Linda Sue (Schlieper) Davis-Perkins, 66, of Pittsfield, Ill., formerly of Rock Island, passed away on May 26, 2012, at home surrounded by her family.

Cremation rites have been accorded, and a memorial service is being held at 10 a.m. Saturday, June 2, at Chippiannock Cemetery, Rock Island.

She was born July 6, 1945, in Burlington, Iowa, to Orvil and Rosalia Flatt Schlieper. She married Wilbur Ray Perkins on June 3, 2010, in Quincy, Ill.

Linda retired from Eastside Health and Rehabilitation Center in Pittsfield, where she enjoyed all of the residents. Linda was the type that told it like it was, and a lot of people loved her for that. Linda enjoyed fishing and spending time with her kids and grandkids.

More recently, unable to leave her home, she enjoyed talking to family and friends on Facebook and playing "Bingo by Ryzing" on there. She also had a special fondness for her daughter's dog, Cooper.

She is survived by her husband, a resident of the Illinois Veterans Home in Quincy; her three daughters, Trixie (Ronald) Griffin, Rock Island, Trinkett (Jay) Smith, Pittsfield, and Tonya (Billy) Walston, Pittsfield; 13 grandchildren; six great-grandchildren; three brothers, Norman (Gloria) Schlieper, Bon Secour, Ala., Thomas (Sherry) Schlieper, Nebo, Ill., and Steve Schlieper, Colona; two sisters, Gretchen (Robert) Klein, Cedar Rapids, Iowa, and Diane (Everett) Triplett, Pittsfield.

Linda was preceded in death by her parents; three brothers, David Schlieper, Jack Schlieper and Gregory Lynn Schlieper; a sister, Janice Claybrook; a granddaughter, Audry Renee Griffin; and a grandson, Alexander Ryan Griffin.
