It is with a heavy heart that our dearest mother, Linda Sue (Ruell) LaRocque passed away December 6, 2022 at home surrounded by her family.
Linda had just celebrated her 73rd birthday on November 20th.
Linda was born in Cadillac on November 20, 1949 to David and Helen (Hinchcliffe) Ruell.
Linda is and was a true Angel here on earth. She spent her life helping everyone and giving to everyone until she had nothing left to give. She never once complained or asked for anything in return and her fight for life itself never stopped until her last breath.
This world was a better place because Linda was in it. This world has lost a true Angel and now heaven has gained one. Linda will be truly missed.
Linda is survived by her husband, Gerald LaRocque and daughter, Cynthia ( Keith Berry) Rockafellow of Pierson and son, David (Dorean) Rockafellow of Illinois and her grandchildren, Joseph (Autumn) LaRocque, Daniel LaRocque and Kaitlynn Rockafellow and a great grandson, Wyatt Brown.
She is also survived by her brother, Jerry Ruell of Oklahoma and dozens of nephews and nieces and other family members and friends.
Linda was preceded in death by her parents, a grandson, Jhonathan Brown, brothers; David, Dennis, Ed, Daniel and Robert and sisters; Barbara and Margorie.
