This earthly world lost a beautiful woman, but the angels in heaven are rejoicing as they welcome their newest member of the holy order. Linda Lou Radcliff was granted her angel wings and passed away peacefully surrounded by family on Monday, April 5, 2021 at the age of 70.
Linda brought much joy, love and sassiness into everyone’s lives. Her laughter was contagious, just as her love and dedication to others saw no boundaries. Her companionship and compassion for her dogs, Babe, Major and Sweet Pea made them inseparable on earth and reunited in Heaven. Known for her curly red hair and bright red lipstick-she freely gave hugs and kisses to those she loved. An avid scrapebooker and craftiness, she created homemade gift cards that became a ritual as well as home decorating. She gave us all such courage and hope and reminded us of the preciousness of life. Linda endured and supported the patriotic hardships of her closest family members deployed during the Korean and Vietnam Wars, Desert Storm, Bosnia, Iraq and Afghanistan. Also known as “Queen Bee”, Linda will be lovingly remembered by her husband, Jim Radcliff, Crete, her three sons, Jim Pearl and wife, Erika, Lincoln, Major (R) Jon Pearl and wife MSG (R) Jeanette, Oppenheim, Germany, and MSGT (R) Jason Pearl and wife TSGT (R) Taffina of El Paso, TX; her brother, Rusty Coy and wife Linda, Lincoln; sisters, Cheryl Hansen and husband, Glen, Tacoma, WA, and Mona Luth and husband, Ron, Beaver Crossing; also surviving her are her 10 grandchildren.
Linda was preceded in death by her parents, Leonard and Genevieve (Jackson) Coy.
She was blessed with 16 years of marriage to Jim Radcliff. She loved him dearly and treasured all their special moments together and the long hours he spent caring for her in such a loving way. As she enters the gates of Heaven, the Lord’s embrace overflows her heart with peace and happiness. It was Linda’s wishes to be cremated and no services are to be planned. In lieu of flowers, and to honor Linda, please send cards to Jim in Crete or donations may be directed to Home Instead Foundation https://www.homeinsteadfoundation.org/donate-now/ or to St. Elizabeth Hospital CHI at https://give.chihealth.com/SEFGeneral.
