Linda Jean Owens Ricks, 73, of Raeford passed away on February 13, 2024. Born on August 31, 1950, to the late, Daune “Nub” and Hazel Owen.

Linda leaves behind to cherish her memory her children, Jennifer Stephens, Angel Core, and Derik Core; sister, Sandy and husband, Bob Phillips and their family and Shirely and husband, Dace Rice, and their family; grandchildren, Josh Casady, Kaela and husband, Aaron Noel, Thyne Adams; and great children, Lacie, Jaxx, and Millie Noel.

Linda touched many people’s lives with her charming and caring personality.  She was such a sweet lady and would do just about anything for anyone. She loved her family, gardening, cooking, and shopping! She loved going camping in her campers that were in the mountains and at the beach.

Linda loved her job, she had worked at Smitty’s Cleaners as a seamstress for 20 years where she eventually retired. Linda volunteered a lot of time to the church where she was a cook. She had retired from her working career so she could spend as much time as she could with her great grandchildren, she absolutely loved her great grandchildren.

She knew how to have fun and laugh no matter what the situation, she always knew what to say. She was the glue that held the family together. She will be greatly missed by many.

Daughter, Sister, Mother, Grandma, Great Grandma, and Friend. Linda will be missed……

The family will receive friends on Wednesday, February 21, 2024, at Rogers and Breece Funeral Home from 6 to 8pm.
