Linda Ann Jamerson Carr, 67, of Williamsburg, VA, passed away on Wednesday, January 24, 2024. She was a strong, Christian woman who was faithful to her church and a pillar to her family. Linda was a lover of life and a risk taker. It was very rare that she would allow herself to be excluded from any activity due to being on the tank unless she exhausted every other option.

She was born in Williamsburg, Virginia at Bell Hospital in 1956 to Myrtle Irene Jamerson and Robert Nelson Jamerson Sr., who taught their children that laughter was to be frequent and genuine. Once Myrtle was getting to the point where she could no longer walk, Linda had gifted her a wheelchair so she could take her to Newport News Park to see the water. While Linda was pushing the wheelchair, she got stuck on the roots and almost dumped her mom into the water. Linda was petrified and Myrtle just laughed and laughed. They never missed an opportunity to laugh together. Robert taught the kids that mom came first. He would stop at 7-11 and have only enough money to get one thing and he would use it to get Myrtle something and she would always share what he got her with their children. Because of her parents’ teachings Linda learned how to cherish her family, act selflessly, and that laughter is always the best medicine.

Linda met the love of her life, Barney in 1979 at a bowling alley by James River Bridge. Linda’s brother, Nelson, insisted that Linda go out with him on a blind date. Nelson’s friend was unable to attend the date and Barney stepped in. Linda made sure that Barney was aware he needed to stay on his side of the car and she didn’t allow him to buy anything for her. After that first date, they were inseparable, excited to start their new lives together, the two were married February 9, 1980 and stayed happily married for the remainder of her life. They would’ve been celebrating 45 years together, this year alongside their ever-growing family.

Linda and Barney couldn’t wait to start a family of their own, and their children meant the world to them. They had two children together, Robert Hugh Carr and Rebecca Ann Ferrans. As much as Linda loved her role as a mother, she thoroughly enjoyed her promotion to grandmother and then great-grandmother. Since she was always so active in her church, she made sure that her family was properly educated on the teachings of the Bible. Linda’s family was her greatest accomplishment in her eyes and she could not have been prouder of the family she created.

Linda will always be remembered for her kindness and strength. We’ll always imagine hearing her contagious laugh one more time. We couldn’t have asked for a better partner, parent, grandparent, sibling, or friend, and will miss Linda every day. Her memory will live on in the hearts of all those who loved her.

Linda was preceded in death by her parents, Myrtle and Robert Jamerson. She is survived by Byron Carr (Husband), Rebecca Ferrans (Daughter), Steven Ferrans (Son In-Law), Robert Carr (Son), Deanna Ferrans (Granddaughter), Kristy Torrey (Granddaughter), Bradley Ferrans (Grandson), Kristalyn Younger (Great-Granddaughter), Nancy Lynn Burns (Sister), Robert Nelson Jamerson Jr. (Brother) and Thomas R. Jamerson (Brother).

The family will receive friends from 4:00 – 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday, January 30, 2024 at Weymouth Funeral Home. Funeral Services will be conducted at 2:00 p.m. on Wednesday, January 31, 2024 at the funeral home with interment to follow at Peninsula Memorial Park.

In lieu of flowers, the family ask for donations to be made https://scleroderma.org/ in honor of Linda’s memory. Arrangements by Weymouth Funeral Home.

I've been thinking about Linda a lot lately and was wondering how she was. I lost touch with her several years ago but I have fond memories of our times together at Tabb Church. My thoughts and prayers go out to all of her family.

Linda always had a smile on her face and her and Barney were so hospitable when visiting their home. A Christian through and through and sweet cousin who will be missed but not for too long as we shall meet again on that glad reunion day!!

She was a true lover of life, her God and family. She never met a stranger and loved all animals esp. dogs. She is with her parents and thankfully not sick and suffering anymore but her loved ones here below will miss her terribly.
