Linda Brock, a former Trenton resident, passed away peacefully on July 6, 2022, in Paris, TX.
The family will hold a memorial service at First United Methodist Church in Arlington, TX, on August 13, 2022.
Linda Sue Fick Brock was born in Kansas City on August 21, 1942 to Elmer Edward and Grayce Vivian Kincaid Fick. She grew up in Kingwood and Trenton. At age 4, she contracted polio and underwent therapies, surgeries, and rehabilitation efforts until the age of 13. Though Linda utilized crutches and braces to walk, it never impeded her from experiencing all life had to offer, including learning to drive a car.
After graduating from Trenton High School in 1960, she attended Central Methodist College in Fayette for two years and then Washington University in St. Louis, where she received her Bachelor of Science in Occupational Therapy in 1964.
She was married on August 30, 1964 to David Carl Brock in St. Louis. He preceded her in death.
Linda is survived by her three children and their spouses, Drew and Lisha Brock of Arlington, TX, Karyn and Marc Alvarez of Carrollton, TX and Laura and Kasey King of Humble, TX; and grandchildren, Jackson Brock and significant other, Leah Shelton and her daughter, Layla, granddaughter Leyna Cromarty and husband, Jules, Grayson Maynard, Konnor King, Khloe King, Ryan Alvarez and Benjamin Pittman.
In addition to her husband, she was preceded in death by her parents, Elmer and Grayce Fick.
