Linda Joan Bryant, 68, went home to be with the Lord on Thursday, August 19, 2021. She was born April 27, 1953 in Euclid, OH to the late John L. and Irene X. Morgan. She had a strong faith and was a devoted servant of the Lord Jesus Christ. She filled many roles in Hope UM Church and later The Church on the Boulevard. Linda served as a missionary in Eastern Europe on several occasions. She mentored mothers at Akron Pregnancy Services, and blessed and enriched the lives of everyone she met. Linda made her home a refuge to anyone that needed one and was a mom to all. Her ministry extended into her nursing career as well. She enjoyed participating in the Fall Hiking Spree and running 5K’s. The swimming pool at her home was a gathering place for friends and neighbors, the Boys of Summer, family and church groups, including baptisms.
