Linda Jewell Priest Flippo

Linda Jewell Priest Flippo, 81, of Hazen, AR passed away in Little Rock, AR on February 22, 2024. She was born on May 22, 1942, in Levy, AR to the late Nathan Woodrow (N.W.) Priest and Wilma Bernice Jenkins Priest.

When her sons were young Linda liked to cut their hair at home. After one of those cuts resulted in the disappearance of half an eyebrow and being told that would be their last of her haircuts, Linda enrolled in and graduated from Barber School. She then gave quality haircuts in DeValls Bluff and Hazen for many years.

During her pastimes Linda enjoyed quilting and entered her crafts in the Prairie County Fair where she won several ribbons. She also spent time quilting and crafting with her husband, Tommy, as his caregiver for sixteen years. Star patterned quilt tops, birdhouses, and anything Razorback became specialties at the Flippo residence.

Linda was preceded in death by her husband Tommy Flippo Sr., her mother Wilma Priest, her father N.W. Priest, and her sister Norma Jeffcoat.

Survivors include sons Tommy Flippo Jr. of Hazen, AR, Johnny Flippo and wife Sherry of Little Rock, AR, two sisters Robbie Pendergrass of Jacksonville, AR, and Jo Ellingson and husband Larry Don of Biscoe, AR, grandsons Ryan Flippo, and Ross Simpson, and several loving nieces and nephews.

    So very sorry. I knew your mom very well but ofcourse haven’t seen her in years. I knew she had been sick for years. I know she’s in a better place and it will take years and years to adjust her not being with u in the present. But remember she’ll always be watching over you. Love Pam Del Giorno

    I love the photo of Linda just like I remember her I always enjoyed going to her parent’s home
    Linda was very artistic and crafty at a young age. I remember once for Easter she made a hat using the base of an oatmeal round container I don’t remember what the hat look like. I remember how clever the idea was
    My heart goes out to her sisters Robbie and Joe and prayers to her family

    Love Macie

    I am so sorry to hear of Linda’s passing but I know her and Tommy are reunited in Heaven. I am Tommy’s cousin from his Uncle Bernell Flippo. May God give you comfort. She was a sweet and fine lady.
