Linda was such a special wife, friend, mother, grandma and great-grandma to all that were so blessed to know her. Her thoughtful acts of kindness, generosity and love have left a multitude of people that deeply love and miss her.
Linda S. Chavez was born in Davenport on Aug. 8, 1948, to Jose and Elma Chavez. She attended school at Our Lady of Lourdes in Davenport. She was married to her soul mate, Pastor Donald K. Grooms, on Aug. 14, 1971, in Davenport. He survives. She was a devoted wife to Donald for 40 years.
Family was very important to Linda. She gave countless hugs, kisses and "I Love Yous" every day, all day. She was a member of Rock Solid Truth and a leader of a Woman's Fellowship for Abundant Life Church of God. She loved the Lord and now has the most cherished reward for which any Christian can hope, for now Linda is in heaven with God.
She enjoyed reading, sitting outside, the river, her pets and her many lifelong friends. She loved the time spent with her family, especially her youngest, Mia, her grandbabies and her great-grandbaby.
Those left to honor her memory include her husband, Donald; her daughters, Dondra Lueth, Silvis, Donai Scarff, Coal Valley, and Mia McKenna Grooms, Silvis; sisters, Patricia Odom, Walcott, and Rita (Dale) Hesser, Las Vegas, Nev.; a brother, Joe Chavez, Huntington Beach, Calif.; grandchildren, Brittany Lueth, Chelsey Grooms, Chuck Lueth IV, Adam Lueth, Austin Scarff and Dakota Grooms; great-grandchild, Yoni Candela; and several nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her parents and a sister, Mary Barnhardt.
