Linda McConnell-Doud

Dec 25, 1987 - Jul 14, 2016


Linda McConnell-Doud sadly passed away at the young age of 28 in a tragic car accident on the night of July 14th, 2016. Her father, Keith McConnell, precedes her in death as he passed in a motorcycle accident in 2005. Linda is survived by her loving husband Jerry Doud, son Tyson, sister Megan, grandparents Tyke and Nelda McConnell, and many more family members and friends that loved her profoundly. She is also survived by Kali, Lady, and Murphy, her three dogs whom she cared for and loved dearly.

Linda was born on December 25, 1987 in Wuerzburg, Germany where her father was stationed in the U.S. Army. She attended local primary schools as a child and graduated from Sheldon High School in 2006. Linda also graduated from Paul Mitchell The School at MTI College on the Dean’s list in Sacramento, Ca in 2012. She was attending Pennsylvania State University online in pursuit of a Baccalaureate Degree in Information Technology, in which she made the Dean’s list as well. Her long term goal was to attain a job in internet security.

In June, Linda began a new job with the state of California for the Bureau of Real Estate. Before her new employment, she was a manager and stylist at a Super Cuts salon located in Elk Grove, Ca for several years. Linda has made many friends and touched many lives throughout her endeavors.

Anyone who met Linda would agree she was cheerful to be around and always filled with laughter. Linda’s good-humor created a relentless upbeat attitude in her that was infectious. Her way with words and ability to connect with people has touched many hearts. She never met a stranger.

Linda was a loving wife, mother, daughter, granddaughter, sister, niece, cousin, and friend who was always there when people needed her. She worked hard to help provide for her family and wanted the best life possible for her son. Linda was also artistic and creative, who took pride in decorating her home and was always complimented on her hair and make-up. Linda’s desire to consume Taco Bell and her obsession with the color teal will forever be remembered. Most of all, her good spirits and energy will be missed by all who knew her.

A memorial service for Linda McConnell-Doud will be held at 10:00 a.m. Saturday, August 13, at Sierra Hills Memorial Park and East Lawn Mortuary, 5757 Greenback Lane, Sacramento, Ca 95841. A luncheon will be served after the service in the reception hall at Sierra Hills Memorial Park.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you consider donations to her account.

    I am sad to hear the tragic news of Linda’s passing. She spoke frequently about her life goals and her family. Everything she did was because of the love she had for them. She was bright, beautiful, a hard worker, always positive, a genuine spirit, and so easy to talk to – because of this, I’m sure many of her clients considered her a friend. I am so grateful to have known her. She will be missed and never forgotten. My deepest sympathies to her family and friends. Love & Light, Linda, you are in my heart. I have no doubt you will continue to bloom wherever your energy has traveled to.

    I met Linda through Super Cuts and always looked forward to seeing her smiling face and friendly chats. Although I only saw her there, I feel I lost a good friend. She had that kind of affect on you. I just now heard of her passing, and my deepest thoughts and sincerest prayers go out to her husband Jerry and son Tyson, both whom she always spoke so lovingly about. May you know that God is with you during this devastating time in your life.
