Linda Alvina Jimenez was born August 10, 1947 to Francisco “Frank” and Mary (Estrada) Vila in Mineral Wells, Texas.  Growing up with 2 SUPERB parents and 10 other siblings, she realized from an early age, what her parents always instilled in her on a daily basis, that FAMILY is the most important thing to hold onto FOREVER so she made that her priority ALWAYS.  Linda lived a simple life and the luxury things were not as important as being surrounded by her beloved family, siblings, sons, and daughters, and especially the grandkids/great grandkids which brought her much joy and celebration.   

Linda was united in marriage to Juan Ramos in 1972 in Mineral Wells, Texas.  Together they had 4 children in Amarillo, Texas.  Later Linda was united in marriage to Angel Jimenez in 1982 in Mineral Wells, Texas.  Together they had 1 son.  Linda worked very hard all her life and was very committed to being the best Mother first and later she worked in manufacturing into retirement.  At about the age of 35, Linda was “Born Again” when she accepted her LORD CHRIST JESUS as her SAVIOR, during a difficult time in her life, and dedicated her new life to live for GOD and his Kingdom in Heaven. KJV: JOHN 14:6 JESUS saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father but by me. She rarely missed church and would share GOD’s GRACE to any ear that would hear.  She enjoyed her new Life as a Child of GOD and accepted her place in the Book of Life forever in HEAVEN.

Linda at times could be a very stubborn, sassy, and even a spitfire, but more often than not, she was soft-spoken, full of love, and always willing to receive a hug.  She was the cornerstone of a vast family and the success of her children can attest to her hard work and dedication to FAMILY.   Even in death her motherhood instincts continued by give all her BLESSINGS to her sons/daughters and anyone else that she felt could use the help.  Linda’s absence, on this earth, will truly be missed as she was one that would give anything she had to provide for others.  Linda truly exhibited JESUS second commandment for all of us: KJV: JOHN 13:34: A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.

Linda is also survived by, what she called “PRECIOUS”, her 13 Grandchildren and 11 Great Grandchildren.  She would also consider any other kids, she took care of, as her own grandkids and she loved them just as equally.   This is a great testimony to her MOTHERHOOD and LOVE for ALL!
