Linda was born in Boulder, Co to Robert and Darlene Spence. She married William Stark on December 1, 1972 and gave birth to one son, Christopher, who died at birth, and four daughters, Sheila, Lisa, Julie and Karen.
For 42 years, Linda was a beloved servant of the people, working as a CMA and CNA. She excelled at her career, and brought joy and comfort to all the residents that she cared for. She was known for her quick, beautiful smile and ready laugh, which she inherited from her father. Many of those she worked with and for called her Star, because the light of her spirit was so bright and glorious.
Linda loved her family. She loved her husband, her children, her siblings and all their offspring. She was always the first to say a prayer, or reach out with kindness and love. She loved to garden, to read and to cook. She was beyond exceptional at anything she put her mind to. There are no words to express the void she is leaving behind.
Linda left the earth on Christmas Eve, leaving behind a broken-hearted husband, four grieving daughters, her brother and sisters, Stephen, Lorene, Sharon, and Pamela, all her grandchildren and other family; however, they all know that she got to spend Christmas day with her parents, her brother, Bobbi, her son, Christopher, and her three grandsons, Christopher, Mason and Cody. She has spent many years mourning each and every person she loved and lost, so there is joy to be found in that beautiful reunion.
A special thanks to all those at the Fraternal Brothers of Eagles Club. William and Linda have been members for over 30 years and love you all.
Thank you to all the First Responders and Club members who worked for so long to try and save her life. The call home was just to loud.
Now is your time of grief, but I will see you again and you will rejoice, and no one will take away your joy.
Until we see you again. We love you.- William, Sheila, Lisa, Julie and Karen
