Linda (Goforth) Batchelor of Clifton CO passed away January 25, 2008 at St. Mary's Hospital after a long illness at the age of 59.
Linda was born in Cortez CO on December 9, 1948 to Kennith and Joyce (Church) Goforth. She spent her childhood in the southwest attending school in Nucla where she graduated in 1967. After graduation she moved to Grand Junction and worked at Dixon's and Sparston's. She met Dave Batchelor in 1969 and they married in June of that year. She was a beautician for many years, but most recently worked at Community Hospital. She enjoyed her work and loved her co-workers.
Linda sang with the Sweet Adeline's Chorus for many years until her work kept her from competing, but she still attended as many concerts as she could. Linda loved to knit, crochet, paint, needle point, and reading a good book. She also enjoyed camping and fishing.
Although she had no children, she considered her nieces and nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews her children and they were all her "Little Sparkles".
