Linda Carolyn (Rock) Elliott, 80, of Johnson City, Tenn., went home to be with the Lord on Sunday, November 6, 2022, at Johnson City Medical Center. Linda was born in Elizabethton, a daughter of the late Clarence and Blanche (Smith) Rock. In addition to her parents, Linda was preceded in death by three brothers, Howard Rock, Earl Rock and Velmer (Mary) Rock; one sister, Ruby (Oliver) Williams; and a brother-in-law, George Oller.
Linda was a loving wife, mother, and grandmother who was full of life and of love. She had worked as a nurse at Carter County Memorial Hospital and was a wonderful housewife, who took great care of her home. She was a member of Pinecrest Baptist Church where she sang in the choir. Linda had also attended Zion Baptist Church where she played the piano before moving to Johnson City. She loved to camp in her RV and had RV’d with her husband for many years after he retired. Her greatest joy was spending time with her family.
Those left to cherish Linda’s memory include her loving husband of 53 years, Richard Elliott, of the home; her son, Richie (Maleaha) Elliott of Jonesborough; her grandchildren, Jaden Elliott and Ava Elliott, both of Jonesborough; her sister, Alma Oller; and one sister-in-law, Ann Rock. Several nieces and nephews also survive.
A graveside service to honor and celebrate Linda’s life will be conducted at 11 a.m. Wednesday, November 9, at Happy Valley Memorial Park with Pastor Sherrel Nave officiating.
