Obituary

Linda L. Quebe, a fourth-generation Galvestonian, passed away Saturday, November 14, 2015, at UTMB in Galveston, Texas.

Born October 25, 1945, Linda was a 1963 graduate of Dominican High School and was active in the alumni association at the time of her passing.

Linda was very proud to say she was BOI (Born on the Island) and a descendant of survivors of the 1900 Storm. She loved Galveston and enjoyed sharing stories of her childhood in the East End.

She worked for over 20 years in various positions at the Galveston Daily News. She also worked for Dr. Russell Barnett, DDS, and the William Temple Foundation, among others.

Linda will be remembered for having a heart as big as Texas, a jovial laugh, and a friendly smile. Linda could go anywhere in Galveston and be among friends. She was the family historian and photographer, lovingly documenting and sharing all that she learned.

Beyond her many friendships with people, Linda was a friend to all animals and was known to help care for strays. She donated to a variety of animal organizations. She also loved to cook and was recognized for her wonderful holiday baked goods.

Linda was a lifelong member of Sacred Heart Church. Throughout her life, she volunteered countless hours at Sacred Heart and could always be found at 7:30 mass on Sunday in her usual spot with friends. As a young adult, she was a Girl Scout troop leader, teaching girls in her troop about her love of sailing and other important skills.

She is preceded in death by her parents, Myrtle and Raymond J. Quebe, Sr.; sister, Doris Jean Quebe; aunts, Doris Petitfils and Georgette Kassler; and numerous pets. She is survived by her brother, Raymond J. Quebe, of Austin; brother, Richard J. Quebe, of San Antonio and his wife, Karen; niece, Julia Peterson, and her husband, Scott; great nieces, Siena and Justine Peterson; nephews, Jeff Quebe and Kyle Quebe; and her cat, Gert, along with numerous cousins and extended family members.

Linda’s family will receive visitors beginning at 5:00pm, Friday, November 20th, at Malloy & Son Funeral Home. A rosary will begin at 6:30pm, led by Deacon Sam Dell’Ollio. Funeral Mass will be 11:00am, Saturday, November 21st, at Sacred Heart Church with Father EJ Stein, OFM, officiating. Burial will follow at Calvary Catholic Cemetery. Pallbearers will be Kyle J. Quebe, Jeffrey R. Quebe, Thomas E. Quebe, Johnny Baulch, Scott Peterson, and Scott Kassler.

In lieu of flowers, Linda’s family asks that you make donations in her memory to your local humane society. They would like to thank Gerald and Mary Anne Kassler, and friends, Jim Cantrell, Kathy Welton, Terri Burchfield and family, Cleta Sireno, Maureen Hebler, Johnny Morris, Bebe Rizo, Anne Halligan and Tom Quebe for their support during and beyond Linda’s hospitalization, along with the medical staff at UTMB John Sealy Hospital.

My thoughts and prayers go out to Linda's family. I went to Dominican High School with Linda and was a couple of years ahead of her class (1960). She was a wonderful lady who had such love for her friends and former classmates and she will be missed very much. She was so thoughtful in keeping us Alumni's informed of us who no longer live on the Island of events. RIP my friend.

Linda and I have been friends for 65 years. We started together at Sacred Heart and continued as classmates through Dominican. Linda loved her family and they were so lucky to have her. I will miss Linda and our talks. RIP

I would like to send my thoughts and prayers to Linda's family. I attended Dominican High School class of 1966. Linda was a very involved in school activities and was kind to all. I would pass Linda's house on my way home from school and she and her Mom would always speak to me. I looked forward to seeing them on my walk home. May Linda rest in peace in the loving arms of our Savior.

Just a few short months ago,Linda walked into my life through the William Temple Foundation. She quickly became my go to person for all my questions and support. She loved the medical students of the Galveston community and encouraged me to do the same without reservation. I especially will always cherish the fact that she loved me right away and treated me as though I had known her all my life. I know that the Lord opened his arms to her and said, "Well done my good and faithful servant."
