Linda Kay Fair

November 29, 1946 — August 26, 2023

Sumerco, WV

Linda Kay Price Fair went to be with the Lord in her home on August 26th, 2023 surrounded by those that loved her.

Born in Madison, WV to Woodrow and Janet Price on November 29th, 1946. She was full of life and individuality from early on. During her formative years she graduated from Scott High School.  After graduating high school, she moved to the Washington D.C.  area where she would meet her husband Ted Fair. She gained a wonderful son in Eric when they joined together and went on to have her son Travis Fair.  While the boys were growing up she spent her best times watching her sons on the basketball court, golf course, baseball diamond and soccer field, but especially loved watching them on the football field with her cowbell. After retirement Linda and Ted moved to Florida where they always belonged. Linda loved the beach and would spend every minute of free time she had sunbathing with her toes in the sand. To be closer to family Ted and Linda moved back to WV where she was a devoted member of New Vision Baptist Church in Madison, WV. Linda enjoyed dancing like no one was watching, and it wasn’t often that you didn’t see her dressed to the nines with her signature high heels on. She never met a stranger and would turn heads into every room she walked into. Her laughter was contagious and would fill everyone’s souls with joy. She was always a class act and her sassiness was contagious to all those around her. She shared a unique and special bond with her sisters Dinah and Kimmy and her very special brother Jimmy. She had a one-of-a-kind relationship with her son Travis. The two of them were best friends and would do anything and everything for each other. From the day he was born to the last breath she took Trav was her guiding light.  She loved Eric as if she had given birth to him.  She was a boy mom in the truest meaning of the phrase. She loved sports especially her beloved Washington Redskins! Her favorite past time was spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren. She never missed a game or performance even if it meant she was leaving a hospital stay to get there. Linda loved all of her grandchildren but shared a unique bond with Lydia and Tyson. Lydia and Mamaw had a special bond that no one could break. They would often have sleepovers where they would giggle and talk about anything and everything until the wee hours of the morning. Especially when Lydia was little you could hear her walking around the house in Mamaw’s high heels putting on a fashion show. Mamaw was her secret keeper. She always told Lydia that beauty hurts and that she loved her to the moon and back. She always wished that Julius and Saija lived closer so she could have a closer relationship with them. She would brag on and on about her two wonderful grandchildren that lived in Canada. She enjoyed finding special and unique gifts for them to show her love. Tyson loved his Mamaw so much that when they would go out, he would take his time and walk with her so that she would rest every few steps. He always reassured her that it was ok.  He would often go to her home to help her with housework and yard work.

She was proceeded in death by her parents Woodrow and Janet Price, and husband Ted Fair.

She is survived by her sons Travis (Holla) Fair, and Eric (Heather) Fair; sisters Dinah (Bobby) Harless, Kim (John) Sturgeon; brother Jim (Joni) Price; step daughter Sarah (Ryan) Clemente, and her fiancé Earl Hoskins who always says Linda was the love of his life. Her grandchildren were the very light of her life, Lydia, Tyson, Julius and Saija Fair, Zoe, Nolan and Penelope Clemente. Linda cherished her family more than anything in the world including her nieces and nephews Terry (Jennifer) and Rocky (Denise) Harless, Sean (Nikki) Nelson, Jameson (Meredith) and Christopher Price, Lillee Stowers and Isabella (Noah) McNeely; great nieces and nephews; Jaxson and Tori Harless, Nickolas Snodgrass, Haley (Alex) Castorena, Jasmine and Keven Price, Sophia Jones, Liam and Tucker Nelson. In only a way that Linda could she became a very integral part of two special friends lives; Brandi (Shea and Tristan Osborne), and Katie (Jackson Seabolt) McVey.
