LINDA DARLENE GRIMES GIDEON, 60, of Maljamar,

in Prairie Haven Memorial Park at Hobbs, NM.
Linda started life, May 10th, 1952, born the
newest daughter of Clyde & Juanita Grimes.
After graduation at Ranger High School in
1970 she began wedded bliss, with William

1971. Linda & Bill shared their years in
Ranger, TX, Graham, TX and Hobbs before
settling down in Maljamar, where she opened
her own cafe, Linda's Grill. Because of Linda's
zest for life, and her abundance of love,
relationships flowered from customer to friend
daily. Her café was a focal point, in her
daily life, and she loved her café and each
and every person that came through the door.

her mother & father, Juanita Lee Garrett &
Clyde H. Grimes; her grandparents, Lee Emmett
& Bernice Earl Garrett and a host of relatives
