Linda Jane Sherrill died Wednesday the 6th of December at Deaconess Health Care Center. She was the loving daughter of Oscar Sterling Sherrill (deceased) and Betty Jane Oliger (deceased). Born in 1959 and a life long resident of Oklahoma, Linda graduated from Putnam City High School in 1978.
Linda enjoyed a twenty three year career with Marriott Food Services until her retirement in 2000.
Although Linda was born with Downs Syndrome, she had a full and blessed life. She loved photography, music, special Olympics, sports of all kinds and family. Those of us who had the pleasure of knowing Linda are better human beings for the experience, she taught us much.
She is survived by her four brothers (David, Carl, Mike and Russell) and three sisters (Laura Bruner, Nita Brooks and Rita Sherrill) as well as a multitude of extended family. She was preceded in death by brother John Otis Sherrill.
Services will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, December 8, 2012 at Chapel Hill Funeral Home. Linda will be laid to rest at Chapel Hill Memorial Gardens.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to Special Olympics or the Alzheimer's Association.
