Linda Icard

Mrs. Linda George Icard, 76, of Jonesboro, GA, passed away on Friday, September 24, 2021, at Southern Regional Medical Center. A graveside funeral service will be held at 3:00PM on Monday, September 27, 2021, at New Providence Baptist Church Cemetery with Rev. David Chapman officiating. The family will greet friends at graveside.

Mrs. Icard was born in Fulton County, GA, on July 29, 1945, the only daughter of Frank and Lennie Deleshaw George. She had one brother. She met her husband, Glenn (Bernie) Icard, Jr. while working at the Sears Warehouse in the packing department. They courted by airmail during the Vietnam War and married soon after his discharge from the Air Force after only about two dates. Glenn succumbed to the ravages of Agent Orange related illness from his military service. Linda retired from the Clayton County Juvenile Court System as their receptionist where she had many friends. She was an active member of First Baptist Church of Jonesboro, GA, and faithfully attended the bible study and Sunday School class of Norman Woods. She will be missed by her family and friends because of her generous nature, her friendly smile, and her big heart for those in need. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Glenn Icard, Jr., a brother, Frank George, Jr., and a sister-in-law, Lisa Icard.

She is survived by her brothers and sisters-in-law, Greg and Sheryl Icard, Sherry and Tommy McAllister, Rex Icard, and Ron and Kelli Icard; by her brother’s children, Gail Hendricks (Butch), Sheryl Gasses (Anthony), Glory Durham (Charles), and Frank George, III (Bubba); by other nieces and nephews, Greg and Ginny Icard, Jamie and Marie Icard, Dustin and Nicole Icard, Melissa and Jaime Meredith, Seth and Katelyn McAllister, Lauren and Mike Kelly, Keaton and Casey Icard, Hunter Icard, Austin Icard, and Logan Icard. Countless great and great-great nieces, nephews and cousins also survive.

Way-Watson Funeral Home, 1052 Dr. Deryl Hart Road, Buena Vista, Georgia has been entrusted with these arrangements.

Words cannot express the sadness I felt about Ms. Linda's passing. There are so many wonderful memories that I have of her. The way she made me laugh, talked to me all the time about life, always asked about my son and would even buy him things without being asked. The countless days of us going to lunch when she worked in the Clerk's Office at Juvenile Court in Clayton County and making me laugh and smile the whole time. I will truly miss Ms. Linda and hearing her stories about her cats and all the traveling she is going to do when she retires. It is my wish that God give her family and many friends the comfort to cope with losing such a wonderful person. I love you Ms. Linda and will always remember you. Rest in God's arms.

Offering my deepest and most sincere condolences to Miss Linda's family. I enjoyed working with her at the Juvenile Court. She had quite a sense of humor....I remember sitting with her at her reception desk and laughing many times. She kept all of our children's pictures taped around her desk and bulletin board area. She will be truly missed. Your family will remain in my prayers.

I have very many pleasant memories of discussions with both Linda and Glenn at the Juvenile Court in Clayton County, while waiting for court hearings. She was a very caring, generous person, and she will, without any doubt, leave quite a hole for her family and friends, though we have that Blessed Assurance that we will reunite with her in Heaven. May God grant peace and comfort for her family and friends in the coming days as they grieve her loss.

Greg, so sorry to hear about your mother. Sounds like she had a great life and loved the Lord so much. I would certainly love to see you and Cheryl. Come by if you have time and spend the night and visit. Love you and Cheryl.
