Linda Daniels

Linda Hunter Daniels, born on April 3, 1943, in the Township of Manchester, Arkansas, passed away on April 25, 2024. She was a woman of many talents and passions whose life touched the hearts of those around her.
 
Linda's professional journey was marked by dedication and versatility. While she predominantly worked in secretarial roles, she showcased her skills at various establishments including UAMS and Timex. Even after retiring, Linda continued to contribute part-time, a testament to her strong work ethic and commitment.
 
Beyond her professional successes, Linda's true joys were found in her family and interests. A fervent supporter of the Razorbacks, she found even greater joy in cheering for her grandchildren and great-grandchildren at their sporting events—an expression of her unwavering love and support for them.
 
Cooking held a special place in Linda's heart; she delighted in preparing meals not only for her family but also for her cherished chihuahua CoCo. Her memberships at Saline Independent Methodist Church, and the Eastern Star spoke to her deep-rooted faith and sense of community.
 
Preceding Linda in death are her loving husband of 62 years, Glen “Duck” Daniels; her parents, Robert and Elzie Hunter; and siblings: Ruth Smith, Martha King, Carolyn Hunter, Genny Chaney, and Kenneth Hunter.
