Linda Battle
  • 48 years old
  • Date of birth: Jun 19, 1962
  • Date of passing: Jul 26, 2010
Let the memory of Linda be with us forever

Linda Claire (Alexander) Battle, 48, of Gaylord, passed away peacefully in her sleep on July 26, 2010 at her home. Donald and Violet Alexander welcomed their beautiful daughter to this world on June 19, 1962. Linda was raised in Gaylord with her 3 siblings: Jack (Cheryl) Alexander of Gaylord, Ron (Margy) Alexander of Gaylord, and Laura (Rick) Spreeman of Vanderbilt. Linda attended Gaylord Community Schools all though her childhood. While attending bible camp at the young age of 14, Linda met her husband, Kevin Battle. On June 6, 1980 Linda graduated from Gaylord High School and on June 7, 1980, Linda married the love of her life. Linda and Kevin were meant for each other and knew that from the beginning. Together, they had 3 beautiful children: Kevin Ryan, 27, of Gaylord, Justin Daniel, 24, of Greenville, NC, and Nicole Rebecca, 22 of Gaylord. Linda always knew that she wanted to raise her family surrounded by God, Love and Family so she and Kevin settled in Gaylord where they watched their children grow up together. As a family, they shared their religion with the Gaylord Nazarene and Gaylord Community Church families. Linda’s pride and joy was her Grandson, Blake Jackson Battle, 4, born January 29, 2006 to Nicole Rebecca. Linda never lost her faith in Our Savior all through her life. She taught her family and friends the true meaning of Christ and how to live life to the fullest. The people who were fortunate enough to have known Linda knew that she was a woman of God who could light up any room with her contagious smile. Linda worked at Aspen Ridge where she used her gift working with the elderly and their families. Linda made a big impact on every person she talked to. The Battle/Alexander/Spreeman families were overcome with sadness with her sudden passing, but with God and Linda’s strength that each one lives by, it will get easier for them. Linda has a favorite scripture that she lived by day to day. It was taught to her by her father, “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Psalms 46:1” Without a shadow of a doubt, her family and friends know that Linda is walking with her savior, Jesus Christ in the Kingdom of Heaven. She will live on in memories, and through her family. God Bless Linda Alexander Battle. You will be missed dearly.

Memorial Tributes
This tribute was added by Linda Foster on 26th July 2016

"May God be with you Nicole and comfort and hold you! And to all of your family who miss your Mom so much!

God be with you till we meet again;
by his counsels guide, uphold you,
with his sheep securely fold you;
God be with you till we meet again.
Refrain:
Till we meet, till we meet,
till we meet at Jesus' feet;
till we meet, till we meet,
God be with you till we meet again.

2. God be with you till we meet again;
neath his wings securely hide you,
daily manna still provide you;
God be with you till we meet again.
(Refrain)

3. God be with you till we meet again;
when life's perils thick confound you,
put his arms unfailing round you;
God be with you till we meet again.
(Refrain)

4. God be with you till we meet again;
keep love's banner floating o'er you,
smite death's threatening wave before you;
God be with you till we meet again.

We cannot bring her back but we can go to be with her and with Jesus in that land where we won't grow old and there will be no sickness nor death. Only light and joy."
