Linda S. McCain was born February 13, 1952 in Queens, NY to the (late) MaryAnn and Wade McCain. She slipped into a peaceful slumber on October 13, 2020. She married Michael Stewart in 1976. From this union two sons and one daughter were born. Her greatest joys were her children, grandchildren and family, which included her companion Rosie (her canine buddy). She also enjoyed making and wearing jewelry. Linda retired from the Bank of America in New York. Fortunately, Linda was able to spend a great deal of time with her parents (Wade & Anna McCain and her youngest sister Aaliyah). She looked forward to family gatherings, shopping (Dirt Cheap) and eating out.

Linda had an infectious smile. Even through the pain she would smile. This helped her developed a lot of friendships. One special friend was Fannie. Her love for the Lord was so deep that she wore several different hats for First Baptist & Bethel Baptist Georgiana, AL. She always wanted to help in any way possible (secretary, Sunday school teacher, cook, etc.)

Linda was a cancer survivor. She continued living a quality life, until an unforeseeable fall caused her to be in the hospital for 54 days before gaining her wings. Her presence will be greatly missed, a void hard to fill.

My best memories are when my aunt Linda would bring my cousin Christopher over to my house and her and my mom would cook. Aunt Linda was always trying to have a bbq on the spot or turn a visit into a party lol. I know that she would have loved to meet her Grand Nephew Song Pleasant and she was happy to be Grandtee Linda, I remember her always laughing and saying she was going to put us on punishment. I had good times when my aunt lived in San Diego and I have tons of memories ❤😘❤

My ultimate memory is the day that my sister was BLESSED WITH A SECOND OPPORTUNITY TO LIVE IN THE PHYSICAL WORLD.

My sister Linda was having artificial heart valve failure and drove herself to the ER where she flat lined at Sharp Mercy Hospital in Hillcrest San Diego about 30 years ago. My sister expired and was shocked back to life. I was at the hospital with my sister after her surgery and every single day of her recovery at which time we had lots of deep talks and I wanted to know what it felt like to be dead? Linda told me that death was the most peaceful state of calm the best feeling that she had ever experienced. When she was shocked back and could feel herself returning to her physical body she said that she did not want to return because that was how awesome it felt. She went on to say that the moment she reentered her physical body was the worst pain you could ever imagine from everything that was physically happening to her at the moment in the ER. Linda went on to receive a new pig skin heart valve to replace the old mechanical one that failed and was BLESSED to live another 30ish years on her Second Life.

Linda would say that she was part pig and I would tease her over the years calling her Charlotte from Charlotte's Web and we would laugh...I teased her because she was Goofy and had a tick that sounded like a clock from her heart. I would call her Peter Pan for the ticking clock in the story, we had a lot of inside jokes stemming from her surgery in the years that followed.

While you mourn the physical loss remember this~Linda was not afraid to die and neither am I because of her experience...she was able to live a quality second life and tried to the best of her personal ability to Love everyone around her.

Aunt Linda you were loved dearly and you will be missed. My memories of you was always a good time. You were so much fun to be around and you always made me laugh since a kid. As I look back at my last message between us I'm glad it ended with an I love you. Until we meet again rest peacefully Auntie.

Praying for my family and Aunt Linda's closest friends that are hurting right now in hopes that they find comfort during this difficult time.
