SAN FRANCISCO - Linda Barker passed away peacefully in San Francisco on October 27, 2012, after a courageous battle with cancer.

She was born on November 20, 1941 in Berkeley, to Joe and Constance Mitchell (Rolfe). The family moved to Modesto shortly after. Linda graduated from Downey High School in 1959. She attended Modesto Junior College and received her AA degree in 1961. She married Michael Barker and they moved to the Monterey Peninsula. Linda moved to San Francisco in 2000. There she enjoyed visiting museums, trying new restaurants and volunteering at the SPCA of San Francisco.

Linda was a warm, outgoing, fun-loving person who had the ability to make anyone feel at home the minute they met her. She was a truly beautiful person inside and out. She was very artistic and especially loved painting. She was a wonderful mother to her daughters, Lisa and Kristin, always encouraging them to achieve their dreams.

Linda was preceded in death by her parents, Constance Rolfe, Joseph Mitchell and Bob Rolfe. Linda is survived by her daughters, Lisa Dunn of San Francisco and Kristin Vernon (Cameron) of Carmel; her granddaughter, Madison Vernon; her sisters, Nancy Scheer and Signe Drury and her companion, Stephen Clark, whom she loved with all her heart.

A private family gathering to honor her memory will be held. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests a donation to the donor's favorite charity.
