Joan "Linda" Barrett

December 7, 1948 — July 3, 2024

Greenville, SC

Joan "Linda" Barrett, a beacon of selfless love and creative spirit, passed away on July 3, 2024, in Greenville, SC. Born on December 7, 1948, in Cullowhee, NC, Linda's nurturing presence and loving nature touched the lives of everyone she encountered.

Linda dedicated 32 years of her life to the noble profession of nursing, working at Greenville Memorial Hospital in the labor and delivery department. Her passion for helping others was evident in the gentle care she provided to countless families, guiding them through one of the most significant moments of their lives. Her commitment to her work was matched only by her devotion to her own family.

Married for 51 years to her beloved husband, John Barrett, Linda was the loving mother of Sarah Barrett (Ricky Hymel) and Trish Barlet (Tom Barlet). She cherished her role as a grandmother to Kaylee Barlet, Aubrey Moore (Ashton Moore), and Alison Barlet, always finding new ways to express her love and creativity. Linda's siblings, Evelyn Bryson, Terry Moody, and Christy Taylor, will remember her as a sister who brought joy and warmth to their lives.

Linda's interests outside of her professional and family life were as vibrant and nurturing as she was. An avid lover of nature, she found solace in the beauty of flowers and could often be found bird watching, with a particular fondness for hummingbirds. Her love for the outdoors extended to going fishing, where she found tranquility and joy in the simplicity of the experience.

Spending time with her grandchildren was one of Linda's greatest pleasures. She imparted wisdom, laughter, and countless memories that will be cherished for generations. Family trips to the beach were a highlight for Linda, where the sun, sand, and sea provided a backdrop for unforgettable family moments.

Linda's legacy is one of love, care, and the joy of life's simple pleasures. Her selfless nature was a guiding light to her family, friends, and the many lives she touched through her work. Her creative soul found expression in every aspect of her life, from her nurturing of people to her appreciation of the natural world.

As we bid farewell to Joan "Linda" Barrett, we celebrate a life lived with boundless love and an enduring spirit of giving. Her memory will live on in the hearts of those who were fortunate enough to know her, and her influence will continue to be felt through the lives she touched.
