Linda Scott Smith passed away on February 19, 2021. Surrounded by loving family and life-long friends, Linda died peacefully at her home in Pine Knoll Shores. Born in Edgecombe County on October 16, 1943, she grew up in Pinetops, N.C., the daughter of the late Milton M. Scott and Betty Hearne Forbes Scott. She was also preceded in death by her brother Pete Scott and her husband, Jimmie D. Smith, Jr from Rocky Mount, where she also resided for over thirty years.
Linda was an avid people person with a larger than life personality. When she wasn’t enjoying golf or bridge, she might be cruising the ocean, zip lining in the jungle or enjoying special times with her beloved daughter Shawn, who she lovingly called Pud. She was quick to make friends and everyone she encountered felt her warm presence and high energy wherever she went. One of her friends commented that only Linda's heart was bigger than she was. Linda was known for her generosity to her community and to anyone in need. She will best be remembered for being a loving mother and a faithful and loyal friend.
Linda is survived by her daughter Shawn and son-in-law Dan of Colorado Springs; brothers Bob Scott (Wanda) of Supply, N.C. and Ed Scott (Rachel) of Montgomery, TX.
