“So sorry for you loss My God Bless you and your family Deanna Jones (Ryan) ”
1 of 1 | Posted by: Deanna Jones(Ryan) - Family

GREENVILLE - Linda Jane Embry, 79, of Greenville, died Monday, July 1, 2019, at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville. Mrs. Embry was born December 25, 1939, in Muhlenberg County. She was a loving mother, grandmother, and wife. She was a generous, caring soul who was willing to go to great lengths to assure her children and grandchildren were taken care of. She was willing to take in complete strangers and put a roof over their heads. She had a sense of humor that knew no end, and a genuine sparkle that is rarely found. The family rushed to her kitchen for fried chicken and her breakfast gravy. She will be sorely missed by all that knew her. We'll miss you, grandma.

She leaves behind her husband, James Embry; son Kevin Embry; brother David Smith; and grandchildren Scott, Lucas, Nick, and Autumn Leach, and Justin and Alex Embry.

Joint funeral services for Mrs. Embry and her daughter, Karen Leach, will be Friday, July 5, 2019, at 1:00PM at Tucker Funeral Home in Central City, with Pastor David Rose and Rev. Louis Embry officiating. Burial in Nebo Cemetery. Visitation will be Friday after 11:00AM at the funeral home. Online condolences may be made at
