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.

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.
