So sadden to hear about Linda’s passing. We were just talking it up at our monthly Probation Retiree luncheon for Black History Month in February talking about the old Juvenile Hall and how we use to get together for different events and have a great time. My condolences to the Jones family. May our Lord bless and comfort you during this difficult time.

I remember when Linda visited my husband Philip her baby brother, she was so glad to spend time with him. They loved each other very much. May God bless both their spirits. Love Bernice Tolbert Jones Sister-in-law ❤️

My sister Lina Faye enjoyed TV especially she loved old westerns. She would spend hours watching Gun Smoke,, Bonanza, Maverick, Rifleman, and Rawhide to name a few. She would watch their reruns over and over again. I think she even went to visit the real Ponderosa Ranch (Bonanza) in Nevada in real life.

She loved watching Court TV including Divorce Court, Judge Mablean, Paternity Court, Judge Mathis. Couples Court and Family Court. She always had her own sense of justice and pride in making decisions as to how the cases should be decided.

Linda started watching Soap opera program as a child with our Mother Minnie Mae McCree Jones Francis over 50 years ago and faithfully watched until she died. Among her favorites were the Guiding Light, All My Children, Love of Life , As the World Turns, General Hospital , Days of our lives, One a life to Live to name a few. She enjoyed these dramas and was all in the characters lives as if they were real!!!

These last few months Linda was obsessed with watching the news coverage on immigration, President Trump, and the Corona Virus. She often said she wish Donald a Trump would adopt her not because of his politics but because of his money. We would watch TV together over the phone just about everyday often disagreeing.

I miss those phone calls so much. Little Sister. These last few days I find myself picking up my cell phone to call you and then I realize you won’t answer. Now I just talk to you sometimes out loud, sometimes in my head and most times with tears.

Hey, do you guys remember this. Linda was taking us all over to our sister’s house. We were almost at her front door when a dog started charging toward us. We all we about to run except for Linda. The dog ran toward Linda and when he got close enough, she balled up her fist and popped him right in the nose. The dog’s eyes got big, like he was shocked. Then the dog ran away yelping. That dog didn’t know what he was going up against.

GOD BLESS YOU

From the family, we want to thank everyone who came and knew Linda. We plan on having a celebration on a later date, please check back for updates.

We lost the center piece of our family, a mentor, a loving figure and our rock. Although she may be with our Father God we miss her very dearly. Linda touched so many people with her wit, wealth of knowledge and experiences. She will be remembered fondly and loved deeply. We can rest knowing that her passing was peaceful and without suffering.

Although God picked his flower, our garden will never be the same. The family wishes all love, health and blessings. We will be together again in the presence of our Father God who created us all. We are proud to have had you in our lives for all those years, your beautiful soul is missed dearly....

I have so many memories of my Little sister . Many in the family called her “Fast Faye”. A uncle called her “Madam Queen”. She called herself a “Traveling Christian “. Some considered her a “Know it all”. Linda always gave you her opinion or advice even if you didn’t want it. She had a great memory and often went down memory lane with stories of the Army Street Project , Hunters Point Project Sunnyvale Project, Double Rock, Dog Patch , Sunnyvale Project , Fillmore Street (SanFrancisco) , 80th Ave . Bret Harte school (Oakland) and the people we grew up with. I wish now I would had recorded some of those memories. We grew up in the Church of Christ worshipping at Figueroa (L.A.), Revere Street, Columbia Heights, Downtown /Ellis Street , Brotherhood Way (San Francisco) 12th and Linden , and 7811 E. 14th Street (Oakland) to name a few. Linda made friends with everyone wherever she went and also worshiped with the First Baptist Church of Russel City (Hayward) which was in her neighborhood. She was truly a traveling Christian. She was one of the most helpful individual to just about everyone she came in contact with. Now she is looking down on her family and her friends. Linda you are will be forever missed.

I love you ❤️ I don’t remember saying that to you ever but I think you knew that.

Forever missing you. One of your big sister
