Linda Jett was born November 24, 1947 in El Dorado, AR to Roy Lee and Lorine P. Chelette. She entered into rest on Saturday, November 14, 2015 following a brief illness.
Linda had many careers, a writer at the El Dorado News Times, author of the “Bonnie and Clyde Biography,” a guard at David Wade Correctional Center, store clerk and security guard. But by far the jobs she was most proud of were wife to Hank, mother to Eiko, Trevor and Amanda and grandmother to Jacob, Caleb and Chancerie. She loved her horses, Sonny and Emmett, and her dog, Honey Bee and her cats. She enjoyed watching the birds in her yard, feeding the squirrels and tending her flower beds.
Linda danced into the gates of Heaven on Saturday morning November 14, 2015, where she was greeted by her parents, Roy Lee and Lorine Chellette, her twin brothers, Ronald and Donald Chelette, as well as, her sister and brother in law Pat and Joe Wilkins.
Linda is survived by her husband, Gessner “Hank” Jett; two daughters, Eiko Strickland of Shreveport, LA and Amanda Gayle Peaden and husband Daniel of Athens, LA; her son, Trevor Gist of Homer, LA; three grandchildren that she was very proud of, Jacob Peaden, Caleb Peaden and Chancerie Duddridge. She is also survived by her sister, Patricia Emanuel and husband Don; a brother, Glen Chelette and wife Tammi; along with numerous nieces and nephews.
Pallbearers were Finnis Zappa, Daniel Peaden, Jacob Peaden, Caleb Peaden, Keith Watkins and James W. “Buzzy” Buckner.
Honorary pallbearers were Mike Thompson, Don Emanuel and Ragan Baker.
In lieu of flowers honoring Linda Jett, the family suggest American Cancer Society or the Presbyterian Church of Athens, LA.
