We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Heber Springs Funeral Home
Linda Lou Bynum Tillman, age 80, departed this mortal life on June 28, 2022. She was born on July 17, 1941 in the small community of Rosey Pocket in Northeast Arkansas. Nicknamed Sissy by her father, she was the second child and only daughter of Lem Bynum and Minnie Louise Morris. Linda grew up in the farming communities around Luxora, Arkansas. She has called Heber Springs her home for the last 15 years. She was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Cooking was one of Linda’s many talents. Taught by her mother early on, Linda excelled in her cooking skills. There was always plenty of home cooked food in her home. She learned to sew when she was young and became an excellent seamstress. This skill helped her in her employment for many years in the clothing manufacturing industry. Later in life she went back to school and earned a degree.
As an adult, she too up crocheting as a hobby. Through the years, she crocheted countless Afghans, baby blankets, tablecloths and many other things. Some of her crocheted items won first place ribbons at the Mississippi County Fair. After breaking her wrist as result of a fall, crocheting provided therapy for her wrist which helped her to recover. By then, she had plenty of grandchildren to crochet for.
Linda was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Carroll Tillman; her father, Lem Bynum; her mother, Minnie Louise Morris and two brothers, Lem and Jerry Bynum.
She is survived by one brother, Bobby Bynum of Temple, Texas; two sons, Ron Tillman (Debbie) and Greg Tillman (Jodi) both of Heber Springs; eight grandchildren, Tony (Rozlyn) of Memphis, Tennessee, Brad (Melissa) of Alexander, Arkansas, Jacob (Mary) of Heber Springs, Stuart (Laura) of Benton, Heather Baker (Ryan) of Blackfoot, Idaho, Haley of Conway, Devin (Morgan) of Fayetteville, and Tanner of Heber Springs and 19 great-grandchildren.
