Linda Wagner

Daughter of Luther and Clara Cooper. Survived by her devoted husband of almost 51 years, Mike Wagner and her beloved son, Michael Wagner, daughter in law, Josie Wagner, and her grandson, Jackson Wagner. Also, her sister, Lou Hudson, and brother, Glenn Cooper, and his wife Betty. She is also survived by many extended family members in the Christian brotherhood. We know that Linda was deeply loved by everyone who knew her.

The example Linda set in showing concern, kindness, and compassion to everyone in her life is what we remember about her most. She was always available with a listening ear, and the warm sincerity she showed was followed by beautiful words of encouragement and the sweetest smile you’ve ever seen. The wisdom with which she spoke came from her cultivation of a relationship based on deep love and respect for her heavenly father, Jehovah. Since Linda’s baptism on September 23rd, in 1953, as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses, she spent her life following the example that Jesus Christ set in demonstrating love through both her words and her actions. Linda’s genuine warmth had a powerful effect on those whose lives she touched. It was a blessing to know and love her, and we thank our gracious God Jehovah for the gift we had in Linda Wagner. We look forward to the future paradise and resurrection; the beautiful day when we will welcome back the sweet wife, mother, nana, and friend that we had in Linda. If she could comfort us now, it would be with her favorite scripture found in Philippians 4:6, 7 – “Do not be anxious over anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication along with thanksgiving, let your petitions be made known to God; and the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and your mental powers by means of Christ Jesus.”

“Jehovah Is My Shepherd”
(Psalm 23)
Jehovah God is my Shepherd;
So why should I fear or fret?
For he who cares for his sheep so much
Will none of his own forget.
By quiet waters he leads me,
My soul does restore and bless.
He guides my steps for his own name’s sake
In pathways of righteousness.
He guides my steps for his own name’s sake
In pathways of righteousness
Alone in depths of deep shadow,
I walk, yet I fear no harm.
For my Great Shepherd is always near;
His staff keeps me from alarm.
My head with oil he refreshes;
My cup he has filled up well.
His loving-kindness will follow me,
And there in his house I’ll dwell.
His loving-kindness will follow me,
And there in his house I’ll dwell.
How wise and loving my Shepherd!
His praises with joy I sing.
The cheering news of his tender care
To sheeplike ones I will bring.
His Word I’ll faithfully follow,
Walk carefully in his way.
My glorious treasure of serving him,
I’ll gratefully use each day.
My glorious treasure of serving him,
I’ll gratefully use each day.

“You will call, and I will answer you.
You will long for the work of your hands.”
Job 4:15
