With her daughter and best friend by her side, Linda Sue Akers Whitt, age 73, passed away peacefully at 11:00 am Monday morning, July 18th, 2022. Linda was born December 13, 1948 in Freeport, Texas. She grew up Lake Jackson, Texas, until the family moved to a beautiful country house in Angleton.  She graduated from Angleton High School, and in 1974, Linda moved to Houston with her best friend Sue. In 1975 on a blind date, she met the love of her life, Johnny, and married him three months later. They were inseparable.  They loved riding motorcycles together, going to Las Vegas, and taking annual trips to the river with family and friends. Together, they raised their children and welcomed their grandchildren into the same home where they lived very happily for 43 years.

For over 50 years, Linda worked as a hair stylist. She started off in shops in Angleton, Memorial City, and Cypress, but she ultimately opened her own shop called Chat-N-Curl in Houston. Eventually, she moved her business to her home where her customers weren’t just clients but life-long friends.

Linda was affectionately known as “Granny” to her five grandsons. She loved having them sleep over, playing a fun game of Texas hold ‘em with them, and going to the beach and the river with them. She especially loved watching their baseball and football games and cheering them on. She adored them, bragged on them, and loved them dearly.

Linda was so joyful and always had an upbeat, positive attitude. She never complained, ever.  Linda never met a stranger. She was so kind and caring and invested in everyone she met. She was generous to a fault. She had a wonderful contagious laugh. When you walked in the door, you knew you would be greeted with a big smile, a "hi, honey!" and a big hug. She had a green thumb, her house was always immaculate, she was a great cook, and loved to entertain. Linda was fun! Anyone visiting the Whitt home knew they could count on great food, a swim in the pool, maybe a game of poker, hearing lots of stories and laughter, and taking away great memories to cherish forever.

She is preceded in death by her husband of 43 years, Johnny C. Whitt, her parents Forest and Johnny Mae Akers, and sister Wanda Gail Beaver. She is survived by her daughter and son-in-law Stacy and Tim Johnson of Southlake, Dallas, her son and daughter-in-law Brad and Keri Whitt of Houston, five grandsons Maverick Jay, Weston Forest, and Lucas McCain Johnson and Cade Thomas and Brady Samuel Whitt, her sisters and brothers-in-law Connie and Thomas Smith and Dianna and Tommy Norris, as well as numerous nieces and nephews, great nieces and nephews, and even great-great nieces and nephews. She loved them all dearly as they loved her.

Linda found Christ and had a personal relationship with him. She was ready to meet her Lord and left us with wonderful memories. We will always remember her famous words, “Love you all the time!”
