Linda Joyce (Moon) Hassler, 76, died peacefully in her sleep on Tuesday, July 30, 2019 in Nashville from complications related to Alzheimer’s Disease.
Mrs. Hassler was born on Nov. 27, 1942 in Chattanooga to William Thomas “Bill” Moon and Pauline “Polly” Vandergriff Moon. Linda graduated in 1965 from the School of Nursing at Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta and worked for various companies and hospitals in Georgia and Tennessee in her early years. She was best known as a caring nurse to her cardiac patients for over two decades at St. Thomas West Hospital in Nashville.
She loved sewing, reading, gardening, cooking the beach, and spending time with loved ones. Most of all, she loved to nurture and give selflessly to her husband, sons and grandchildren. She was fondly known as “Moonbeam,” as her face would always light up whenever she was with her family and friends. Her sweet smile and her warm hugs will be greatly missed.
Linda is lovingly remembered by her husband of 51 years, Jerry Hassler; sons, Brian (Amie), Alan (Yasmin) and Michael (Alexis); six beautiful grandchildren, Harrison, Anson, Conlan, Emi Kate, Bresden and Haven; and siblings, Tommy Moon (Beverly) and Vivian Hudson (Jimmy).
