Linda D. Rodriguez was born April 3, 1947 and passed on January 27, 2019. She was survived by 3 amazing but very difficult daughters; Sherri Hunt of Maui, Hawaii, Stacey Leonard of Oklahoma City, and Amber Rodriguez of New York City. Linda was the proud & sometime tortured Lola of Nicole, Allie, April, Austin, & Alohalani. She was the Lola and great-grandmother of 6 with one more on the way. None of her family went hungry in her presence.
Ms. Rodriguez devoted her time to philanthropic work at St. James Catholic Church for 13 years. She also worked in fundraising for Oklahoma City Community Foundation. Prior to her work as a development director, she worked at Walker Law Firm where she met lifelong friends. In later life she continued to volunteer for the church and at a food pantry.
Linda spent her free time crafting, gardening, cooking, cake decorating, and hosting events. She was an overachiever when it came to her hobbies and a force to be reckoned with. She was ready to greet you with a smile and a joke (often at her own expense). Her talent, humor and grace will be missed by all.
Ms. Rodriguez’ greatest pleasures in life were her family and friends. If she was your friend, you would be a friend for life and there is nothing she wouldn’t do for you. If you weren’t then watch out! A consummate gift giver, Linda would go out of her way to bake your favorite dish, decorate a cake, or find an off-color gift to make you laugh. She was a tried and true friend and touched many people’s lives.
Her greatest joy, and often greatest headache, was her family. Through ups and down she was her family’s biggest champion and her love knew no bounds. Whether it was staying up late be able to talk to Sherri in Hawaii or answering a dozen phone calls from Stacey about how to make a dish, or always answering the phone at 2 AM because Amber just had to tell her something, she was always there. The same is true for her grandchildren who she loved to spoil to a fault and would forever be “her babies.”
In life Linda Rodriguez was someone you never met the likes of and in death she is someone who will never be forgotten.
Her family thanks you for being here to celebrate her life.
