Linda Rae Terry Stratford
1943 ~ 2016

Our beautiful mother, daughter, grandmother and sister passed away peacefully of natural causes in her home Thursday, January 28, 2016.

Linda Rae Terry Stratford was born in San Bernardino, California on September 28, 1943 to Ambrose Ray Terry and Lila Rose Hayes Terry. She met and fell in love with Theron Jack Stratford, Jr. They sealed their love on February 24, 1961 in the Los Angeles, California Temple. Two and a half months ago her heart broke as she had to temporarily say good-bye to her sweetheart. Now they have been reunited, never to part again.

She would do anything unconditionally for her children and grandchildren. She was very generous with everyone and she always put their needs before her own. Aside from her family, her number one love was the beach. She spent as many days as she could relaxing and rejuvenating on the sand listening to the sound of the waves. That was her favorite. Part of her last days were spent in Hawaii for Christmas with her granddaughter. She was incredibly happy there.

Linda was an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. She served in a variety of church callings and loved every one of them. Her favorite callings were serving in the Primary, as a Stake Missionary and a temple worker in the Mount Timpanogos Temple in the nursery taking care of the children and bringing them to the sealing room to their parents. Her grandchildren loved snuggling up to her on her bed. She especially loved snuggling every new baby that came into the family. She sure loved snuggling the babies!

Linda is survived by her mother Lila Terry, daughter Shelly Rose (Glen), daughter Susan Baird (Kent), daughter Shauna Ochs (Eric), son Steven Stratford (Brandy), sisters Becky Riggs and Dawn Ellingson, brother Ronnie Terry and 17 grandchildren. She is preceded in death by her husband Jack Stratford, father Ray Terry, brother Kim Terry, sons Leland Ray, Harvey Theron and Steven Dale Stratford.

Funeral Services will be held on Wednesday, February 3, 2016 at 11:00 am in the Cedar Hollow Stake Center, 2178 North 1200 East, Lehi, Utah. Family and friends may call on Wednesday from 9:30 to 10:30 am prior to services at the church. Interment will follow the services at the Highland City Cemetery in Highland, Utah.
