Linda Sue Stroup, age 69, passed away unexpectedly Saturday, December 29, 2018.

She was born on January 24, 1949 to the late Jim and Beverly (Tumblin) Womer in Coshocton. She was married to Don Stroup for 39 years, until his passing. She was a 1967 graduate of Coshocton High School. She worked for many years as a receptionist for Dr. Honabarger and then for Dr. Salmans. She was also a receptionist for Emmanuel Lutheran Church. Her hobbies included gardening, trips to Amish Country, and playing cards with her friends. Linda was a devoted and loving mother. She was very proud of her family but nothing compared to the moment when she became a Nana. Her pride and joy were her grandchildren and she was there to support them in anything they were involved in. Linda is known for her feisty, yet good sense of humor. She will be greatly missed by all that knew and loved her.

Linda is survived by and was the beloved mother of TJ (Becky) Chaney of Westerville, Shelley (Denny Rhoades) Chaney of Las Vegas, NV, and a devoted Nana to her grandchildren, Dalton (Taleah), Hannah, Simon and Jack Chaney; great-grandchild, Zaylah Chaney. Linda was a cherished sister of Karen (Mike) Kirkbride of Lexington, KY., Vicki (Ron) Loescher of Cleveland and Kevin (Aleesa) Womer of Newark and a dear aunt to lots of nieces and nephews.

Friends and family will gather for calling hours at Given-Dawson-Paisley Funeral Home on Thursday, January 3, 2019 from 5pm to 8pm. Linda’s funeral service will be on Friday, January 4, 2019 at the funeral home at 1pm with an hour of calling hours prior. Reverend Ric Bonice will officiate the service as we celebrate her life. Burial will be at South Lawn Cemetery at a later date.

Linda was the cousin I’ve looked up to for many years. Though we didn’t talk every day, or sometimes every month, we ALWAYS picked up right where we left off. I loved her for who she was, but also b/c she was ALWAYS so INCREDIBLY good to my mother in my absence. In my eyes, Linda was always clothed in dignity, grace, strength, wisdom, courage, compassion and determination. She was the pillar of her family! I know that what she needed most was to love (and she did that well) & to be loved. Her family was her everything!!! I am blessed to be her cousin, Shelly & TJ were blessed to have her for their mother, Karen, Vickie & Kevin were blessed to call her sister, and her grandchildren were beyond blessed, just as she was with them. I know she will be missed beyond words by everyone who knew and loved her.
