The Sentinel-Record 2-18-1977
A memorial service has been scheduled Friday at 2 p.m. for Linda Louise (Ockert) Edwards. 29, the Garland County sheriff’s deputy who was found dead Sunday.
Mrs. Edwards had been missing since last Aug. 22. when her car was found abandoned on a rural road near the Carpenter Dam.
Her remains were found by hunters on Jack Mountain, just off the Files Ranch Road in Hot Spring County.
Because the state medical examiner’s tests on Mrs. Edwards’ body will continue next week, the memorial service has been scheduled for the sake of out-of-town relatives.
The service will take place at the First United Methodist Church. Dr. George Martin, pastor, will officiate.
In lieu of flowers, the family has asked that contributions may be made to a trust fund being established for Mrs. Edwards’ children. Contributions may be made to Mrs. Edwards’ mother, Mrs. Irene Browning, trustee of her estate, at 505 Zinnia. Hot Springs, Ark. 71901, or may be made through the Garland County Sheriff’s Office.
A graveside service will be announced later by Gross Mortuary.
