Linda Phipps Miller

Linda Phipps Miller, 82, passed away at her home on Monday, October 23, 2023 surrounded by her family.  Linda was born in Whitsett on December 3, 1940 to the late Charles and Elsie Phipps.  She has attended and been a faithful member at Mt.

Linda attended Alamance High School and UNCG Commercial, graduating in 1959.  Linda was an avid book reader, exchanging with many friends.  She also enjoyed gardening, playing cards and growing many beautiful flowers.  She loved spending time with her princess cat “M”., family and friends.  Linda was a devoted mother to her two children and experienced much joy with her grandchildren and step grandchildren.  Her gentle spirit, born of a deep faith, comforted so many throughout her life.  Her laugh, her smile, her unconditional love truly reflected the best and most beautiful of God’s light on earth.
