Linda will be forever remembered by her daughter, Kimi Hensley, and son-In-law, Adam; daughter Kassie Busby and son-in-law, Jordan; grandchildren Callie Hensley, Collin Hensley, Evan Busby and Luke Busby; sisters Wanda Graves, Norma Way and brother-In-law, Don, Maudie Wilhelmsen, Loretta Tiner and brother-in-law Perry, Charlotte Dooley, Tina Earl and brother-in-law, Gary; brother, Paul Criner and Theresa. Linda will also be forever remembered by her numerous nieces, nephews, extended family and dear friends.
Linda, a beautiful soul inside and out, had a genuine love of life and of God. She found the silver lining in every circumstance. She trusted that God would always work things together for good. She shared her love of the Lord with others and prayed for everyone she knew.
Linda adored her family. She doted on her kids, often reminding them how proud she was to be their Mama. She spent most of her life caring for those she loved the very most, including her pride and joy, her grandchildren. Being Nana made her heart smile more than anything else. She would say, "Here's an AngelPut it in your pocket," a reminder that even if she couldn't be there, she was always in their hearts, and they were always on her mind.
Meeting Linda for the first time meant receiving a warm hug, silly joke and unconditional love. Linda was a friend to all. She was outgoing, spunky and kind, and could make you laugh no matter what. She didn't go a day without laughing herself. Linda was known for all of these things and so much more. Heaven gained a special spirit. Linda was a wonderful woman that was loved, is missed and will always be cherished.
A memorial service will be held on Tuesday, March 5, 2019, at 11 a.m., at Westside Family Fellowship, 2150 Palm Avenue, Wasco. Reception Immediately following.
John 14:27: "I am leaving you with a gift-peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So do not be troubled or afraid."
