"Linda Rader, 95, of Paris died Friday Oct. 26, 2007, in Paris.
Funeral services are set for 11 a.m. Monday in the chapel of Fry-Gibbs Funeral Home with Dr. Randall Perry and Rev. Jim Semple officiating. Burial follows in Evergreen Cemetery.
The family receives friends from 3 to 5 p.m. Sunday at the funeral home.
She was born on Aug. 21, 1912, in Biardstown, a daughter of Charles Loveless Jamar and Nancy Black Jamar.
She was the first from her family to obtain a college degree from East Texas Teachers College now known as Texas A&M University — Commerce. She went on to raise her son, Terry Don Rader, with her husband of 70 years, Buck Rader, and teach special education for over 35 years at North Lamar ISD.
She was a member of First Baptist Church in Paris. Grandmother did not practice what she preached; she lived what she preached. Grandmother's wisdom will be greatly missed, but her spirit lives on with her family.
She was preceded in death by her parents; three brothers, Preston Everett Jamar, Charles Loveless Jamar Jr. and George Walter Jamar; and two sisters, Roxie Mae Loeffler and Bettie Lee Cherry.
She is survived by her husband, Buck Rader, whom she married on Sept 21, 1937, in Paris; son Terry Don Rader; daughter-in-law Mitzi Rader; granddaughters and spouses Kimberly Rene' Kozel and Alexander Kozel and Robin Cole Merlo and Bob Clift; great-granddaughters Candice Bailey Cole, Chantelle Kimberly Abbott, Casey Raines Cole, Kendra René Abbott and Milan Lexi Merlo.
Named as pallbearers are Alex Kozel, Paul Darnell, Creighton Pickering, Joel Peace, Randy Rader and Mike Darnell. Honorary pallbearers are Clyde Darnell, Dudley Parham and Kenneth Cherry.
Linda Rader, grandmother, was a Christian that touched everyone's life that crossed her path. Words can not begin to describe how much this family will miss her. Grandmother was the pillar of our family and the foundation we built our values upon.
