Linda Carol (Enos) Price was the second of three children born to James Edward (Ted) and Mildred (Holland) Enos. She was born at home in Ryan Oklahoma on March 30, 1939. Linda had struggled with cancer and had just recently been released from the hospital. She had a good day Friday, had her hair and nails fixed and laughed. Later in the day, July 29, 2022, at home she was suddenly overcome and passed away quickly and quietly in the arms of her daughter Carolyn at the age of 83 years, 3 months and 29 days.
Linda traveled with her parents and sister Jo Ann across the country as her father followed the pipeline business during the war years of the 40s. They lived in Tecumseh during her teen years where she met her lifelong friend Buck Parsons. Their young family moved about Oklahoma following the oilfield until they settled in Kilgore in east Texas where they raised their family and lived most of their lives. In 1953 the family settled in Healdton Oklahoma where Linda graduated from Healdton High School in 1956. She also found her lifelong partner, Randall Lee “Randy” Price in Healdton and they were married December 23, 1955 in the First Baptist Church of Healdton. Linda graduated nursing school in Ardmore, Oklahoma in 1971 and was a 40-year practicing nurse. After the loss of her husband on December 21, 2010, Linda moved back to Healdton and was living with her daughter and son-in-law in that very same house her parents built in 1953. Linda was a devout Christian, that loved the Lord and loved people. She was baptized in Cushing at the age of 7. She had a kind heart, a beautiful smile and an infectious laugh. Linda enjoyed gardening and flowers were a big part of her life. We will all miss her.
