Linda Sue Carrig

November 9, 1951 — September 27, 2021

  On Sept 27, 2021, Linda Sue Carrig, “Maw-Maw Linda” was called home. Born 1 of 9 siblings, Linda was born on Nov. 9, 1951 in Koshkonong, MO before moving to TX with her family in 1965 and settling in Mesquite.

  Linda was proceeded in death by her father William Edgar Todd and her mother Bertha Pauline Majors, and brother Freddie Wayne Todd. 

  Linda is survived by her husband of 30 years, Richard Martin Carrig from Royse City, Tx.  Linda is also survived by daughters Jo Lynn Browder and Melinda Kay Andrews and son John Heath Bailey.  Sons and daughters in law include Matthew Browder, Tommy Duane Norman and Bobbi Kay Bailey.  Grandchildren include Wayde, Brittany, Jeremy, Alexis, Katalena, Brailyn, Landon, Anthony, and Sarah; as well as 8 great grandchildren that she loved whole heartedly.  3 brothers, Herman, Junior and Ronnie and 4 sisters, Ruth, Paula, Della, and Joyce and many nieces and nephews and lots and lots of friends who will forever hold her in their hearts.

  After 35 years of trucking, Linda retired from Design Transportation with over 2 million Safe Miles.  When off the road, she enjoyed playing bingo, fishing, spending time with family and grandchildren, cooking big meals for family gatherings, casinos (on AND off the road), and country music.  She was often teased by family for going to a dollar store and spending hundreds of dollars and having to be home by 4pm to watch Judge Judy.

 Like most of the women in the family, she was strong willed and never gave up without a fight. She had a heart of gold and would have given you the shirt off her back.  If love could have saved her, she would have lived forever, and we will miss her dearly.
