Linda Sue (Duckworth) King Obituary

November 4, 1953 - January 10, 2017
Linda Sue (Duckworth) King, age 63, passed away peacefully in her sleep on Tuesday, January 10, 2017 at her childhood home in San Antonio, Texas. Sue was born in Ft. Bragg, North Carolina on November 4, 1953. When her parents gained divine wisdom (and military orders to report to Ft. Sam Houston), they moved to San Antonio in the great State of Texas. She was a 1971 graduate of Douglas Macarthur High School and went on to study business management at San Antonio College. She worked in restaurant management and later on as a human resources and department manager for Walmart. Sue truly lived life well through simple pleasures: chatting with friends and family, singing karaoke, and spending time with her grandchildren. Sue had the great ability to reach people in a deep and positive way. Her ever-present smile and positive attitude guided her and those she loved through the most difficult times. Left to honor Sue and remember her love are Sue's sons, Danny King and Michael King; her daughter, Heather Smith; six grandchildren: Faith King, Jasmine Smith, Colby King, Frank Christopher Smith III, Julia Smith and Gracie Smith; her brother Bruce Duckworth; and many dear nieces, nephews, and cousins. Sue was preceded in death by her Father, W.T. Willie Duckworth (SFC Ret.), her Mother, Patricia Jean (Wylie) Duckworth, and her brother Steve Duckworth. Sue will be remembered as a bright, shining light to those lives she touched and to those communities she served. Family, friends, and others whose lives Sue touched are invited to Salon III at the Doubletree by Hilton San Antonio Airport, 37 NE Loop 410 (at McCullough), San Antonio, on Saturday, January 21, 2017 from 5:00 - 8:00 pm to celebrate her life, reminisce, grieve, support each other and, of course, just chat. In lieu of flowers, please donate in her memory to the American Heart Association or the Cancer Research Institute.

Sorry to hear of her passing. I lived just a block away from her, and knew her well. She was a shining star, and couldn't help but cheer you up. My sincere condolences to her family, and friends.

Linda and I shared the same fall birthday and date throughout our many school years, and we were one of the youngest members of our high school graduating class.  - Time has marched on for all of us since then and it is so sad to lose another long-time classmate, proving once again, "We should not regret growing older because it is a privilege denied to many." - My condolences to Linda's family for their loss.  Glad to read that she had a full life and six thriving grandchildren to carry on her goodness and the family name.
