Linda R Trollinger

June 15, 1946 — February 11, 2023

Siloam Springs, Arkansas

 

Linda Ruth Trollinger, 76, of Siloam Springs, passed away Saturday, February 11, 2023, at the Earlene Howard Circle of Life Hospice Home in Springdale.

 

Linda was born on June 15, 1946, in Roswell, New Mexico. She was a daughter of John Hudson and Cledith Mae Stacey Hudson. She married the love of her life, Franklin “Tooter” Leroy Trollinger, on January 10, 1975, who preceded her in death in January 2022.

 

Linda was a vital part of Franklin Electric spending over 15 years working her way from an assembly worker to a supervisor.  After retiring you could find Linda on Grand Lake with her husband and a fishing pole catching her favorite thing, catfish.  When Linda wasn’t on the lake, she was cooking up some wonderful meal at home for her loving family, most likely the catfish that was just caught, or making quilts for her six grandchildren.  She now has full mobility in her hands and can make as many extravagant quilts as her little heart desires or reel in the biggest fish she will ever catch.  

 

She is preceded in death by her parents, John and Cledith Hudson; one son Harold Happy; two brothers Tom and Johnny Hudson, and her loving husband of 46 years Franklin Trollinger.

 

She is survived by one son, Paul Happy and wife Marla of Gentry, AR; one daughter, Karla Happy and husband Scott Martin of Springdale, AR; daughter-in-law, Candi Lawrence of Colcord, OK; four brothers, Roy Hudson of Fayetteville, AR,  Steve Hudson of Prairie Grove, AR, J.C. Hudson of Westfork, AR, and Carol Hudson of Hogeye, AR; two sisters, Jo Ann Leeders of Springdale, AR, and Beverly Leach of Prairie Grove, AR;  brother-in-law and sister-in-law, Joe and Debbie Trollinger; 3 Grandsons: Kenley Happy and wife Amelia of Wichita Falls, TX, Jonathan Happy of Gentry, AR, and Cody Harrelson and wife Alexis of Springdale, AR.  3 Granddaughters: Briana Horne and husband Weston of Hot Springs, AR, Keely Harrelson and Phillip Price of Springdale, AR, and Taleah Harrelson and Ethan Murphree of Springdale, AR.  6 Great Grandchildren: Hannah Happy, Stella Ferguson, Carter Harrelson, Henry Happy, Lincoln Horn, and Harlin Happy.  As well as 2 bonus members: Brittany, and Morgan.
