Linda Murray, 74, a resident of Cleveland, Tennessee, passed away on Monday, November 6, 2017.

She was a faithful member at Macedonia Baptist Church.

She will be remembered as a loving and caring wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and friend.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Clyde and Velma Silvers; and brothers, Austin Silvers, Thomas P. Silvers, and James Silvers.

Linda leaves behind to cherish her memory, her loving husband of 54 years, C.L. Murray; children, Rodney Murray (Pamela) and Lori Underwood (David); grandchildren, Hannah Jane Underwood and Andrew Underwood; siblings, Steve Silvers, Terry Silvers, Charles Silvers, and Janice Matthews; as well as numerous nieces, nephews, extended family, and friends.
