Linda Sue Mader
November 7, 1942–June 26, 2018

Linda Sue Mader, 75, of Sweet Home, Oregon passed away Tuesday, June 26. She was born in Angels Camp, California to Dewey and Alberta (Roberts) Gearin.

She spent her childhood in Oregon before moving Porterville, California, where she graduated from high school. She remained in California, but relocated to Big Creek when she got married. She stayed in the mountain area living in Auberry and working as the secretary to the principal at Sierra High School for 18 years until her retirement in 1993. After retiring, she made her home in Sweet Home at Log Cabin Apple Farm.

She was an active member of St. Helen Catholic Church and PEO. She was a friend to many. 

Linda Sue Mader



She enjoyed gardening, fishing, golfing, snow and water skiing, and snorkeling. RV traveling and barbeques with family and friends were some of her favorite pastimes. She loved traveling to Hawaii (Maui), Canada, Europe, Ireland, Solomon Islands, Fiji, New Guinea and Mexico. She also enjoyed sewing, crafts, entertaining, and making stained glass. Christmas-time was her favorite season. She decorated every room in her house with a Christmas tree and decorations. During her spare time, she would organize wreath-making and do an annual Christmas Tree Cut.

Linda is survived by her loving husband of 47 years, Harold C. Mader, daughter Annette Lehman, and granddaughter Marissa Lehman—all of Sweet Home.

Recitation of the Rosary will be at 10:30 a.m. Friday, July 20, at St. Helen Catholic Church. Memorial services will follow at 11:00 a.m.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made to the American Cancer Association or PEO chapter FA.
