We are saddened to announce the passing of Linda Kaye Phelps Meredith Williams Sharpe.

She was born in Bogalusa, to Edward Phelps and Kathleen Woodard Phelps. She grew up in Dallas, Texas, and returned to Bogalusa at the age of 33, so that she could be around her family.

She was loved dearly and will be very missed by her friends and family.
