Linda passed away January 6, 2020. She was born July 14, 1941 in Lubbock to Everett and Thelma Hicks. Linda was preceded in death by her parents and one brother, John Everett Hicks. She attended Lubbock schools all the way through high school, graduating from Monterey High in 1959. She then attended Baylor University in Waco, Texas and graduated in 1963. Subsequently, she taught second and then first grade in Seminole, Ralls, and Lubbock for eleven years.

Linda accepted Jesus as her Savior at nine years of age at Plains Baptist Assembly Church Camp. Jesus changed her life completely, and she lived to serve Him. She taught children at First Baptist Church in Sunday School in Lubbock for many years. Her passions included visiting shut-ins in homes and nursing homes, a strawberry bread ministry to all in need, traveling, and sending cards to friends. Her philosophy of life was JOY - Jesus first, others second, yourself third - She loved her Lord and people.

She also enjoyed membership in an honorary teacher group, Delta Kappa Gamma, and the Lubbock Women's Christian Connection for many, many years.

Linda is survived by Kenneth Wigner, her husband of 46 years, sons Joseph and Daniel, Daniel's wife Leann Wigner, and her one and only grandson Clark Wigner.
