Linda Mae Roark of Guyton, Georgia cashed in her ticket for her own private Elvis concert at 1:18pm, November 29, 2022. Her children, Paul and Jennifer Booth, along with their father, John Booth, were by her side while she waited in the ticket line.
She was known as Nana by her grandchildren Hunter Booth, Ethan Hey, Madison Whitaker, Cade Booth and Harper Booth; as well as by her great grandchildren Luke and Jett Whitaker.
Linda was born in Bluefield, VA on August 16, 1947 to Gladys and Gaither Roark and is still known as Sissy by her brother, Jim Roark.
She moved to Jacksonville when she was 12 and graduated from Andrew Jackson High School in 1965. She went on to attend Massey Business College and graduated in 1966. After marrying John, she enjoyed being an Air Force spouse and spent time in Missouri, North Carolina, Texas, Florida (again), Spain, Germany, Nevada and Alabama. Upon retirement from GSA she moved to Florida for a third time before settling near Paul and her grandchildren in Guyton, GA.
Nana spent time with her grandchildren sharing her favorite cream cheese brownie recipe, watching Perry Mason and coloring. She enjoyed reading and playing puzzle and card games, especially cribbage and Yahtzee.
We will be celebrating Nana with an open house at Paul and Brandy Booth's home, 134 Sapphire Circle Guyton, GA on Friday, December 2, 2022 from 4pm to 7pm.
