Linda Faye Lofton

S. Connor Memorial Funeral Home Staff will continue to keep your family in our prayers. We thank you for allowing us to serve your family.

Linda Faye Lofton, 61, (Formerly of Wayne County) transitioned from earth on Thursday, February 18, 2021, in Santa Clarita, California  Born to the late Truman and Verniece (Washington) Lofton on January 22, 1960. Linda was reared on her family farm with her ten siblings in Goldsboro, North Carolina.  

Linda's faith in God was central to he life. She shared her love of God with others through her many musical talents. Her angelic voice was often heard in concert with her siblings and in church choirs. Linda was also a talented musician and songwriter. Linda's song "There Is a Reason" is still sung today by those blessed to have known her.

An avid fan of the UNC Tar Heels, Linda could be found on game day cheering on the Tar Heels as they executed the four corners offense. Linda was a graduate of Rosewood High School. Linda remained true to her Carolinian roots by continuing her education at East Carolina University where she received a bachelor's degree in Education.

Service to others was a core value Linda held and displayed through her professional endeavors and spiritual walk. She made the ultimate commitment to service when she joined the United States Air Force where she served as a Personnel Specialist, achieving the rank of Senior Airman.

Linda was known as a gentle soul. Although she was a quiet presence, her passing leaves an immeasurable void for those she encountered.
