On the morning of Sunday, October 13, 2013 another angel was given her wings. Linda Nell McCoy Hiberd, age 73, slipped peacefully into the arms of Jesus at her home surrounded by her family.

She loved spending time with her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. But her most cherished person was her husband, James; they recently celebrated their 56th wedding anniversary together.
