Linda Genell Barrett, 75, passed away Dec. 2, 2018 after an extended illness.
She was born May 29, 1943 to Jesse and Virgie Butler in Searcy, Ark. In 1960, Linda met the love of her life while living in San Diego, Calif. They married the same year and between them they had six children.
Linda was never one to shy away from hard work. She had many jobs over the years, but most often it was the role of caretaker for the elderly. She thoroughly enjoyed time with her children and in her down time was a voracious reader.
Survivors includer her husband of 58 years, Thomas Barrett Sr.; sisters, Phyllis Chambers, Theida Sartain and Faye (Fred) McCulley; daughters, Terrie (Ron) Young, Tonya (Kelly) Little, Kim Murrah and Paula (Kevin) Scheib; and son, Paul Barrett.
Linda was preceded in death by her parents, Jesse and Virgie Butler; brother, Harold Butler; and son Thomas Barrett Jr.
Precht-Harrison-Nearents Chapel and Okanogan County Crematory are in care of arrangements. At Linda’s request no service is planned.
