Linda Jean Arbaugh-Sharp of Grenada passed away on January 5, 2023. She was born February 3, 1942 to William and Nancy Arbaugh in Grass Valley, California

Upon graduating from Nevada Union High School in 1959, Linda started working at the DMV in Sacramento. On January 6th, 1961 she married Chester Leroy Sharp. They later moved to Grenada in 1970 where they made their home.

Her kindhearted nature helped many people. Her home has always been a refuge for anyone in need. Her love for children was reflected in the 32 years she devoted to over 500 foster children. She continued her passion of caring for others by working as an elderly care provider doing In Home Care and working at the Grenada Inn.

Linda and Chester were married 61 years and had 5 children: Carl (deceased 1983), Craig (Maria), David (Kelly), Laura (John) and Michelle (John); 11 grandchildren: Travis (Kayla), Amber, Julia, Derrick, Kaylee, Tyler, Colton, Joshua, Kimberly, Lily and Poppy; 7 great grandchildren: Grace, Erin, Andrew, Kolbee, Samantha, Ryliegh and Charlie. She is loved and missed by all.

 We will be holding a Graveside Service at the Edgewood Cemetery on Friday January 20th, 2023 at 11:00am. Celebration of life to follow at the Weed Community Center.

The family requests those who wish to express sympathy in lieu of flowers to consider making a donation to their favorite charity in Linda’s name.
