Linda Irene Ruffin entered enteral rest on Monday, March 2, 2020 at Henrico Doctors Hospital-Skipwith, in Richmond, VA. She was born on December 28, 1954 to David E. Dabney and the late Slyvester A. Dabney of Coatesville, VA. She was educated in the Hanover County Public School System and graduated from Patrick Henry High School. Linda accepted Christ at an early age at the St. James Baptist Church-Coatesville, VA. Linda is proceeded in death by her mother, Slyvester A. Dabney, and two brothers Warren and Hazel Dabney.

Linda absolutely loved people. A lifelong nurturer, Linda enjoyed cooking and taking care of others. She raised two children, Calvin Jr. and Veronica Ruffin and also other members of her family through the years. Linda was an active church member and served on the Hospitality Committee at Ebenezer Baptist Church.
