Linda Cox, 65, of Turlock, passed away at home after an extended illness. Linda was the youngest of seven children born to Robert Theodore and Martha Lenora Cox. Linda was born in Emanuel Hospital in Turlock, grew up in rural Turlock, and attended Continuum College in Turlock. Linda had a sweet innocence about her. She loved everybody, from babies to adults. Linda loved to dance and sing along with country music. Some of her favorite singers were Elvis and Willie Nelson (she called “whiskers”.) She attended Turlock’s Full Gospel Tabernacle and Calvary First Assembly of God Church in Hilmar. She rejoiced when her friends moved so that she could help them make the move into their new homes. She enjoyed simple pleasures like celebrating Christmas, her birthday, going out to eat, and drinking diet Pepsi.

Linda was preceded in death by her parents and five siblings: Robert Cox, Lena Mae Silva-Pacheco, Russell Cox, Rosalie Ortega, and Arthur LeRoy Cox. She is survived by her sister Shirley Cox, niece and caregivers “Shelly Baby” and “Honey”, and numerous other nieces and nephews.
