Linda Loretta Coxwell

Linda Loretta Clemmons Coxwell, age 82, passed away Tuesday, March 5, 2013. Mrs. Coxwell was born in Altha, Florida on June 20, 1930 to Dewey Lee and Ruby Barber Clemmons. Mrs. Coxwell lived in Blountstown, Florida until moving to Crawfordville, Florida, and then to Thomasville, Georgia. After retiring, she, her husband, and their son Sammy returned to Crawfordville. She was preceded in death by her husband of sixty-two years, Reverend Samuel Ancil Cowell; their son, Samuel Ancil Coxwell, Jr.; her parents; and her sister, Hilda Clemmons Alford.

Mrs. Coxwell was the loving wife of a Southern Baptist minister. She enjoyed teaching Sunday school, gardening, growing prize winning roses, arranging flowers, sewing, taking annual trips to the mountains, and cooking for her family and members of her church. Most of all, she loved caring for her home and family. She will be remembered for her beauty, her love of Jesus Christ, her homemade desserts and homegrown vegetables, and her fluffy, hot biscuits.

Survivors include her son, Ashley and his wife, Melissa of Callahan, Florida; her daughter, Dr. Deborah Coxwell-Teague and her husband Everett of Tallahassee, Florida; her daughter, Alicia Crittenden and her husband Bill of Acworth, Georgia; her sister, Juanita Clemmons Temple of Callahan, and her brother Dewey Lee Clemmons, Jr. and his wife Talitha of Williamsburg, Virginia.
