Linda Thompson Gebelein


Linda Thompson Gebelein, age 58, died on Saturday, May 27, 2017 at her home in Huntersville, N.C. surrounded by her loving family, after a long courageous battle against cancer.

Linda was born October 14, 1958 in Baltimore, Md., the daughter of John Julius Thompson and Betty Sue Thompson. She grew up in Baltimore, attended Towson University and moved to North Carolina with her husband and children in 1997. Linda cared deeply for her husband, children, and grandchildren. Her life was centered on her family, and one of the greatest sources of joy for her in later years was the time she spent with her two grandsons, who affectionately called her their “Ma.” Linda had a great love and passion for music and served as a private piano teacher and worked as a musician at various churches throughout the region during her life. She studied music in college, and it was during one of those classes that she first met her beloved husband, Wayne. The two were married in 1980.

Linda is survived by her husband, as well as a son, Michael Gebelein, and his wife, Shana; two grandsons, Connor Lee Gebelein and Jacob Henry Gebelein; daughter, Rachel Gebelein Mulock, and her husband, Geoffrey Mulock; a daughter-in-love, Sarah Cothren; parents, John and Betty Sue Thompson; and brother, John Kent Thompson.

Memorials may be made to the St. Jude Children’s Hospital.

A visitation was held from 5 until 7 p.m., Tuesday, May 30, 2017 at James Funeral Home. The memorial service was held at 11 a.m. Wednesday, May 31, 2017 James Funeral Home.
