Linda Boyd Cantey, 65, of Myrtle Beach, SC, passed away peacefully on July 7, 2019, at home surrounded by her loving family. Linda fought a very long, courageous battle, and she leaves behind a lifetime of beautiful memories filled with love and devotion to her husband and family.
Linda was born on February 8, 1954, in Kingstree, SC. She was the daughter of the late Leo and Christine Wrenn, and the late Kenneth E. Boyd.
Linda enjoyed the simple things in life, such as cooking a delicious southern meal, working in her yard, spending fun times and holidays with family, and sitting on her back porch listening to her favorite music. Going to Linda and Jay’s home for family gatherings was the highlight of the holidays for everyone.
