Canton - Linda Earley Towe went home to be with The Lord on Saturday, September 17th, 2022 in the comfort of her loving home at the age of 73.

Linda was born February 22, 1949 in Haywood County to the late Wiley C. Earley, Sr. and the late Nellie Chapman Earley, and was a lifelong resident of Canton.

She devoted her entire life to worshipping the Lord, taking care of her family in every way, and mentoring her many beloved students whom she taught in the computer lab at Clyde Elementary School.

Linda lived an amazing life full of traveling, sharing quality time with her loved ones, and being a high faithful presence in her church. Mrs. Towe was a role model, a selfless woman, a true nurturer, and a devoted prayer warrior. She touched the lives of every person she encountered through prayer, her uplifting spirit, and her exceptional kindness. Linda enjoyed camping at Davidson River, the peaceful morning time, cooking and baking for any and every occasion, and sharing stories and memories of her youth with her grandchildren.

“I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith” -2 Timothy 4:7

Linda was a wonderful role model for me. When I was a teenager, Linda led our church youth group. She prayed with me & for me. When I think of Linda, I think of her rejoicing in the Lord. Pentecostal worship was very evident in her life. I loved Linda, & look forward to joining her in her heavenly home.

Jerry and family, I am so sorry to hear about Linda and Barbara. God has promised that He will not put more on us than we can bare and he knows your faith! He tell’s us as believers to stand to fill in the gap for our brother and sister to hold them up in prayer. I pray for peace,comfort,understanding, and most of all joy to know these two Christian Women has made it home! No more pain or suffering no more tears. Our family will be praying for you all.
