September 29, 1941 - January 28, 2020
Linda Lou Goodney, 78, of Traverse City, passed away January 28, 2020. She was the daughter of the late Milton and Ethel (Oswald) Presler, born in Alma, MI on September 29, 1941. Linda had many passions in her life. Her love for her Lord, her love for her family, and especially in the later years her love for her great grand-daughter. She had a keen eye for style, and enjoyed shopping and spoiling her family with gifts. Linda lived in the Traverse City area for 45 years. Up until its closing, Linda was a bookkeeper for the Traverse City State Hospital. She was a member of the First Congregational Church, as well as a very involved grandma for her four grandchildren. She was the strength of the family – a real angel. She loved music, mostly Glen Campbell, and was the media and active socialite for anyone that would listen to her news report. She read local papers daily to glean any information that she could extend. Linda is survived and missed dearly by her husband of 58 years Donald, her daughters Demarie Jones and Debra (Mark Duffie) Goodney and her grandchildren; Taryn (Russell) Carew, Mackenzie (Haley) Jones, Zachary Goodney, and Patrick Goodney. She is also survived by her great grand-daughter Maeve Carew, along with her brothers Gary (Nancy Walsh) and Richard (Grace), her sister Connie (Gordon) Mosley, and five nieces and four nephews. She is preceded in death by her parents and her son-in-law Peter Jones. The family would like to thank the staff at Orchard Creek Senior Living and Health Care for caring for Linda in her final months. A Funeral Service celebrating Linda’s life will take place Saturday, February 1, 2020 at 2 pm at the Reynolds Jonkhoff Funeral Home, with visitation from 1 pm until the time of the service.
