Salado, L pic 2 webSept 1951 – June 2014

Linda Christine Arguelles Salado, 62, of Livingston, CA passed away on Sunday, June 22, 2014 in the home of her daughter in Turlock, CA after a hard-fought and courageous battle with cancer dating back to February 2012. She passed peacefully, surrounded by her loved ones at her side. Linda was born on September 8, 1951 in Wichita Falls, TX, the only daughter and middle child of 5 children born to Gilbert and Leonora Arguelles.

Linda traveled the world as the child of an E-9 Air-force Chief Master Sargent before finding a home in Merced, CA where she graduated from Merced High in 1969. In 1977, she married Samuel R. Salado, (who survives her), and settled down in Livingston, CA where she lived until her death in 2014. They had two children, by whom she is survived: Leonora & Sam Salado. She also welcomed and raised, as her own, Sam’s children, Denise and Anthony Salado.

Family, good food, cooking, camping, bowling, amusement parks, family gatherings, making holidays memorable and special, and her work with children with special needs in her later years all gave her much joy. Patience, a knack for teaching no matter the level of the student, and a keen sense for how each individual learned, made her such an amazing teacher to anyone who cared to learn from her. Artistic throughout life, she owned several businesses wherein she displayed her talents. A green thumb and the outdoors gave her much pleasure. Linda’s bubbly personality, sense of humor, and kind heart made her memorable to those who knew her.

A person who touched many lives with just a smile or laugh, she will be dearly missed in this world, but we know that heaven gained an angel.
Linda is survived by her parents, Gilbert & Leonora Arguelles; brothers, Gilbert James, Marcus, John, and Joseph; children, Leonora, Sam, Denise, and Anthony; grandchildren, Samuel, Timothy, and Luke, as well as a number of nieces and nephews, family members, and close friends.

There will be a viewing for Linda at Allen Mortuary located at 247 N Broadway, Turlock, CA 95380 on Sunday, June 29 from 9:00a-12:00p followed by a memorial service at 1:00pm. Reception to follow next door at the Allen Event Center.
