Linda Faye Boston, formerly of Bowling Green, KY, was the daughter of the late Aubrey Smith and Hattie Smith.

Linda was born June 17, 1940 in Warren County Kentucky.

Linda Smith grew up in Bowling Green, KY where she met and married her life partner, Dempsey "Bud" Boston. They embarked on their marriage journey in 1955. To this union was born 3 children, Terry Boston (Deceased) Tonia Gaddis (Allen) and Travis Boston (Jay). Linda was an active homemaker, she had a green thumb for flowers and plants and served many years in the banking industry. After the death of her husband Bud and then her oldest son Terry, she moved to Campbellsville to be closer to Tonia and her kids.

Linda took great pride in her home and was often on the cutting edge of fashion and design in decorating her home. She was a faithful and loving spouse, mother and grandmother. In her later years she very much enjoyed traveling with her family and she loved to tell them stories of her childhood and the early days of her and Bud's marriage.

Linda had professed faith in Christ and attended church with Allen and Tonia as her health allowed. She used to enjoy going to hear Allen sing in the Gospel group he was a part of.

Linda leaves to honor and cherish her memory her daughter Tonia (Allen) and her son Travis (Jay). Her brother, Doyle Smith, her Nephew Mark Smith (Liz) and her great niece Maddie. Her legacy also includes five Grandchildren: Joel (Deceased), Jessa, Jaxon, June, and Jenny Gaddis and a great nephew, Vincent Smith (Deceased).
