Linda Lee Owens (Lockwood) went to be with the Lord on June 18, 2017. She was 45 years old. Linda was born in Hayward, Calif., on Sept. 3, 1971 to Richard and Sandy Lockwood. She graduated from Argonaut High School in Jackson, Calif. She was a member of the Charleston community, where she was a practicing home health care nurse, after having spent most of her career as a cosmetologist. She loved any form of adventure, as well as the outdoors and found love in all God’s creatures, especially her cat. A petite woman with an enormous heart, Linda was a doting mother, a loving wife, and a truly beautiful person. She cared most for those that could not care for themselves. She will be dearly missed by all.

She is survived by her husband, Heath Wayne Owens; her daughter Breanna Lee Batson; stepson Parker Kelly Owens; her father, Richard Lockwood, Sr. and his wife, Kerry; her older sister Laurie Lynn Carlton and husband, Todd; her younger sister Lisa Lynn Land and husband, Clark, and her younger brother Richard, Jr. and wife, Heather. Linda is preceded in death by her mother, Sandy Sue Lockwood (Miller) in 2005.

There was a private ceremony held for immediate family. A memorial will be communicated at a later date.

Arrangements were entrusted to the care of Smith Mortuary in Charleston.
