Linda Kay White

November 13, 1946 - November 10, 2020


Linda Kay White, age 73, of Morgantown passed away Tuesday, November 10, 2020 at WVU Medicine - JW Ruby Memorial Hospital with her daughter by her side.

She was born November 13, 1946 in Morgantown to late Ray and Mary Kay (Fields) Cress of Masontown, WV.

Linda was a devoted lover of animals and was particularly concerned with the welfare of dogs. She spent many hours volunteering at Animal Friends of North Central West Virginia Thrift Shop. She leaves behind her faithful pug companion, Duke, whom she loved very much.

On any given weekend, you could find Linda out and about at local yard sales. She loved the excitement of finding hidden treasures.

Although she suffered from painful Rheumatoid Arthritis for many years, she pushed herself to care for others. She always made sure her friends and family were alright and always told them she loved them.

Linda is survived by her husband Jeff White of Morgantown; daughter Mechelle Yost of Morgantown; son-in-law Brett Yost of Daybrook; granddaughter Savannah Yost of Matawan, NJ; grandson Pony Yost of Daybrook; a step-son Byron White and his family of Baldwin, FL; her sisters Barbara Hines of Barberton, OH and Cynthia McCloud of Kingwood, WV, and many beloved nieces and nephews.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by a brother, Jason "Butch" Cress and a sister, Debra Hartman.

At Linda's request, she has been cremated.

Her daughter would like to give special thanks to Jason and Cathy Smith at Smith Funeral & Cremation Care for the loving care given to her mom.

Smith Funeral & Cremation Care of Westover / Morgantown is privileged to care for the family.
