She was born in Bowdon, Ga., on March 16, 1942, to the later J.D. and Angie Calhoun. She was the youngest of four siblings, all of whom preceded her in death. Linda was married for over 50 years to Dr. Charles H. Perry Jr. They met while they were attending Georgia Institute of Technology.

After Charles completed his doctorate, the family moved to Statesboro, where Linda volunteered with Monday Morning Workers and the Helping Hands organizations of the First United Methodist Church.
