Obituary of Linda Ann Malarkey


Linda Ann Malarkey, age 80, died of complications from COVID-19 on October 4th, 2020, in San Diego, California.

Linda was born on August 31, 1940, in Avon, Ohio, to parents Carl and Marlys Lorenz.

She graduated from Avon High School in 1958.

In 1960, she moved to Lakeside, CA with her parents and accepted a position with the US Postal Service where she worked for several years before accepting a position with the County of San Diego.

While working at the USPS, she met and married George Everett Malarkey in 1962 and the couple had two children together, Brian Stewart and Michael George. Linda was a great person and a loving mother.  Linda was divorced, never re-married.

Linda had a very small network of friends but good friends they were.

Her family and friends will always remember her as a generous person and devoted to her pets.

  • Michael George Malarkey of Burnet, TX, his two children, Nicholas & Devin Malarkey (and two grandchildren from Devin).
