Linda Starns (Hunt)

Linda Starns (Hunt)

Linda Starns Hunt, age 72, passed away peacefully on February 25, 2019 at home in Marietta, GA, with her loving family by her side. She was born to parents Earl and Ruth Starns on February 2, 1947, in Tampa, FL.  Following a move to St. Petersburg, she graduated from Northeast High School and worked initially as an operator for General Telephone.  Marriage ensued and she moved to Winston-Salem, NC where she started a family of one son and twin daughters and organized the first Mother of Twins Club for the city.  Next, moving to Marietta, they would raise their children and she would work for the Cobb County School System at McCleskey Middle School as a classroom paraprofessional.  Thereafter, she provided clerical support for the Counseling Office and the school staff, completing 25 years of service.  Her love for music was evident with founding memberships, starting the first Volunteer Band Parent Associations, supporting the opening of Lassiter and Pope High Schools, as well as membership in the Cobb County New Horizons Band, playing French horn.

She is preceded in death by her parents, brother Ronald and stepbrother Richard (Laura) and now is survived by her husband of 53 years, Ronald, son Darren (Lisa) of Marietta, daughter Christine Brogden (James) of Kennesaw, GA and daughter Kelli Fisher (Kendall) of Newnan, GA, stepmother Norma Starns and brothers Gary and Darrell of St. Petersburg, stepbrother William (Kathy) of Tampa;  grandchildren  Harrison, Christopher, Anderson, Alexander, James and Hunter, plus 2 nieces and 5 nephews.

A vast outpouring of love and emotions demonstrates the profound effect her life has had on friends and family throughout the 42 years of living in the area.  She is sadly missed, but awaiting us in a much better place!

A visitation for family and friends is scheduled for Saturday, March 9th, from 2-5pm at East Cobb United Methodist Church in Marietta, GA.  A memorial service to celebrate her life is anticipated in June.

So shocked and saddened to hear of Linda's passing.  I will always remember her as the "Life of the Party" at our reunions.  My deepest sympathies to Ron and her family.  She will be greatly missed.

I remember Linda from NEHI home room and band. We band members were close, like a family. Sounds like she had an interesting life. I’m sorry for her family’s loss.

I am so sorry and shocked to hear about Linda. She was always a sweet girl. At one of the reunions, we remembered the band and all the fun we had. Come to find out, we both lived in Marietta, GA at the same time for about 10 years with out knowing it. We decided that we probably passed each other at Publix on a weekly basis. Our prayers and kind thoughts go out to the family. She will surely be missed.

I was very much an introvert in high school.  I don't remember Linda from school, but as I was leaving the reunion, I talked to her and her husband who encouraged me to attend the next day's festivities.  She was so sweet.  Am so sorry to her husband and her family's loss.  Sounds like she was truly a lovely lady.

Through this toilsome world, alas!

Once and only once I pass;

If kindness I may show,

If a good deed I may do

to a suffering fellow man,

Let me do it while I can.

No delay, for it is plain

I shall not pass this way again.

Linda and I did not know one another in school. It's too bad because we could have been friends

We had a special talk at the 50th reunion that I truly enjoyed.

It was fun re-connecting with Linda at our 50th.  I loved that she and her hubby came to the banquet in gown and tux.  That was so special.  RIP dear Linda.

Linda's passing came as both a heartfelt loss and a friend to many taken too early. I
My condolences go out to her family and friends on their loss. My prayers for all who have are been touched by Linda.
