Linda Maddox peacefully entered through Heaven’s gates on the evening of July 23, 2019, at the age of 64.
She was born to George and Hazel Clark in Weaverville, Calif., on Oct. 10, 1954. She lived, loved and worked in Weaverville her entire life.
Linda graduated from Trinity High School in 1972 and married her high school sweetheart, Fred Maddox, on July 13, 1973. They spent 46 wonderful years together raising four children — Victor Maddox, Jamie Martinez, Nathan Maddox and Marjie Watkins.
Linda worked, loved and helped many in this community that she loved so much.
A few of her many passions were cooking, sewing, raising show rabbits, volunteering and participating in the Trinity County Fair as 4-H leader, helper, judge and buyer. She was a certified Master Gardener and her yard shows it. She volunteered at the Young Family Ranch and its many activities. One of Linda’s greatest loves was children. She owned, managed and worked in a large day care at her Weaverville home. You could always find Linda on the floor playing and teaching the children.
Linda was preceded in death by both parents, George and Hazel Clark of California; older sister JoAnne Logan of Oklahoma; and an older brother, Lloyd Clark of Oregon.
She leaves behind husband Fred Maddox of California; children Victor Maddox of Alaska, Jamie Martinez of Texas, Nathan Maddox of Alaska, and Marjie Watkins of California; sister Shirley Millard of California, brothers George Clark of California and Raymond Clark of Iowa; sisters Roberta Jones of Arizona and Martha (Marcy) Dorris of Oregon; 14 grandchildren, two great-grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews.
Linda was such a loving, kind and thoughtful mother, sister, mema, aunt and friend, what a blessing she was to so many. She leaves a hole in many hearts and will be terribly missed. In lieu of cards or flowers the family would appreciate and prefer donations be made to the Trinity Alps 4-H club, P.O. Box 881, c/o Shannon Taylor, Weaverville, CA 96093.
A celebration of life will be held at a later date.
