Linda Marie McConner-Johnson passed away on Sunday, October 8, 2017 at her daughter’s home in Sacramento, California.
Linda Marie, born February 3, 1943, in Fremont, Ohio was an adventurous soul. At 18, she left Fremont to join the Navy. Stationed in Washington DC and Jacksonville FL, she served her country proudly until the birth of her first child. In 1968 she was transferred to California where she met Allen Randle. They were married in Richmond in 1969. Mom earned a BA in Liberal Studies from Cal State Hayward in 1977. She spent over 35 years doing what she loved – teaching. She dedicated her life to her “kids” – teaching, advising, mentoring, and coaching basketball, baseball, cheerleading and even football. Mom taught in the Richmond Unified School District for 12 years. In 1992, she moved to Greenfield, California to teach middle school and in 1999 transferred to Soledad High School where she retired in 2010.
Linda is survived by her children and their spouses, Barbara & Don Fleming, Brenda & Donald Dozier, Michelle Cisco and Anthony & Esperanza Randle, Sr., and siblings Russell Hagerty Jr. and Sue Wisbon and nephew, Shane Wisbon. She was predeceased by her parents Russell & Phyllis Hagerty, Sr.
Linda has a large family that she loved dearly.
Eleven grand kids: Trysha Mazzola (34), Joshua Dozier (31), Walter Cisco Jr. (30), Lisa Cisco (28), Anthony Randle Jr. (23), Kayla Cisco (22), Tatianna Randle (21), Nicole Dozier (19), Lacey Cisco (18), Donald Fleming (17), and Elijah Randle (7). She has seven great-grand babies: Makaii Cisco (11), Khaleb Canchola (9), Aalyiah Fatu (8), Walter Cisco III (6), Semaj Cisco (3), Kal-El Dozier (2) and Mason Mazzola (debut 2018).
We are forever greatful to her friends & loved ones that touched her life. Special thanks to Kayla Cisco, Jordan Oliviera, and Michelle Cisco for the care and kindness given to mom everyday.
