Linda Watters

We lost our beautiful mother on Friday, August 6, 2021. Linda Jean Watters passed away at home in Woodland Hills with her family nearby and her beloved dog Gracie by her side.

Linda was born January 1, 1948 to Russell and Dorothy Childress, the oldest of three daughters. Because her parents were both in the Navy, she got to experience life in many different places, including London, and numerous states in the US. Her family eventually settled in Norman, Oklahoma. She was regarded as one of the prettiest girls in her high school. Apparently many people were surprised when she started dating the smartest nerd in the high school.

Linda married David Watters April 1, 1969. She graduated with a bachelors degree from the University of Oklahoma shortly after. She had very happy memories of the few years she taught 4th grade in Norman, "retiring" to become a full time mom in 1974. Linda and David moved to Vacaville, California from Oklahoma. They later settled in Woodland Hills, Utah in June of 1981.

They raised their four children in Woodland Hills, Jacob (Kathryn) Watters, Andrea (Justin) Lowry, Isaac (Kenzie) Watters, and Molly Cano.

She will be remembered as an involved mother, amazing cook, avid reader, petite fashionista, generous hostess, world traveler, scuba diver, giver of useful advice, and wonderful friend. She worked hard to provide for anyone in need and was eager to help whenever needed.

Linda is survived by her children and their spouses; (almost) six grandsons, Tyler, Ryan, Easton, Evan, Fox, and Forest; one great granddaughter Skylar; and her dog Gracie. She is preceded in death, by only 10 weeks, by her husband David.

A private memorial will be held at a time not yet determined.
