Linda Fay Williamson Bramblett


On Tuesday, February 2, 2021, Linda Fay Williamson Bramblett, loving mother and devoted grandmother, passed this earthly realm and is now in the arms of her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Born May 10, 1939 in Nashville, Tennessee to James Kenneth and Ena Irene (Yearwood) Williamson. Linda was raised in Shelbyville, Tennessee, graduated from Shelbyville Central High School where her love for mathematics, leadership and service began. These qualities were nurtured during her years at Vanderbilt University, as a member of Gamma Phi Beta sorority, where she earned her Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics. She went on to receive her Masters of Arts in Mathematics at Middle Tennessee State University and ultimately, a degree from the American Bankers Association Stonier Graduate School of Banking, Rutgers University.

In her working years, Linda achieved great success in the vocations of a high school teacher at Shelbyville Central High School, an educator at Middle Tennessee State University, an executive banker at Peoples National Bank in Shelbyville and a sales consultant for Design-Build Concepts, a major financial architectural firm out of Atlanta, Georgia. Through these experiences, Linda's success was superseded only by the dear friendships she created along the way, connections she maintained across the years. No matter whether you had known her from birth, grade school, high school, college, or in the business world and after, each person she loved truly knew the depth of love and respect she had for them - she thought of each and every one of them as extended family and treated them as such.

Linda is survived by her daughters, EnaShea Bramblett Kohler (Chris) and Alexandra Bramblett Burlason (Bruce); four adored grandchildren, Isabelle, Max, Gus and Liam; first cousins, Larry Lewis, Dan and Dwayne Hibdon, many beloved cousins; and former husband, John McKelvey Bramblett. She is preceded in death by her husband, Lt. Col. James Rawley Austin; her father, James Kenneth Williamson and mother, Ena Irene Yearwood Williamson.

A private family service will be held in her honor in spring 2021. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Horse Mountain Church of Christ, 1320 Horse Mountain Road, Shelbyville, TN 37160 c/o Mark Pierce, Wounded Warrior Project, support.woundedwarriorproject.org or The National Commodore Club, Vanderbilt University, McGugin Center, 2601 Jess Neely Drive, Nashville, TN 37212 c/o Coach Tim Corbin (baseball).

Feldhaus Memorial Chapel is assisting the family with the arrangements.
