Linda Elene Thompson Mobley
Linda Elene Thompson Mobley, 74, of Uvalde, Texas, passed away on October 28, 2020, when she closed her eyes and went to be with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Her husband, John, was by her side at her passing at the Uvalde Memorial Hospital. Linda struggled with several different aliments, but primarily kidney failure. She born in Pearsall, Texas on January 8, 1946 to Elene and Newton Thompson.
Linda was chosen to attend Texas Girls State, was a Wildcat Twirler, played flute in the Wildcat high school band, choral group, and graduated from Carrizo Springs High School in 1964. She attended business school in Austin, Tx and then later became employed as a dispatcher for various police departments in several Texas towns before having to undergo surgery and survived breast cancer. Most importantly, Linda was a devout Christian and put nothing before her love of Christ, her Lord and Savior. In March, 2009, she married her husband, John Mobley and her new life blossomed in that marriage. She became a very devoted and active member of the Frio Canyon Baptist Church in Leakey, Texas. John said of Linda “she had the purest mind of any person I have ever know and always put everyone before herself. She never met a person that did not come to love her as their own.”
