Linda Mones

July 27, 1948 — May 30, 2024

Linda Lee Mones passed away on May 30, 2024 in Encinitas, California after a brief battle with cancer. She was born on July 27, 1948, in Long Beach, California, Linda was the beloved third of ten children born to Bill and Meda Norman. She was preceded in death by her parents, her sisters Barbara Cooley and Merlene Atkinson, and her brother Steve Norman. Linda leaves behind a large and loving family, including her six brothers and sisters: Bill Norman, Bonnie Fairchild, Penny Laming, Jeanette Leap, Tim Norman, and April Carl. She is also survived by her cherished children, Arlene Rentz (Lee) and Jason Mones (Nicole), and her adored grandchildren, Olivia, Joseph, and Lee Rentz IV. 

Linda’s children were her pride and joy. She loved traveling and doing water excursions with her daughter, Arlene, whether it was watching dolphins or taking a boat to Coronado. With her son, Jason, she shared a special bond through their deep and meaningful conversations. Linda’s career in nursing was marked by dedication and excellence. She thrived in nursing and later in home healthcare. Her work in hyperbaric medicine began in Long Beach and eventually led her to Birmingham, Alabama, where she played a key role in starting hyperbaric medicine there. 

Linda’s career progressed to surgery intensive care, where she often served as head nurse in various departments. After moving back to California in 1997, she found her true passion in home healthcare, particularly in working with people with dementia. She cherished the one-on-one interactions with her clients and their families, always going out of her way to ensure their comfort and well-being. 

Linda will be remembered for her hardworking and caring nature. She gave her all to her work and the people she loved, leaving a lasting impact on everyone who had the privilege of knowing her. 

A memorial service will be held in her honor on her birthday, July 27 at Jefferson Memorial Funeral Homes and Gardens in Trussville, Alabama
