Linda Beth Crowe Meers, 89, passed away on Sunday, April 11, 2021, at The Willows at Fritz Farm in Lexington, Kentucky. She was born in Estill County, on December 7, 1931, to the late Claude “Buddy” And Lena Clem Crowe.

After moving with her family to their farm in Trapp, Linda excelled in school and became the senior class treasurer of Clark County High School. She moved to Winchester immediately after graduation to begin what became her 54-year long career of administrative work, bookkeeping, and office management, 25 of which she worked at Pearce Phelps Roofing. She was known for being a diligent worker, avid volunteer, generous cook, enthusiastic Nana, and a wicked croquet opponent. She was a lifelong member of Dunaway Methodist Church.

The widow of Stanley Meers, Jr, Linda is survived by her children, Debra (Mark) Harris of Albuquerque, NM and Stanley (Donna) Meers III of Lexington, KY, grandchildren, Seth, Allyson, and Abigail and great-granddaughter, Chloe, brother, Alva (Jack) Crowe, sisters, Odean McKenzie and Mary Evelyn Morguson, and lots of much-loved nieces and nephews.

Though Linda moved away from Winchester well over 60 years ago, she frequently returned to Clark County, often with a car full of casseroles, ham biscuits, and butterscotch pies, and remained very close to her beloved family and lifelong friends.
