Linda was born Dec. 21, 1945 in Sweetwater, Texas to Chester and Martha Scarborough. She grew up in Sweetwater and fondly recalled family outings and playing with cousins. Linda met her lifetime partner Chris Fege in 1965 and they were married on Jan. 11, 1967 in Abilene, Texas. The new couple moved to Arlington, Texas shortly thereafter and started their family. She worked for Johnson and Johnson and later for the Arlington Independent School District. Linda’s favorite pastimes included meeting with family and friends, studying her Bible and listening to Christian music as well as teaching the Word of God to her children and grandchildren. She was a lifelong member of the Church of Christ and a member of Pleasant Ridge Church of Christ for the past 27 years. She always looked forward to her Ladies’ Bible Class on Tuesday mornings and helping with the food bank at North Davis Church of Christ. Everyone will always remember the twinkle in her eye, warm smile and caring nature.
