It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved mother, Linda Poole. She passed peacefully in her sleep surrounded by family on Friday, April 7, 2023.

Linda was born to Tom and Eva Wilmeth on February 20, 1948, in Crockett, TX. Upon graduating high school, she went to work for Southwestern Bell as a telephone operator in Houston, TX. It was there she met a soldier, Calvin Poole, they fell in love and married on August 24, 1968.

In 1969, Calvin and Linda welcomed a son while stationed at Fort Knox, KY, in 1970 they welcomed a daughter while stationed at Wierzburg, Germany. Two years later in 1972 they welcomed another daughter while stationed at Fort Hood, TX, completing their family.

Linda loved flowers, cooking, shopping, and going to the smokey mountains, she also lived life to the fullest in everything she did.

She was preceded in death by her parents; four sisters, Carolyn, Sherry, Mary, and Joy; and her husband and love of her life, Calvin Poole.
