Mrs. Hembree was a dedicated homemaker and devoted her entire life to her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. She has been an example for each of us to follow and we have been taught many life lessons by having her as our mother. “We are each who we are because of her.” We give thanks for the life she lived and the blessings she brought to each of us.

She is survived by two sons, Burton Hembree (Renée Lewis), and Allen Hembree both of Salem, SC; two daughters, Debora Henson (Roger) of Canton, NC, and Tammy Crenshaw (Sammy) of Salem, SC; nine grandchildren, seven great-grandchildren; and two great-grandchildren blessings on the way.

We are so sorry for your loss. Linda was a sweet lady and was really good about calling Mother after Daddy passed away. They were all such good friends and now they are all resting in the arms of Jesus. We will be praying for you.

Aunt Linda will be missed, I haven't seen her in many years, but know she would have welcomed me and my family with open arms. My condolences to her entire family. She will be missed. Looking at her picture reminded me so much of looking at her sister (Rebecca Adams). May she be in heaven with her sparkling wings. If there is anything I can do for the family, please don't hesitate to ask. Rest in peace my great Aunt Linda. You are already loved and missed by all of your family and friends.
