Linda Gail Smith Hooker, age 71, of Asheboro passed away on Sunday, January 23, 2022 at Alpine Health & Rehabilitation of Asheboro.

Ms. Hooker was born in Randolph County on July 25th, 1950, to the late J.C. and Alma Smith.  She worked at Tank and Tummy for many years, and she loved seeing her customers and interacting with them.  She was such a sweet soul and had such a contagious smile.  She loved her grandchildren and great-grandchildren so much.  She also loved her animals, if she could've, she would've taken in all the strays that she could.  In addition to her parents, Linda was preceded in death by her brother, Harold Smith, and sisters, Carolyn Allred and Joan Shehan, and granddaughter, Samantha Bishop.

She is survived by her fiancé of 25 years, Gary Happel of Asheboro; her son, Derek (Esther) Hooker of Asheboro; grandchildren, Kelly Lamb, Anthony (Kelly) Hooker, Brandon Hooker, Cassie Hooker, and Devon (Stevie) Hooker all of Asheboro, Cody Franks-Hooker of Lexington; 11 great-grandchildren; and sister-in-law, Judy Smith.

The family will receive friends on Saturday, January 29, 2022 from 12:30-1:45 pm at Pugh Funeral Home, 437 Sunset Avenue in Asheboro.  Funeral services will follow on Saturday at 2:00 pm at the Pugh Funeral Home Chapel with Rev.
