Chapel Hill, NC
Linnie Causey, longtime resident of Jackson and Brandon, Miss., died Feb. 11 at 84. She was preceded in death in 2011 by her husband of 59 years, John W. "Bill" Causey. She lived the past four years in an assisted living facility in Chapel Hill, N.C. Survivors include children John, Virginia, and Linnie Causey, and granddaughter Linnie Greene.
She was born in Glen Allan, Miss., grew up in Hattiesburg and Laurel, and was a proud alumna of Mississippi State College for Women.
Linnie dedicated her life to nurturing her children and caring for family and friends. A fabulous cook, she shared the redemptive power of her food with loved ones and strangers alike. Her sharp wit and sometimes sharper tongue entertained everyone lucky enough to know her. The world is a duller place without her.
