Linda Ruth Harvey of Savoy passed away peacefully on Saturday, March 6, 2021 in Denison. She was born June 26, 1945 to James Edward Blakey and Daisy “Criger” Blakey in Sherman, Texas.
Linda married Roger Harvey on February 25, 1966 in Savoy in the home of her parents. They loved and laughed and worked together for 55 years. They were blessed with two boys, Jeff and Scott.
She was a fiery, self-determined red headed beauty. Even though she had her own thoughts and ways, but she could also be very understanding and loving. Linda loved her husband, her boys and their wives. She was an excellent cook, especially known for her cakes, apricot cake, red velvet, lemon or any kind of cake. Her chocolate pies were second to none. Her fried chicken was absolutely delicious.
Linda worked for many years at Mullican Care Center as a Nurse Assistant and she excelled in personal care to her patients. She was a true friend who valued her friendships. Linda will be grievously missed.
