Those left to cherish her memory and the greatest joys of her life: Sons: C. Scott Stamper, (Louisville, KY) and Timothy Ryan Stamper, (Mt.

Linda was a devoted Christian who inspired many others through messages of Hope and Healing. Doctors, case managers, and personnel at the Cancer Treatment Center of Phoenix, Arizona were in awe by her continued cheerful spirit and optimistic attitude. She continued to help those that she came in contact with who were also suffering. Her email messages to family and friends exalted God and was a testament of her faith. "I know God is telling me to trust him and not be afraid. He will lead me to the rock that is higher than I and my circumstances, to take refuge in the shelter of his wings, where I can be absolutely secure. Trust in me and do not be afraid." A 1969 graduate of Mullens High School and a Morehead State University alumni, Linda was most recently employed with West Virginia University Extension Service as an Administrative Assistant in the Wyoming County Office. For approximately 20 years prior to moving to West Virginia, she was employed as a statistical analyst for Tyco Electronics, Harrisburg, PA. Linda was a phenomenal cook, loved gardening, sewing, and photography. She attended Reichs Evangelican Congregational Church in Marietta, PA where she served as past president of the Friendly Circle, taught Sunday School, served with the Awana team and Outreach Committee. Funeral services will be held on Monday, January 13, 2014 at 12 noon at Pierpoint Freewill Baptist Church, Pierpoint, W.Va. with Rev. Daniel Legg officiating. The family will receive visitors at the church from 11am until the time of the services. Interment will follow at the family cemetery on York Mountain. Family and friends will serve as pallbearers.
