Linda Ann Easterling Aycock died unexpectedly on May 28, 2014. She was born January 29, 1947 in Port Arthur, Texas to Mary and L. E. Easterling. Linda was a faithful follower of Jesus and her faith was revealed in all aspects of her life, as a loving wife, mother, daughter, sister, grandmother and friend. Her life touched many, and her passing leaves all that knew her with a tremendous sense of loss and the exceptional blessing of having been touched by her way of showing love for us all. Linda was preceded in death by her father, L.E. Easterling. Linda graduated from Jefferson High School in Port Arthur and attended Lamar University and the University of Texas where she obtain her degree in Education. She was a dedicated and enthusiastic teacher and advocate for children. She was recognized by awards for her teaching excellence during her 21 years of teaching elementary school, much of which was dedicated to teaching children with special challenges. She had a marvelous talent for winning the affection of her students and was happiest when she was helping children progress beyond expectations. While at the University she met and married her husband, James J. Aycock. Linda and Jim shared a journey of 46 years that included stops in California and El Paso before moving to San Antonio in 1981. In San Antonio she taught at Thousand Oaks Elementary and Redland Oaks Elementary until her retirement in 1995. Linda was an energetic and tireless worker and volunteer in civic, professional and church organizations. Her love for teaching and children led her to be constantly active in church activities for children as a Sunday school teacher, vacation bible school volunteer and other church children's activities. She helped Alamo Heights UMC establish an acolyte program which continues for services today. She was a member of the Junior League of El Paso, El Paso Junior Women's Club and a sustaining member of the Junior League of San Antonio. Linda was a true patriot who loved her country with a passion that has led her to spend much of her time for the past few years working for her vision for our country. Each July 4th she could be seen in the company of her grandchildren proudly helping to carry a gigantic American flag in the parade in New Braunfels. She was currently serving as an officer in the New Braunfels Republican Women's Club and was scheduled to be recognized at the state convention for her contributions to the club. Linda was also that rare woman that loved sports, and love going to baseball and football games with Jim, especially her Texas Longhorns. The love which Linda had for children was magnified many times over by her love for her seven grandchildren. Her annual "Camp Grammy" which involved having each of the grandchildren come alone to spend a week with just her and their grandfather at their house at Lake McQueeney was the highlight of her year. Linda is survived by her husband, James Aycock, her mother Mary Easterling of Dallas, her children, James Aycock, Jr. and his wife Amy of Atlanta, Amy Hougen and her husband Brian of Kingwood, and Matthew Aycock of Dallas; seven grandchildren, Kendall Hougen, Allison Aycock, Kate Aycock, Lily Aycock and James Aycock, III, Christian Hougen and Reed Hougen; she is also survived by her brothers Christopher Easterling and wife Julianna, and Edward Easterling and wife Pat; brother in law Howard Aycock and wife Sandi; nephews Luke Easterling, Garrett Easterling and nieces Caroline Easterling, Annette Thomas, Jamie Johnson and Sandy Urbanczyk.
