Edna Lee Love Linkous, age 88 of Christiansburg and formerly Draper passed away Wednesday, July 21, 2021 at her home.

Chester Edward Linkous, sisters, Virginia Sorah, Leona Riewee and brothers, William Love, Mack Love and Charles Love.
Edna was a godly wife, mother and granny to all. She was a hard worker and taught her children to be the same. She strived to live out her life as a faithful prayer warrior, the lover of all in showing hospitality and love to all that sat at her table. She lived out her faith with the hope of things to come. To trust and delight in the Lord as when we trust in him our hearts are transformed. Through that God gives us the desires of our hearts.
