Linda Sims Sides was born in Hopewell, Alabama on January 17, 1943. Linda believed in family and cherished (either laughing or crying) with every moment. Parents were Edward Sims and Inez Lewis and was one of five siblings: Annette Martin (Sonny), Genevieve Keith, Donald Sims (Nancy), Diane Dewitt (Phillip) and Steve Sims (Nadine) to Edward Sims and Inez Lewis. Linda was a dedicated and hard worker. She worked at Rich’s / Macy’s as a Sales Associate for 38 years before retiring in October 2018. She was such a private person and never wanted to ask for assistance or to bother anyone. She was a kind person and was there to lend a hand or comment (open to interpretation). Bossy but she had the best Linda intentions. Linda was a devoted and loving mother of Brett Sides McAnally (Larry) and William Barry Sides (Kristine). She was very proud of her family and excited to be “Grammie” to Leigh, Abbey, Chloe, Jonathan (Megan) and Dustin. Family and friends will gather at the Jefferson Home Memorial on Friday, April 19, 2019 for visitation 1:00 p.m.-2:00 p.m. immediately followed by a Funeral Service at 2:00 p.m.
