Linda Jean Goodman Jobe, 75, devoted and loving mother, Nanny, sister, aunt, and friend passed away of complications due to covid-19 on Friday, December 31, 2021. She was born in Enid, Oklahoma on October 13, 1946. During Linda’s school years, the Goodman family lived in most of the southern states as well as several countries overseas (including Japan, France, and Spain) as her father was in the Army Air Corp and then went with the Air Force once it was first organized. Once back in the States, Linda finished high school in Jonesboro with the class of 1964 and then went on to graduate from Arkansas State University in 1968.  Linda retired from Cessna after many years in the accounting/finance department. She was an active member of Three Angels Seventh Day Adventist church and once she became homebound she faithfully joined them online from home.  She was proud to be a board member and active volunteer for Project Robby, and was thrilled to be elected the President of the Resident Council at Dove Estates. She was deeply loved and will be missed by all. A memorial service will be scheduled by the family at a later date.
