Linda Carrie (Hester) Mote

March 9, 1949 ~ December 30, 2021 (age 72)


 Linda Carrie Hester Mote, 72, of Bladenboro heard the call from Heaven on Thursday, December 30, 2021. She is preceded in death by her parents, Steve Hester Jr. and Gladys Turner Hester. Left to cherish her memory are her loving husband of 51 years, Elmer Mote of the home, two sons, Eddie Mote Jr. (Salena) of Fredericksburg, VA and Jonathan Mote of Asheville, NC, one brother Stephen Hester (Pinkey) of Bladenboro, one sister Sandra Durant of Florence, SC and two grandchildren, Lilly and Abby Mote.

Linda was a caring sister, wife, mother, and grandmother. She married the love of her life and together they raised and cared for their beautiful family. Linda retired from Bladen County DSS after 30 years of service. When not working, she enjoyed staying at home and spending time with her family. She loved to travel to the mountains, and she enjoyed eating out.  A light from the Mote home has left but they cherish the day when they will reunite again.

The family will receive friends from 6-8 pm on Sunday, January 2, 2022 at Bladen Gaskins Funeral Home in Elizabethtown. A graveside service is planned for Monday, January 3, 2022 at 11:00 am in the Hickory Grove Cemetery in Bladenboro with Rev. Mark Meadows officiating.
