Linda  Boggs
Linda Sue Thaxton Boggs passed away on Saturday, August 3, 2019 after an illness and hospitalization in Tulsa at the age of 75. She was the eldest of five children born to Benjamin Stokes and Charlotte Roberta (Hale) Thaxton. Linda was the family historian. She spent most of the past fifteen years compiling thousands of pages of historical information, weaving the threads of family members dating back to the thirteenth century.
In 1962, Linda graduated from Dewey High School, Dewey, Oklahoma. She worked at Popkess Drug Store until she married her high school sweetheart, Manning Alden Boggs, on November 5, 1962. Manning joined the U.S. Air Force and they began a life of making their home in several states, as far away as Guam, and ended in retirement in Houston, Texas. Their marriage ended in 1992.
Their union was blessed with three daughters, Brigitte Boggs of Grove, Oklahoma, Shannon Champion and husband Robert of Lago Vista, Texas, and Cassandra Boggs of Coffeyville, Kansas.
Anyone who knew Linda was sure the center of her world was her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. They are Chance Boggs, wife Raschelle and daughters, DJ and Brooklyn, of Corpus Christi Texas, Chelsea Profitt, husband, Dakota and son, Jett, of Lago Vista, Texas, Jared Boggs, wife Shaylan, daughter Addison and son Benjamin, of Orange, Texas and Joshua Boggs of Chelsea.
Linda is survived by her mother Charlotte Thaxton, brother Ben Thaxton of Dewey, Oklahoma, sister Nancy Messimore and husband Johnny of Claremore, Oklahoma, sister Lori Hager and husband Stephen of Claremore, Oklahoma, and brother Todd Thaxton and wife Dana of Chelsea, Oklahoma, along with numerous nieces, nephews and their children. She was preceded in death by her father and ex-husband.
When asked what Linda's lifelong occupation was, her daughters were quick to answer "Warrior!" They later settled on a more acceptable answer of "Mom and homemaker." Being a very private person, Linda asked that no services be held. Her family gathered today for lunch and to celebrate Linda's life with funny stories and lots of laughter. Linda was greatly loved and will be, even more so, greatly missed.
