Linda Arnett Koontz, 72, of Millers Creek passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday, Aug. 27, 2019. She was born July 17, 1947, in St. Augustine, Fla., to Dalton and Catherine Tedder Arnett.

Linda was a loving mother, grandmother and devoted wife. She was a remarkable cook and enjoyed hosting holidays with family. She was an avid traveler who loved discovering new roads and shortcuts. She had a passion for quilting, trying new styles and patterns while creating incredible quilts.  She played piano beautifully, with one of her favorites being Nadia’s Theme, which could fill up the room. She was truly talented.

Linda was very artistic and creative. Her favorite memories were baking Christmas cookies with her children and grandchildren and picking out holiday decorations. Linda loved all aspects of life and tried to experience as much of it as possible. There are no words to accurately express the love she had for others. Linda touched and enriched so many lives, and we know she will continue to enrich us all from heaven.

Linda is survived by her husband, Coy Alton Koontz Jr.  of the home; two daughters, Suzanne Koontz of Millers Creek and Ashley Weaver and husband, Rick, of Melbourne, Fla.; three grandchildren, Chase Vogt, Shelby Vogt and Sean Weaver; two brothers, Glenn Arnett and wife, Lynn, of St. Augustine, Fla., and Virgil Arnett of Georgia; and her devoted dog, Toby.

Graveside services will be held at a later date in Florida.
