Obituary for Linda L. Barrett

Linda Barrett passed away at her home in Crescent City on October 3, 2011 after a long fight with cancer. She was 63, but eternally young at heart. Her loss is a soul crushing pain to her husband. Linda was born January 6, 1948 in Burbank, Calif. To Cecil and Helen (Quackenbush) Tolbert. She grew up in Burbank with special friends like, Jan Curtis. Linda spent most of her working life as a waitress in restaurants and casinos. She met Jim Barrett in Reno, Nevada in 1984; the two were officially married on November 11, 1989 in Virginia City, Nevada. They lived in Reno until moving to Crescent City in 1995. Linda’s passion was her garden. She entered her flowers in the Del Norte County Fair every year for the last 16 years and won the Cut Flower Division 12 times, Grand Champion 3 times, and Best of Show this year for her meadow rue. Linda was especially thankful for the friendship of Morgana and Gennie who run and assist the Del Norte County Fair Floral Department. Linda also cherished her long time poker club friends, Gisela, Addie, Norma and Mona. She will miss these games possible more than anything.
