Linda Elizabeth Bryant
July 3, 1929 – March 11, 2021
Linda Elizabeth Bryant went to be with the Lord on March 11, 2021 where she will be reunited with her husband, parents, children and siblings. She was born on July 3, 1929 in Cleveland, Texas to Odis and Winnie Hair. She was married Roy Curtis Bryant for 53 years until he went to be with the Lord on May 17, 2003. In 1980 Roy and Linda moved from Houston to Conroe. She attended Sunday school at West Conroe Baptist Church for over 20 years. Linda is preceded in death by her parents, brothers; Dusty Hair, Buddy Hair, Nubin Hair, and sisters Evelyn Greer, Tommie Winters, Winnie Jean Bowden, Barbara “Bea” Hubert, Jan Enloe and her sons Robert, Jimmy and Patrick Bryant.
Linda is survived by her brother in law Belton Enloe, children Patricia Whatley and Odis Bryant; son in law Gus Whatley; daughter in law Lisa Bryant; grandchildren Kimberly Bryant, Kelly Neves, Jennifer Bryant, Patty Whatley, Travis Bryant and Jacob Bryant; great grandchildren Alex, Troy, Luke, Braden, Landon and Bentley; numerous nieces, nephews, and friends.
Linda was a loving mother, granny, sister, aunt, and friend to so many. She never met a stranger, always had a smile on her face, expected a hug hello and goodbye, and her laugh was infectious. She enjoyed cutting up, visiting and laughing with everyone. If you stopped by her house, she would ask you to stay for a cup of coffee or a Klondike bar. Linda is in Heaven, but will not be forgotten. She will be greatly missed.
Visitation will be at Metcalf Funeral Directors in Conroe on Monday, March 15, 2021 from 5-7 p.m. Her celebration of life will be Tuesday, March 16, 2021 in the Metcalf Memorial Chapel at 10:00am. Interment will be at Houston National Cemetery on March 24, 2021 at 10 a.m.

We are so saddened to hear about our dear friend Linda. She has been a part of our lives since Charlie and Otis became friends in gradeschool. They have been inseparable, so we go back quite a ways. She will be so sorely missed. At the same time we are overjoyed that she is in Heaven with Our Savior and her family and friends. RIP Linda

I moved to Texas in 2007 knowing absolutely no one in Conroe. Very soon after, I was introduced to Linda and instantly made to feel like one of the family.
Linda was generous with her home, her heart, her food and her humour. She welcomed me in to her life and in the absence of all four of my own grandparents, in no uncertain terms became a ‘Granny’ to me.
My happiest memories were simply of spending time in her company, surrounded by the incredible family she had made. Thanksgiving was like no other; volumes of relatives and friends enveloping Linda in love and she at the centre of all the action, keeping us on our toes with her sense of humour and infectious laugh.
Over the years since I moved back to England, Odis has helped me keep in touch with Linda and her news and I am so grateful to him for including me in this way.
In my mind there can be fewer things more Christlike than accepting a perfect stranger in to your home and making that person feel safe and loved.
I will miss those special times immensely, but I am so very glad my husband and children got to know her too and that she is now with our Lord in Heaven.
Linda’s generosity of heart carries on through her wonderful family who I send every condolence to at this time.
With all our love from, Katherine, Michael, Raffy, Lucia, Dino and Etta.

Please know you and your family are in our thoughts and prayers at this time. My late father was Linda's high school basketball coach and pastor at Tarkington. He also married her and Blackie and was very fond of them. Linda was always laughing and made everyone feel like they were part of her family. May she rest in peace.
Roberto, Laurann Diaz and family
