Linda Carol Johnson, 71, of DeBerry, Texas, passed away on Monday, September 24, 2018. She was born on October 23, 1946 to parents, Carl Johnston and Mable Marie Garber Johnston. Linda was determined, headstrong, and voiced her opinions. Never did you have to wonder how she felt because she wasn’t shy about letting you know if she thought you were doing wrong. If you ever had a time where you needed a helping hand or just needed someone to have your back, Linda was there for you. No matter if you were just an acquaintance or a friend, to her you were put in a circle called “family”. She enjoyed riding horses, farming, playing bingo and taking trips to the casino. She loved her family and taking care of kids. Linda will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved her.
