everyone knew if anyone could touch Jesus’ ear, it was her. Special thank you from the family to their brothers and sisters in Christ who have shared precious moments through the years and have prayed for them & held them up to Jesus when needed. Praise his name!
