Linda was born July 2, 1941 in Anson County, NC and was a daughter of the late Jodie Ralph Davis and the late Loise Alice Horne Davis. She was a graduate of Peachland High School. She had worked with B.C. Moore’s Department Store in Wadesboro, at Autumn Care in Marshville in the dietary department but was best knowns for working with Happy Day’s Day Care in Peachland. She dearly loved her time spent with the children at Happy Days and was often referred to as “Miss Aunt Linda” through the years by her children.
A woman of strong faith, she was a life-time member of New Home Baptist Church in Peachland and lived her faith before her friends and family.
She was also known well for being an accomplished seamstress. She made clothing for her three girls when they were growing up and she would sew for others in the community. She could look at an article of clothing and sit down at her sewing machine and make it and often made her own patterns, too. A few of her daughter’s memories of their “seamstress mother”, are red pillows she made for each of them for Christmas one year, making the dresses for her daughter, Tammy’s bridesmaids and making the wedding gown for her daughter, Wanda, hand sewing 250 pearls on the gown.
Those left to cherish her memory are her daughters and sons-in-law, Tammy and Ellis Parker of Polkton, Debbie and Randall Bailey of Chesterfield, SC and Lewis Taylor of Peachland; her grandchildren, Josh Parker of Peachland, Hannah Damico-Parker (Kari) of Apex, Aaron Parker (Mary Kait) of Ruby, SC, Mallary Hanna (Zac) of Lilesville, Gavin Bailey (Brittney) of Chesterfield, SC, Katie Taylor of Peachland and Makayla Bailey of Chesterfield, SC; her great-grandchildren, Eli, Eva, Annabelle, Josie Rae, Daniel, Allison, Loretta, Charlotte and Makaylee; her sisters and brother-in-law, Betty Hasty of Peachland, Ruby Curran of Polkton, Martha Davis of Peachland and Karen and Jodie Hyatt of Rock Hill, SC; her brother and sisters-in-law, Robert and Robin Davis of Peachland, Gilla Davis of Wadesboro and Glenda Davis of Peachland and her nieces and nephews and their families.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Wiley Ray Brewer; her daughter, Wanda Taylor and her brothers, Roy Davis and Boyce Davis.
