Linda Sue Witt, known to all as "Cricket", blessed us with her presence from October 22, 1949 until July 31, 2013. Cricket was one of a kind. To know her meant you saw the glow that no one could describe. What an impact she made on all who met her. She will always be remembered for her zest for life and shopping, her tenacity, her big, beautiful smile, and her unconditional love for her family and friends. The "Cricket Disease" meant laughter was always near because you never knew what mess she would find herself in and if you were around, somehow she pulled you right into it.
Cricket was creator, owner and master of all things at Danyel Cosmetics until she retired in 2012, passing the baton to her daughters.
She lived her life with the same generosity, determination, and curiosity that ultimately defined her and saw the deepest significance of her life in her relationship with her family, friends and clientele. If you were loved by her, you knew it.
Life by her example would be that you marry your best friend, love everyone unconditionally, spend time with your family and friends, take time each day to be thankful, hold hands, laugh until it hurts, perform random acts of kindness, treat yourself to a manicure and pedicure, take chances, and shop till you drop!
Cricket is survived by her loving and devoted husband of 47 years Bruce. She is Mama to Kimberly Stahlin (BJ) and Stacie Johnson (Scott). She is Nanny to Austin Rader, Racheal Bush, Jesse Johnson, Matthew Bush, and Joseph Johnson. She is also survived by her loving sister Dean Adamson (Johnny), and brothers James "Woody" Kinnard (Betty), Sherman "Peachy" Kinnard (Dean), sister-in-law Patricia "Shorty"Kinnard. Adored by nieces Teresa Herron (Leslie), Leanne Morris, Great Nieces Christina, Erica, Oliva (Tre) Tunstill, nephews Austin and Jonathan, great-great niece Caitlin and great-great nephew Braylin. Preceded in death by mother and father Gracie and Sherman Kinnard, and brother George "Bee" Kinnard. She is also survived by numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins.
Family will receive friends Friday and Saturday August 2nd and 3rd, 4 pm until 8 pm at Cole and Garrett, Goodlettsville, TN. A Celebration of Life Service will be Sunday 3pm at Temple Baptist, White House, TN with visitation one hour prior. Cole and Garrett Funeral Home (615) 859-5231.
