Graves, Linda D.


Linda Doyline Graves, age 64 of Dallas, Texas went home to be with the Lord on March 7, 2012.
She went peacefully while residing at Heritage Gardens Nursing Facility in Carrollton, Texas from complications of infection.

Linda was born on May, 26, 1947 in Dallas, Texas to Doyle William Graves and Ola Wanda Herring Graves.

She is survived by her daughter and son-in-law, Kim and Sean Alipour; her three grand children, Coral (5), Jewel (4), and Ariel (4), and her brother William Graves.

Linda worked for Fidelity investments as a young woman, but chose to become a stay at home mom when Kim was born in 1980. She was a dedicated wife and mother, putting others before her own needs during her life. In 1996 she became a member and employee of Urban Park Baptist Church in Dallas. She had been a member there ever since, and continued her work as Secretary thru 2010 when she had her first stroke in December of that year.
She resided in Dallas and Pleasant Grove area for most of her life, until 2005 when she moved to Carrollton to be closer to her family. She enjoyed working for the Lord in Urban Park Baptist Church, singing in the choir, and helping other people in any way that she could. She spent her free time with her daughter, Kim and her grandchildren, often shopping or enjoying family time with them at their home. Lighthearted and funny, Linda was a pure joy to be around, and will be deeply missed.

Her Home Going Celebration will be held on Saturday March 10th at ten o

Kim, this is for you and William. I haven’t seen your mom since we were in high school, we were in elementary, jr. and high school together.your mom used to come over to my home on Hillcrest rd. we were good friends,she was fun to be with and so kind, an attribute that is very hard to come by in jr high and high school. Linda stood up for what she believed in. We are all very saddened by her passing, my friend annette weaver (krell married name),Anne Todd (Barfield married name)and myself, wish to express our sorrow and let you know what an extrodinary person your mom was. Linda was one of the kindest, light hearted and most genteel persons we have ever had the privelige of knowing. when annette told me today that she had died, it just broke my heart. Even though I never saw her after high school, Linda will always be remembered in my home as a truly kind and sweet, sweetheart. We Are So Sorry At Your Loss And Also Mourn Her Passing. God Bless Linda,God Bless Us All. With Our Deepest Sympathy, Gracia Logue, Annette Weaver Krell, Anne Todd Barfield.

Linda and I were friends and dated occasionally between 2004 and 2008. She was a blessing and a real friend who will be missed.
