Linda Fay Herrick, age 76, of Jasper, passed away at 7:25 a.m. on Saturday, September 11, 2021, in Scenic Hills at the Monastery in Ferdinand, Indiana.
Linda was born in Mitchellville, Tenn., on February 27, 1945, to the late Hubert and Gladys (Lovelady) Dobbs.
Linda grew up in Portland, Tenn., before her family moved to Louisville, Kentucky, and eventually to Indianapolis when she was a young girl.
Linda attended Emmerich Manuel High School.
She was a leasing agent for several years, leasing apartments and condominiums.
She attended Redemption Christian Church in Jasper.
Linda was a “people person” who rarely met a stranger. She enjoyed meeting and talking with new people and would often remember and share details about them and their loved ones for years to come. Linda loved children and the joy they bring to life. She was always concerned if someone was hungry and wanted to feed them. Although Linda could be spunky at times, she genuinely loved and cared about people. Her family and God were of the utmost importance to her.
Linda enjoyed talking to and spending time with her friends and family; listening to country music, reading, doing word searches, and watching HGTV or animated movies. She loved to be on the go and was always up for a new adventure. She would often be out and about early in the morning to visit friends or leave a note on a loved one’s car.
She is survived by her daughter, Angela (Doug) Goeppner of Huntingburg; son, Michael (Amy) Herrick II of La Canada, Calif. and their three children, Michael III, Matthew and Rachel; two sisters, Brenda Roberson of Indianapolis and Charlotte Rich of Greenfield as well several nieces and nephews.
Preceding her in death are, three brothers, Don (Florine) of Houston, Texas, Jimmy (Jeannie) of Titusville, Fla., and Obie (Lettie) Dobbs of Indianapolis.
