Linda D. Parker (Lakey) was born Wednesday January 4, 1956 at Trinity Hospital in Arcata. Her parents were Doris & Greg (Pierce) Lakey Jr.

She had two brothers, Ronald (wife Renee) and David (wife Angela), and a sister, Patricia. She had three daughters, including Lacy Renee Ramey and Lauren Marissa Parker. Lacy lives in Arkansas and has three children: Quentin, Kennedi and Adalyn, along with new granddaughter Nova. Lauren lives here in Eureka with her husband Don; they have two children, Myah and Kyle, and Myah has two daughters: Effie and Gemma.

Linda loved spending time with family, especially at the holidays. Before her health stopped her she loved combing the beaches for agates.

She always had a shy nature to her, but once she opened up she was very funny. She had great stories from when she lived in both Alaska and Arkansas. She also lived in Los Angeles for a little while when joining the Job Corps. She bragged about the fact that she lived on the 9th floor with no elevator.

She loved video games — everything from Animal Crossing to slaying dragons in Skyrim, which she rocked at. She also had a cat named Boo who she loved very much. She loved the San Francisco Giants and 49ers. (4ever faithful). As we will always be to you. Luv u Mom — LMP.

If you see a stray animal in need, always do the best to help of your ability, even if it’s just a phone call to your local police department.
