Linda Sue Alumbaugh

Linda Sue Cagle Alumbaugh departed this life on August 20, 2021, at the age of 78. Linda was born June 13, 1943, in Muskogee, Oklahoma, to Owen Buddy Cagle and Beatrice Jane Adams. She and her older sister Peggy Jean were also surrounded by love from grandparents, aunts, and uncles as a child growing up in eastern Oklahoma. This early loving experience launched her lifelong devotion and compassion to serve others the rest of her life.Linda married the love of her life, Dr. Max Lynn Alumbaugh, who departed this life on January 30, 2004. She often expressed with excitement the day she would join her parents and husband in Heaven and retold memories of them daily. Many of her closest family members actually witnessed their amazing reunion. Linda and Max moved their family to Stigler, Oklahoma in 1969 following Max's graduation from medical school. Linda enjoyed everything about living and raising her family in Haskell County. She served many years on the Stigler School Board. She and Max donated to the construction and the land for the home of St. Joseph's Catholic Church in Stigler. They also proudly sponsored refugees from Vietnam that relocated to eastern Oklahoma. She was steadfastly faithful and devoted to the Lord. Despite facing some extremely difficult challenges, Linda always remained faithful, courageous, calm, and positive. Linda was loved by all who met her. She spoke to each of her five daughters daily. Her love, kindness, and advice will be greatly missed. Linda had a passion and incredible instinct for horses – especially, breeding Quarter racehorses. Linda started her horse business, MLA International, with one winning mare. She attended Colorado State University to learn all she could about artificial insemination, and mare and stallion breeding management. According to Linda, mare quality and performance make up 70 percent of the end result of a champion breeding operation. Linda earned many honors including 2007 American Quarter Horse Racing Champion Breeder.Linda is survived by her daughters, Mindi Renee Reavis (and spouse Terry of Bixby), Michelle Lynn King (and spouse Kenny of Moore), Melinda Sue Jones (of Owasso), Melissa Ann Holt (and spouse LaWayne of Greenwood, AR), and Melanie Marie Weddle (and spouse Charles of Edmond). She is survived by her brother-in-law Dale Alumbaugh (and spouse Debbie and their children Taylor and Alyssa), and brother-in-law Joe Woodbridge (and spouse Karen and niece Jodi Trook). She is also survived by her grandchildren, Lindsay Spriggs (and spouse Kevin and their children Campbell, and Cannon), Kristin Thompson (and spouse Gavin and their daughter Gentry), Lauren Engles (and spouse Dillon and their children Aiden, Carson, and Landon), Kyle King (and spouse Megan and their children Everett and Crosby), Malorie Alumbaugh (and her daughter Camden and Natalie), Meighan Lovelace (and spouse Mark and children Marley and Mace), Kellen King, Brett Reavis, Kenyon King, Jessica Craig (and spouse Zach), Kaden Goodwin (and spouse Alyssa and their daughter Elle), Sarah Jones, Rachel Jones, Kale Goodwin, Charlie Weddle, and many cousins, nieces, nephews, and friends (especially Carolyn, Lee, Kathy, Sybil, Billie, and Judy). She was preceded in death by her parents, sister Peggy, sister-in-law Gaynell Woodbridge, nephew Spencer Alumbaugh, and her beloved Frenchie, Bella. The family would like to again express Linda's utmost gratitude to Dr. Brian Geister and his entire staff for their loving care.
