November 13, 1943 - October 14, 2019
Linda Marguerite Pierce (Rhodes), 75, of Waddell, Arizona, passed away on October 14, 2019 after a long battle with lung cancer and early onset Alzheimer's and Dementia. She was a fighter, a strong woman who always tried her best to help those around her. I can't begin to tell you how many people she took in and helped, even though financially, she was struggling herself. Linda was born on November 13, 1943 in Hoopeston, IL to her loving parents, William and Mary Rhodes. Linda worked full time as a maid and housekeeper. Growing up, I remember Christmases were the best. She was a kind, generous person. I feel grateful to have had her as my mother. I will sure miss her, but I'm very glad she's no longer in any pain or distress. This was a hard journey but I am glad that I was able to keep her with me where I could help her. Linda had many hobbies and interests such as gambling, puzzles, watching Lifetime and Hallmark movies, spending time with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Linda is survived by her brother Dusty Rhodes, her sister Donna Arnold, her daughter Brenda Pierce, her grandchildren Kassie and Kyle Thompson, Jessica Serna and Steve Parker, James and Kaitlin Serna, and her great-grandsons Aidan and Jacob. She is predeceased by her father William Rhodes, her mother Mary Rhodes (Hasak), her sisters Marcella Gholson, Barbara Morgan and Patricia Parker. A graveside service is scheduled for October 26, 2019 at 12:30 pm at West Resthaven Cemetery, William Aguilar will be officiating. I'd like to thank all of you that have been a great support system for me. I am so fortunate to have such amazing family and friends. I met some wonderful people through Faith Hospice. They've got some truly amazing people that really care about their patients. So thank you, Crystal Rivera and Debbie Swan, and a special thank you to an important family member of ours, Pamela Bratzel. Flowers and donations can be sent to West Resthaven Cemetery at 6450 W. Northern Ave Glendale, AZ 85301.
