Linda Lee Hockman passed away peacefully at her home on March 29, 2015. Our gentle angel has found her way home to her mom, dad and sisters. Linda was born on September 5, 1960 in Kearney, NE to Warren and Dorothy Hockman. She lived her life with her family always by her side. For her first 40 years, she lived with her parents as her dad's ministry took them across Nebraska and Kansas until finally settling in Oklahoma City. Since 2000, Linda lived her life with her brother, Gary and his partner, Roger as they made a safe and gentle home for her. Her life was filled with love. Linda's gifts to us were easy gifts. She was the guardian of the endless pictures her dad took of the family, always happy to share them with anyone who entered her life. She loved Little House on the Prairie and had the greatest thrill of her life when she got to meet Melissa Gilbert in person. She knew when things were pretty, whether it was a flower in a garden or the sun in the sky. Linda taught us the joy of a smile, the healing nature of a hug, the gentleness in our own hearts, and just how easy love can be. Linda was preceded in death by her parents, her sister Mary Ellen, her sister Janet and her sister Pat (Hockman) Penny. Linda is survived by her brothers, Gary Hockman and Roger Klenke, of the home, her nephew Jason Barkley, his wife, Tiffany and their daughters, Kyra and Kaylee of Arlington, TX. The family will receive friends Wednesday, April 1 from 5 – 7 p.m. at Smith & Kernke, N. May. Graveside service will be 3 p.m. Thursday in Edgar, NE. If desired, contributions may be made to a charity of your choice.
