(7/25/1947 - 9/28/2008)

Linda Diane Johnson, 61, of Coal Valley, IL, graduated to Heaven on Sunday, September 28, 2008, at Trinity Medical Center, West Campus, Rock Island, after a courageous battle with cancer.

A Celebration of Life Memorial service will be held at 5 p.m. Friday, October 17 at Heritage Wesleyan Church, 4801 44th St., Rock Island. Memorials may be made to the family. Weerts Funeral Home, Davenport, is assisting the family with arrangements.

Linda Diane Schlitter was born July 25, 1947, in Davenport. A graduate of West High School in 65, she then earned her bachelor degree in church ministry. She married Terry Johnson on October 17, 1969. The couple resided in Scotland County, MO, for several years.

She was filled with the Holy Spirit and everyone around her could see it. She was an inspirational daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother, friend, and will be deeply missed.

Survivors include husband, Terry; daughters, Deb (Ken), Tera (Rich), and Naomi; mother, Darlene Schlitter; brother, Buster; and mother-in-law, Opal Johnson. Linda was also an amazing grandmother to Kati, Trevor, Xander, Breanna, Sean, Macs, Hank, Cole and Isabella. She is also survived by her best friend and sister-in-Christ, Betty DuVal.

She was preceded in death by her father, Fritz Schlitter; father-in-law, Dale Johnson; and her sister, Pat Oaks.
