Mrs. Linda Stitcher Long
Mrs. Linda Stitcher Long, 75, of Newnan, GA, died Thursday, Dec. 20, 2012, at Atlanta Medical Center.
She was born Nov. 15, 1937, in Newnan, GA to the late Buford & Essie Neill Stitcher. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her beloved son, Emmett R. Long Jr.
Linda was the beloved matriarch of her family and she leaves a lasting legacy to all whom she knew and loved. She was known by many as a pioneer, a visionary, a comedian, a scholar, a historian, and her death leaves a void in the hearts of her family and in this community.

Burial will follow at Oak Hill Cemetery. The visitation is Friday evening between 6 and 8 at McKoon Funeral Home, 38 Jackson St., Newnan.
