Linda Lawrence, 75, of Findlay passed away on Sunday, June 1, 2014 at her residence. She was born Linda Jenkins to Elwood and Guila (Leisure) Jenkins in Bellefontaine, OH on November 8, 1938. On August 29, 1970, she married Tom Lawrence in Findlay and he survives as do children: Kristin Kromer of Carey and Zach Lawrence of Columbus and grandchildren: Jakob Seibert and Kodak Lawrence. A brother David Jenkins is in Huntsville, Ohio. She was preceded in death by a brother, Ron Jenkins.

Linda was a born again Christian and a vibrant believer. She led her husband and two children to the Lord. God gave her the spiritual gifts of hospitality and teaching and she demonstrated them both in wonderful ways in spite of experiencing difficult health issues all of her life.

Linda graduated from Huntsville in 1956 and from Miami of Ohio with an education degree in 1966. She completed her Master's Degree at Miami in 1971. She taught at Liberty-Benton and at Jacobs and Northview grade schools in Findlay for ten years. When help was needed on the farm, she managed Lawrence Produce for many years. She was a caretaker for five people during their last years. They included her parents in law, D.D. and Isabelle Lawrence, her mother and Opal and Dick Thompson, over times covering more then ten years.

During her last days, Linda experienced the peace of the Lord, having claimed the assurance of her eternal salvation from the scriptures as promised in John 5:24, John 10:28-29 and First John 5:13. Precious in the sight of the Lord is the dead of his saints: Psalm 116:15.

Her giving and compassionate character is the memory that she leaves with many people whose lives she touched. The family would like to thank the doctors and nurses all who provided wonderful care.

Visitation will be held from 2-4 and 6-8pm on Wednesday, June 4, 2014 at COLDREN-CRATES FUNERAL HOME, Findlay. Funeral services will be held at 10:00am on Thursday, June 5, 2014 at the First Baptist Church in Findlay. Pastor Paul Reimer will officiate and burial will follow in Bright Cemetery. Memorial contributions may be made to the First Baptist Church in Findlay in her memory.
