Mrs. Link passed away on Saturday May 4, 2013. Mary Jane Medlin Link was born on Oct. 31, 1936 in Goodlettsville, Tenn. to Ray and Louise Medlin. She spent her school years in Goodlettsville then graduated from the University of Tennessee in 1958 with a Bachelors of Nursing Degree. Mary Jane met Jack Link while they were both serving as Naval Officers on the East Coast. They were married on February 25, 1961. After living in various states while Jack was employed with Anderson Clayton they moved to the South Plains area where she continued her nursing career in Lubbock hospitals for many years. Upon her retirement from nursing, Mary Jane flourished as a Master Gardner and an accomplished flower designer. She volunteered at her church, St. Stephen's Episcopal Church, by serving as secretary (on-call) for many years, and chair of the Flower Guild at which she was affectionately known as The Flower Lady. She also excelled at making Eucharist Bread and established the Bread Guild. Mary Jane, never tiring of serving her church family, served on the Vestry, the Rector Search Committee, and was presently serving on long range development of xeroscaped designs for church property and in any other capacity needing willing and talented hands. Mary Jane was a lady of many talents who loved cooking, entertaining, and especially hosting her numerous friends and family who will miss her greatly. Those left to cherish her memory include her brother-in-law, Thomas Link and his wife Jennie of Austin and her sister-in-law, Glenda Michel of Longmont, Colo. She is also survived by her nieces and nephews, S. Glen Harlan and husband, Kevin Harlan of Lubbock; John Schell of Austin; Brian Michel, his wife, Sandy, and their daughter, Lexie, all of Denver, Colo.; and Lesley Link Collins and her children, Teal and Jettie Collins.
