Linda M. Liles

Linda M. Liles, 81, of Clinton, Tennessee, passed peacefully in the early morning of May 7, 2024.  Linda was born April 24, 1943, in Camden, Tennessee. She was preceded in death by her parents, Buford (Billy) and Estelle Medlin of Camden.

Linda is survived by her husband, Charles H. (Tony) Liles; her children, Greg (Marilyn) White, Gary (Malinda) White, Kelly Raye (Joseph Allen, Jr.) Williams, Michelle (David) Carnes, and Courtney (David) Franklin;  her grandchildren, Chelsae (Sage Parsons) White & Austin White (Greg’s children), Seth (Lauren) and Slade (Bailie) White (Gary’s Children), Brahn and Brianna Williams (Kelly Raye’s children); Hannah and Bryce Carnes (Michelle’s children), Olivia and Ava Franklin (Courtney’s Children); her great-grandchildren, Elliston and Shepard White (Slade’s children), Roman White (Seth’s child), Cash Carnes (Bryce’s child); various nieces, nephews, cousins and many cherished friends.

Linda attended Bruceton-Hollow Rock High School and dedicated most of her professional career to bookkeeping. She enjoyed spending time with family and friends, chocolate in any form, water skiing, boating, riding motorcycles, cooking, playing cards, and dancing. For several years, she was an active member of the Cimarron Dance Club in Nashville, Tennessee.

Linda and Tony were members of Clinton Church of God and First Baptist Church in Clinton, Tennessee.

Linda was a fantastic baker who generously shared her delicious cakes. She could be counted on to play cards every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, but come three o’clock, the game could only go on with her McDonald’s coffee break. 

Linda was a loving and gentle soul who possessed a measure of unfailing strength, stamina, and perseverance. She was beloved as a wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and friend.

On Saturday, May 25, 2024, the family will receive family and friends from 1:30-2 p.m. at Holley-Gamble Funeral Home, 621 S. Charles G. Seivers Blvd, Clinton, Tennessee. A celebration of life ceremony will follow for Linda at 2 p.m.

A graveside service will be held at 2 p.m. Sunday, May 26, 2024, at Benton Memory Gardens, 2780 Highway 69A, Camden.

In lieu of flowers, please send a charitable contribution to the Clinton Community Pantry at Clinton Church of God, P.O. Box 21, Clinton, TN 37717.
