Linda Sue Felker, age 67, Joplin, Mo., passed away at 11:52 a.m. Monday, October 2, 2017, at her home.
Linda was born August 28, 1950, in Joplin, to the late Jerry Brock and Betty Gilliam Brock and was a lifetime Joplin resident.
She owned and operated 66 Truck and Foreign Salvage, in Joplin, for over 30 years. Linda was a free spirit and enjoyed shopping, anything with bling, crafts, swimming, amusement parks, visiting casinos, watching reality television shows, reading Stephen King novels and listening to Willie and Elvis.
Her first priority was family. She spent countless hours supporting her husband, sons and grandsons racing careers. Linda loved spending time with all of her grandchildren and always looked forward to family gatherings. Christmas was a special time at the Felker house. She expected lists from everyone and made sure that everyone was spoiled rotten. She will be missed by all who knew her.
She married Raymond 'John' Felker on June 4, 1966, in Duenweg. He preceded her in death on August 17, 2005.
Linda was also preceded in death by a brother, Tom Brock.
Survivors include two sons, Danny Felker and his wife, Sandra, Carl Junction, Denny Felker and his fiancé, Tina Nelson, Joplin; a brother, Carl Brock and his wife, Kay, Broken Arrow, Okla.; sister-in-law, Sharon Brock, Joplin; grandchildren, Ashlea Belcher and husband, Shaun, Hailey, Andrew, Denny Jr., Erin; seven great-grandchildren; and her fur baby, Cootie.
Graveside services are planned for Thursday at 2 p.m. at Osborne Memorial Cemetery. Bill Hobson will officiate. The family will receive friends immediately following the services at Linda's home, 1386 South Black Cat Road, Joplin.
The family would like to give special thanks to Jaye and staff at Hospice Compassus.
In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to Hospice Compassus, in care of Parker Mortuary.
Arrangements are under the direction of Parker Mortuary.
