Linda Diann Barnes
April 7th, 1947 - May 6th, 2018
Linda Diann Barnes was born on April 7th, 1947, in Merced, CA, to Virgil and Pauline Patrick. Linda attended Le Grand High School, class of 1965, and upon graduation she attended Merced College receiving an AA. Over the years Linda worked at IBM, University of The Pacific, and San Joaquin Delta College.
Linda loved spending time with her family--especially spoiling those grandchildren! Linda was also was an avid cat lover. Other interests Linda was fond of include: Baseball (go Dodgers!), Star Trek/good Science Fiction, Harry Potter, The Beatles, vocal crooners and music you can tap your toes to, and she created beautiful jewelry.
Always loving and extremely thoughtful, Linda always knew exactly what made her loved ones smile. All who came into contact with Linda, even if only for a brief time, were amazed at her kindness and sweet spirit! Above all, Linda's life was dedicated to living for her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ! She meekly gave her heart to Jesus as a child after a classmate invited her to church. As an adult in the early 1980s, she wholeheartedly rededicated her life to serving Christ and holy living! This would always be the most important thing that she wanted to pass on to her children, grandchildren, and anyone who knew her! Even unto her last breath, she served Him gracefully.
Linda is survived by her husband, David Michael Barnes, sons; Christopher Todd Barnes and Timothy Allen Barnes, daughter-in-law; Susan Barnes, grandchildren; Anthony, Emily, Madison, Matthew, Trenton, Jaccob and Christopher.
