MYRTLE BEACH—Linda Boyd Cantey, 65, passed away peacefully on July 7 at home surrounded by her loving family.

Linda fought a very long, courageous battle, and she leaves behind a lifetime of beautiful memories filled with love and devotion to her husband and family.

Linda was born on Feb. 8, 1954, in Kingstree. She was the daughter of the late Leo and Christine Wrenn and the late Kenneth E. Boyd.

Linda enjoyed the simple things in life, such as cooking a delicious southern meal, working in her yard, spending fun times and holidays with family, and sitting on her back porch listening to her favorite music.

Going to Linda and Jay’s home for family gatherings was the highlight of the holidays for everyone.

Linda is survived by her loving husband of 40 years, J.L. “Jay” Cantey Jr.; sisters Lois Boyd of Murrells Inlet, Tracy (Will) Harper of Spartanburg and Wendy (Tony) Henderson of Pawleys Island; nephew Stephan (Lana) Henderson; nieces Leah Henderson Monteleone (John Brady), Meredith Dark and Kaitlyn Henderson(Bryson Faggart) and great-nieces Grace, Vanessa and Hazel Henderson, and Cali Monteleone.

Linda will be dearly missed by her beloved little companion, Abby.

The family will receive friends from 1-2 p.m., Thursday, July 11, 2019, at McMillan-Small Funeral Home, 910 67th Ave North, Myrtle Beach, SC 29572.

A memorial service was held July 11 in the chapel of McMillan-Small Funeral Home with the Rev. Meredith Dark and William Harper officiating. Burial was private.

The family requests that memorial donations may be made in Linda’s name to Heartland Hospice, 2411 N. Oak Street, Myrtle Beach, SC 29577.
