Linda Sue DePaulo- Hargraves

Linda Sue DePaulo-Hargraves was born in Oceanside, NY in 1955 and passed away at 2:33 PM on October 23rd, 2021, a beautiful and peaceful Saturday afternoon, with her daughter JoAnne and her husband Joe by her bedside. She was an amazing woman, caring mother to her daughters Regina and JoAnne, and a loving wife and best friend to her husband Joe for 28 years. She had a love of literature and writing that she shared with those around her. Prior to her illness, she taught an English class for homeschoolers and was also the College and Careers Coordinator for the local homeschool group, a role she created, introducing students to a variety of professional and higher education possibilities.

She grew up in Massapequa, NY and moved away in her twenties, first to Egypt and then to Seattle, WA. Most of her adult life she lived in Bath, NY. She loved all the people she crossed paths with there and her coworkers at the Department of Environmental Conservation where she worked for over a decade. She eventually moved to San Antonio, TX in 2009.

She fought a long battle with stage 3C ovarian cancer for 7 ½ years. She was blessed with good hospitals and many great doctors and healthcare workers. In her final days she was grateful for all of the caring hospice workers and the caregivers at Abode Contemplative Care for the Dying who ensured her comfortable transition into the next life.

Linda is at peace now with her father and mother, Anthony (Tony) and Jeanne DePaulo, her aunts and uncles, her nephew, Timothy (Tim) Rumsey, and her brother-in-law, Harry (Mike) Hargraves of Bath.

She leaves behind her husband, Joseph (Joe) Hargraves, her daughters, Regina (Gina) Kamal of Los Angeles, CA, and JoAnne (Jo) Hargraves of San Antonio, TX, her sister, Leigh Rumsey, of Bath, NY, many brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law and nieces and nephews in Bath, NY, Webster, NY, and Dallas, TX, and many extended family members and friends. She truly loved all of you.

Bless you sweetheart, I will always love you – Joe
