Linda Lee (Pace) Kingston, 61, passed away Monday, February 2, 2009, at St. John's Hospital in Springfield, Missouri.
Linda was born in Marshall, Missouri, on November 27, 1947, to William and Flora "Tommie" Pace. She lived in Des Moines, Iowa, for several years before moving back to Missouri. She was retired and enjoyed quilting, sewing, cooking and singing. Her family especially enjoyed receiving her homemade gifts as much as she enjoyed giving them. She had a natural talent for interior decorating and loved to help family members with decorating their homes. Her two grandsons, Kaleb and Kolby, were the apple of her eye. She was a member of the Church of the Brethren in Cabool, Missouri, and enjoyed volunteering her time and homemade cooking for church luncheons.
Linda is survived by her husband, Daniel Kingston of Norwood, Missouri, her son, Omar Alawadi, and daughter, Idah (Chuck) Newquist, both of Des Moines and two grandsons, Kaleb and Kolby. She is survived by three sisters, Lavonne Garrison, Billie Jean Skelton and Debbie (Russ) Richardson of Des Moines and a brother, Rodney Pace of Marshall, Missouri. Linda had six nieces, six nephews, seven great-nieces, six great-nephews, and 16 great-great-nieces and nephews. Linda will be greatly missed by her family and friends. She was preceded in death by her parents.
