LINDA G.CHISM REESE
Athens/Quincy – Linda Gertrude Chism Reese, 70, started her new life in Heaven on August 24, 2020. Born in Becker, MS, she was a daughter of the late Harry and Reba Sanders Chism.
Linda grew up in a large family and learned early the value of family. She went to Becker school, then Aberdeen and eventually got her GED. A hardworking woman, she helped provide for her family and was a seamstress. She initially worked at Red Cap garment plant, McCoys Garment plant and Value Craft Furniture. She married the love of her life, Ted Reese on June 13, 1974, and together they were blessed with many children and grandchildren. She became affectionately known as “Nana” and she welcomed family and friends over all the time. She was most proud of raising her family and her wonderful long marriage to her husband Ted.
Her heart was so big that she made many friends through the years. She loved the Lord and lived out her faith day to day. A Christian, Linda had preached several times at True Word Gospel Church under Pastor Butch Brown. Throughout the years, she was always there for those in need. She was stern when needed in order to help guide people in the correct paths. Linda was outgoing, loving and devoted to her family. She liked to listen to country and gospel music. In her free time, she liked to fish, hunt, watch her family members as they dirt track raced, garden, can vegetables, crochet, and cook for family.
A great role model for her family and friends, Linda was a blessing to those who knew her. The memories made through the years will be cherished for generations to come. She will be missed dearly.
