Ms. Linda Wade Obituary


"By and by; when the morning comes, when all the saints of God are gathered home!  We’ll tell the story of how we’ve overcome, and we’ll understand it better by and by."

Linda Jacqueline Wade, daughter of the late Eloise Hilliard was born on November 30, 1951, in Manhattan, New York. 

She migrated to Georgia and later to South Carolina to live near her family.  She attended the public schools of New York.  

At an early age she accepted the Lord Jesus as her redeemer and savior and once moving to South Carolina she made Mt. Olive Baptist Church, Walterboro, South Carolina her home.  Linda was a faithful, dedicated member of Mt Olive. She was a dedicated member of the Mt. Olive Woman’s Missionary Society where she served as president until her health declined. She was an active member of the Sunday school, Senior Citizens Day Camp, Vacation Bible School, Wednesday Night Bible Study and Prayer Service. Most times she would arrive early and have to wait for someone to open the church. She was also active with the New Zion Baptist Association Missionary Auxiliary and served as the assistant secretary. She also was faithful with the Low Country District Missionaries as a member of the Nominating Committee. She was a registered delegate of the Woman’s Baptist Education and Missionary Convention of SC and in September 2019, she attended the National Baptist Convention, USA in New Orleans.

On Tuesday November 21, 2023, at Colleton Regional Hospital, surrounded by family, she quietly made the transition to her eternal home.  She brought so much love, joy, and comfort and kindness into the lives of her child, family and friends.  She will be sorely missed by many.
