Linda was a daughter of the late Leroy Conningsby Tanner and Judith Carol Snyder Tanner. In addition to her father, she is predeceased by her husband, Lawrence “Larry” James Minnick; brother, Joseph Tanner; and sister, Julie Platt.
Linda was known for her big heart and her love for everyone. She was a mother to many and made a home for anyone in need. She had a way of making people laugh, even if she was the only one that thought it was funny. Her laughter was contagious and there was no way to avoid it. Linda loved to go thrift store shopping and she was always after a bargain. She was a great mother and a wonderful grandmother. She treasured her children and grandchildren and embraced every moment she spent with them. She especially loved her role as Grandmother. Those touched by her smile, laugh and personality were truly blessed.
Surviving is her mother, Judith Tanner; children, John Minnick, Steven (Leslie) Minnick, and David Minnick; grandchildren, Jaelin, Amya, Jonay, and Aiden Minnick; sisters, Karen Parks and Amanda Carpenter; brothers, Robert Tanner, David Tanner, John Tanner and Steven Pyles.
