What a joyous reunion it was Saturday, Feb. 23, 2019, when Linda Rae Dew Pope, 86, born July 22, 1932, in Buies Creek, was reunited with her father and mother, Cecil Kyle Dew and Lois Agnes Warren Dew. Also there to greet her was her husband, Johnnie Alderman Pope; and brother; Robert Glenn Dew. Also in her welcoming group were her daughter-in-law and son-in-law, Laura Zygmunt Pope and Ernest Leslie Geddie. The youngest member of her beloved family to greet her was her great-grandson, Tyler James Pope. Our earthy loss is their heavenly gain.

Remaining to be reunited are Linda’s son and daughter, Robert Cecil Pope and Janice Pope Geddie; grandsons, Scott Christopher Pope, Travis Ray Geddie and Christopher Lee Geddie; and great-granddaughter, Emily Madison Pope; and special inclusion of Emily’s mother, Tina Kummelman.

A celebration of Linda’s life will be held at 11 a.m., Thursday, Feb. 28, at Andrews Mortuary Market Street Chapel with Dr. Bill Guthrie officiating. Her family will receive friends at the mortuary from 10 to 11 a.m. prior to services. Interment will follow in Greenlawn Memorial Park.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests any donations would be welcomed to The Laura Z. Pope Nursing Scholarship Program at UNCW, Piecemakers of Barlow Vista Baptist Church or Lower Cape Fear Hospice.

Share online condolences with the family at Andrews Mortuary & Crematory.
