Linda Manson, 63, passed away on Thursday, December 5, 2013, at her home in Rancho Bernardo. Linda had lived in Rancho Bernardo since 1986. |
She was born on December 14, 1949, in Los Angeles and grew up in Whittier, CA, with her parents, Kenney and Carleen, and her brother, Bob. Linda graduated from Whittier High School in 1968 and from Cal State University Long Beach in 1973 majoring in Home Economics.
Linda met her husband, Gary Manson, in college. They were married in 1973 and moved to Escondido. Linda has three children, Terry, Jeff and Julie, and spent most of her married years as a stay-at–home mom caring for them. All three are now married. Linda was a wonderful and loving grandmother to her eight grandchildren.
Gary retired in 2003 and the couple has spent their retirement years traveling to destinations worldwide. Linda and Gary celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary with their family in June. Linda was so well liked by everyone that a longtime neighbor once remarked that he never heard anyone say anything negative about her. Linda will be remembered as a very loving wife and mother who put the happiness of her family as her top priority in life.
Goodbye Linda. You've been a wonderful wife, sister, mother, grandmother and friend! We will all miss you very much!
A private memorial service for family has been arranged.
In lieu of sending flowers, Linda would appreciate a donation to her favorite charity, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, www.stjude.org.
Arrangements are by Alhiser-Comer Mortuary.
