Linda Hughes Tate, 66, of Ruther Glen went to be with the Lord on Mother's Day, May 14, 2017, at Memorial Regional Medical Center. She was a happy soul who could light up a room just by walking through the door.

Linda was passionate about many things, but no more so than her love for her family and friends. She was the daughter of the late Robert B. Hughes, Jr. and Gladys Bishop. Her brother, Robert B. Hughes, III, and nephew, Robert B. Hughes, IV, preceded her in death.

Linda married the love of her life, James R. "Buster" Tate, Jr., on May 20, 1972. Together they had many adventures, including the years they lived in Londonderry, Northern Ireland when Jaime was a wee girl.

She enjoyed being around people, loved to laugh, and was known for her quick wit and her love of a good joke.

Surviving with Buster are their daughter and son-in-law, Jaime and Curtis Kimbel, and beloved grandchildren, Angelina Christine "Doodlebug" Kimbel and Tristan James Kimbel; also a host of extended family and cherished friends.

A funeral service will be held Wednesday, May 17, 2017, at 2 p.m. at Carmel Baptist Church, Ruther Glen, with burial to follow in the church cemetery. The family will receive friends from noon – 2 p.m. at the church.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Caroline County Agricultural Fair Association, P. O. Box 1207, Ruther Glen, VA 22546. Condolences may be left for the family at
