Published 12:38 pm Tuesday, February 13, 2024

Linda “Lindie” Magdalene Partin Upton, age 76 of Middlesboro, Ky gained her Heavenly wings on Saturday, February 10th, 2024. She was saved as a young woman and served the Lord faithfully until her last breath. She used that last breath to thank her Heavenly Father for coming to get her. She was a member of Calvary Missionary Baptist Church.

Lindie was born on June 15th,1947 to the late Caid and Rachel (Luckadoo ) Partin. She was a faithful prayer warrior to anyone in need of prayer. She kept a prayer box and would write down all the needs as they were given to her and pray over it multiple times daily. When those prayers were answered she removed them from the box. There was such a peace knowing that she “put you in her box” as she would say. You knew that she was praying fervently.

In addition to her parents, she’s preceded in death by one brother, Everett Partin, and three sisters, Ethel Miller Goodin, Thelma Jean Patterson and Catie Partin. Lindie never had children, but she was preceded in death by a very special fur baby that she loved like a child, named Tiny.
