Obituary

Linda Marie Woodward Ornles, 73, of Boonville lost her fight with cancer and peacefully passed away April 25, 2022 at her home.

Visitation for Linda will be Saturday 4/30/22 from 3:00pm to 4:00pm at Boonville Church of Christ. Memorial service will begin at 4:00pm.

Linda was born November 20, 1948 the daughter of Kenneth H. Woodward Sr. and Myrtle Ethel (Morin) Woodward in Watertown, New York. She married Max Ornles September 8, 1973 in California, MO. Her daughter, Becky Jo was born June 9, 1976 and was the light of her life. Linda worked at Matco in Boonville, then Artex until they closed. Linda was an amazing mother, grandma, great-grandma, and dog mom to her beloved Beretta. She loved playing bingo and singing karaoke. She also enjoyed crafting and crocheting. Decorating for holidays brought her joy, especially at Christmas time. She loved family dinners and always made enough food for an army. Linda’s battle with cancer began 18 years ago. Throughout those years she had many struggles, but with her strong will,  stubbornness, New York attitude, and fighting spirit she never gave up. No matter her pain or exhaustion, she was always smiling. One thing for sure, she was not a quitter. Her family and friends gave her the strength to keep going. She was very proud of her family. 

Linda is preceded in death by her parents, brother Kenneth Woodward II, twin brother/sister Thomas (deceased at birth) and Margaret (3 days old), great nephew Jonny Neujan, and great niece Tia Sargent. She is survived by her husband Max, daughter Becky (Jeff) Keeran of Boonville, brother Robert (Sandy) Woodward of New York, sister-in-law Sandy Woodward of New York, granddaughters Caylin (Cody Phillips) Marriott of Boonville  Broklyn (Brantley) Edwards of Boonville Ryleigh Keeran of Boonville, great grandchildren Paxton, Xander, Maelee, and Copelyn, her “adopted” family Kaitlyn Clark-Bohannon of Boonville, Jennifer Sell of Boonville Vaughn & Carolyn Sell of Boonville Jeremiah Ingham of Arkansas, long time friend Martha Schultz of Boonville, many nieces and nephews and friends.
