A funeral service for Linda Wade Rush, age 68, of Sulphur Springs will be held at Mitchell Chapel on Wednesday, February 28, 2024. Linda passed away on Wednesday, February 21, 2024, at Carriage House Manor.

Linda was born to Bunnie Wade, March 15th, 1955. She graduated from Sulphur Springs High School in 1974. She accepted Christ as her Lord and Savior  and was a member at Morning Chapel Baptist Church.  Linda loved to cook for and feed everyone who came by, whether it be a visitor, the mailman or a sanitation worker; whoever it was, she was happy to see them.

Linda is survived by her mother, Bunnie Wade; daughters, Sonja Rush and Ashton Rush; granddaughter, Jayden Holly; sisters, June Person (Louie) and Youlanda Chancellor; aunt Grace Hawkins (O.L.); uncle, L.J Wade (Tonya) as well as a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and her best friend, Doris Palmer.

I'm Free 

Don’t grieve for me for now I’m free,

I’m following the path God laid for me

I took his hand when I heard him call,

I turned my back and left it all

I could not stay another day,

To laugh, to love, to work or play

Tasks left undone must stay that way,

I’ve found that peace at the close of day

If my parting has left a void,

Then fill it with remembered joy

A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss,

Ah yes, these things I too will miss

Be not burdened with times of sorrow,

I wish for you the sunshine of tomorrow

My life’s been full, I’ve savored much,

Good friends, good times, my loved one’s touch

If my time seemed all too brief,

Don’t lengthen it now with undue grief

Lift up your heart, rejoice with me,

God wanted me now, He set me free.
