Ms. Linda Faye Lightfoot, age 72, entered eternal rest September 21, 2021, at home, surrounded by her loved ones. She was born June 30, 1949, to Mr. Earl Lightfoot Sr. and Mrs. Mary Lightfoot in Huntsville, Alabama. She attended school in Huntsville, Alabama and in Knoxville, Tennessee. She would later join Smith Chapel Church of God in Knoxville. She worked for the Peroulas family for many years.
