Linda Kay Duncan was born in Austin, Texas, to teenaged parents and raised by her maternal great-grandmother from the age of two days old. She was a prolific musician as a child, having proficiently played the viola, piano, and other instruments. She was incredibly gifted in the use of the English language, both in writing and verbal communication, as well as a fan of mathematics. She enjoyed reading legal documents and teaching herself what they meant.

She enjoyed both music and singing immensely, especially Karaoke with her three children, and possessed a well-honed voice that captivated audiences whenever they heard it. She also enjoyed playing pool and poker, both of which she was experienced in, and would often partake in both with her husband. 

Ms. Duncan was an immense animal lover, having owned dozens of animals in her lifetime and lovingly nurtured them throughout their lives. 

Ms. Duncan was a steadfast steward of mankind, which led her to a career as a Public Transit Operator; a career she enjoyed immensely for fifteen years. She loved serving the public, and the public loved her back. 

Ms. Duncan spent her final moments in concern for and service to others. Her love for and devotion to people in general is truly unmatched, and the world is a much less vibrant place without her in it.

Although she may be gone in person, her presence will always be felt in spirit and will always be lovingly remembered by those she left behind too soon.

She was preceded in death by mother Kathy Nelson (née Williams, 1952-1992), father Louis Duncan (1954-1998), and her Great-grandmother and lifelong guardian, Cora Thompson (née, Bishop, 1898-2000).

She is survived by her Husband Robert M. Lovings, sons JonTierry T. Scott & Lyndon C. Knotts, Jr, daughter Kysha T. Hayes, grandson Zachary Allen Biers (née, Kys’hario Tay’Shawn Hayes), and a host of various family members and friends, whom she loved endlessly.
