Linda L. Copley

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Linda Lou Copley, age 71, formerly of Ashtabula and Inez, Ky., died peacefully at her home in Nashville on March 27, 2013. 

She was born July 29, 1941, in Ashtabula, the fifth of eight children of Charles C. III and Mary (Dunham) Ralph. A 1959 graduate of Harbor High, Linda married Wayne Copley in 1966 and together they raised three sons and one step-son.

She is survived by her sons, Marty (Destuny), John (Michelle) and Kurt (Kim) Copley; six grandchildren, Ayden, Alivia, Delainey, Caleb, Katie, and Davis, all of Nashville; step-grandson, Jason (Jessica) Copley; and great-granddaughter, Haley of Wilder, Ky.; step-granddaughter, Carol Wolf; and great-granddaughter, Kaylin of Nashville. She is also survived by two sisters, Mary Ann (John) Morris and Nancy Ralph and brother, Walter Ralph, all of Ashtabula; sister-in-law, Carolyn Ralph of Geneva; and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.

Preceding her in death were her husband; parents; sisters, Diana (Leo) Callahan and Barbara Green; brothers, Charles C. Ralph IV and Marvin (Carolyn) Ralph); and step-son, Clifford Dale Copley.

A Celebration of Life Gathering will be held from 2 to 6 p.m., TODAY, May 19th, at the Moose Lodge, 3001 North Bend Road, Ashtabula. Linda requested that family and friends join together to share some of her favorite things, including two of the most important: good food and visiting loved ones. Join us as we laugh a lot and cry a little, reminiscing and strengthening the ties that lovingly bind us.

If desired, memorial contributions can be made to your choice of Diabetes Action Research and Education Foundation, Lung Cancer Alliance, National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc. or your local animal shelter or rescue group. Addresses will be available at the gathering or you can call her sister, Nancy Ralph of Ashtabula.
