Linda Kay Gaines-White was born May 19, 1959 in Lawton, Oklahoma to Willie and Nona Toy Gaines. She was the second child born to this union. Linda attended Lawton Public Schools beginning at Bishop Elementary School. After completion she attended McArthur Junior High and ultimately graduated in the class of 1977. Linda was the mother of Kevin Gaines and Kenneth Cooper. If anyone knew her, they would know that she loved her boys and their families with all her heart and never ceased to tell of their accomplishments.
This phenomenal woman loved to travel and spend time with her family and friends. It would take a lifetime to describe all that Linda was, but she was a sweet spirit that always had a quick wit and a personality was larger than life itself. She will forever be remembered as a mother, sister, aunt, grandmother, great-grandmother, and a friend.
She leaves to forever cherish her memory, her sons Kevin (Shaneequa) Gaines of Lancaster, TX and Kenneth (Anayai) Cooper of Muskogee, OK. 7 grandkids; KeVaughn, Kendyl, Kylie, Ja’Colbe, Ja’Corie, Nia, and Kennedy and one great-granddaughter, Sanaa.
