Linda Lucille Siddle


Linda Lucille Siddle, (Lynn) 60, of Houston, Texas returned to the non-physical Wednesday, June 8, 2020. She was born at home in Chicago, Illinois on March 30, 1960 in Cook County to Eleanor Mae King Harman and Charles Merle Harman. She grew up in a large family, the youngest of eight.

In 1990 Linda moved to Brownwood, Texas to be near her sister Mary. She raised her four children there alongside her life partner James Darrell Jones.

Linda was a light in the lives of many with her fun-loving attitude and infectious laugh. She loved spending time with her many grandchildren hunting for a bargain at yard sales and resale shops. Regular trips to the dollar store was a delight for her grandchildren and her alike as she loved seeing her babies smile. Her family is left with fond memories of warm conversations over hot coffee and summertime fun at the beach, the pool, and the lake. She was a firecracker and never minded telling people what she thought. She always said, "dynamite comes in tiny packages" and she was that exactly. She was fierce, unapologetically strong, and absolutely unforgettable.

Linda is survived by her four children Charles Manous of Brownwood, TX, Brian Manous of Ft. Worth, TX, Amber Lynn Pelham of Houston, TX, and Douglas Siddle of Brownwood, TX; Her siblings Charlotte Harman Grabe of Oak Forest, Ill,  Chuck Harman (Sindie) of Rail Road Flat, CA ,  James Harman of Mediapois, Iowa and Betty Rangel of Niles Ohio. Her grandchildren Christopher, Payton, Kera, Skylar, Abigail, Richard, Zoe, Courtney Lynn, Shanna, Jake, Jacelynn, Jazelynn, Jeremiah, Phoenix, Jaxon, and Creedence; great grandchildren Dawson and Addison along with many nieces, nephews, and cousins.

Linda is preceded in death by her parents Eleanor and Charles Harman, her life partner James Darrell Jones, sister Mary Elizabeth Baker, brother William A. Harman, brother John Edward Harman, grandson Anthony Duce Dattalo and her brother in law, Carl E. Anderson.

A luncheon will be held to celebrate Linda's life at noon on August 21, 2020 at Haven of Hope Church at 1617 Main Blvd. in Brownwood Texas followed by a memorial service.

To honor Linda, our Little Texas Red, the family requests attendees wear her favorite color, red.

While flowers are always welcome and appreciated, the family has set up a GoFundMe to help with final expenses.
