Mrs. Linda Leola Ross York, age 72, of Elkin, passed away on Tuesday, August 29, 2023, at Pruitt Healthcare in Elkin. She was a strong woman who loved her family who had fought a battle with her health, but God stopped by on Tuesday and healed her and said it’s time to come home. We know she walked down the golden streets and ran into the arms of her loving husband, Dwight. She then turned around hugged and kissed her granddaughter, Hannah.
Mrs. York was born May 15, 1951, in Surry County to the late Carl L. Ross and the late Lona Mae Bray Ross. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her loving husband, Dwight Alfred York; her granddaughter, Hannah Brady; her sister, Doris Ann Taylor; and a son-in-law, Darren Brady.
Left to cherish her memories are her children, Lona York (Harold Davis), Alfred York, Lisa Brady (Chris Burkhart); grandchildren, Zach York (Rebecca), Heather Brady (Gary Barnes), Amber York (Stephanie), Kendra York, Leah Martin (Justin), Charity Galyean; and in the home great-grandchildren, Scarlett York and Kayleigh Noah; and several other great- grandchildren that she loved. Also several other family members; her sister Carol Brown; several nieces and nephews; and special friend, Martha Pierce.
