Linda Bond Faust

Linda Bond Faust, age 60 of Maylene, went to be with the Lord on August 6, 2017, after a brave battle with infection and cancer. Born on January 14, 1957 in Greenville, Alabama, Linda grew up Garland with her parents, the late Levon and Marjorie Bond, and siblings. Linda was a graduate of McKenzie High School, Lurleen B. Wallace Community College, the University of Montevallo and Auburn University at Montgomery. While at Montevallo, she was a member of Alpha Gamma Delta Sorority. In her early career, Linda taught at the elementary level for sixteen years. She loved Kindergarten and teaching children how to read. After spending some time as a stay at home mom, Linda accomplished her dream of running her own business. Linda owned and managed Alabaster Florist for fifteen years. Her flower shop was her ministry and she touched the lives of many who walked through its doors. Linda is survived by her husband of 32 years Gary Donald Faust Jr. (Don), her daughter Audra Faust, and her siblings: Jerry Bond of Andalusia, Nancy Stephens of Montgomery, and Danny Bond of Honoraville. Visitation will be held at First Baptist Church of Alabaster on Saturday, August 12, 2017 from 10:00 Am to 11:00 Am. Funeral Service will follow at 11;00 AM at the church.

    So very sorry for your loss. I know it’s so very hard. I pray that God reaches down and helps you when you need it the most. I have always loved Linda and still considered her my sister n law. Best you both in the days to come. I will miss you and glad I was apart of life once. Gone but not forgotten

    So sorry to hear of Linda’s passing, she will be missed by all her florist friends. She was president of our local florist club for many years.

    Linda touched life in so many amazing ways. Her kindness and love impacted me greatly! She was the first person willing to help me at one of my lowest points when I first moved to Birmingham. Her smile and laughter always lit up a room. I am forever filled with love, gratitude and thanksgiving for the opportunity of having her in my life. Thank you Jesus for her friendship. May you all be lifted up during this time with the peace that only God can bring. Love ya’ll.

    So sad to know that Linda has gone on to be with God. There are so many good things I could say about Linda, as she was a wonderful, caring person. I had the honor of hiring her as an elementary teacher, and I thought that she was so good with young children. She put in many long hours preparing her classroom, making lesson plans, etc. She is missed. Loved her.

    Linda leaves behind a legacy of love for God. She will be missed in our Sunday School class and by all of us whose lives she touched. You are home now Linda!
