Obituary for Linda S. Brown

Linda Sue (Prine) Brown passed away on May 6, 2019, after a sudden illness. She was born in Craig County, Oklahoma on December 16, 1945 to Edgar and Beatrice (Yost) Prine. She was raised on a farm outside of Blue Jacket, where she graduated from high school in 1963. She attended her beloved Oklahoma State University, working her way through and succeeding not only because of her intelligence and hard work, but out of sheer determination. She graduated in 1967 from OSU and remained in Stillwater, working for the University for several years after. She eventually moved to Oklahoma City, where she worked primarily as an accountant in the oil and gas industry. In 1985, she entered Oklahoma City University Law School, graduating in 1989. She worked at several law firms in Oklahoma City and finished her legal career at the office of the Attorney General in 2011. She purchased a house on Oklahoma Keystone Lake, where, true to her word, she gardened, knitted, read books and fished. She also worked in the literacy program with the Tulsa City-County Library System, teaching many pupils to read and write.
Linda was predeceased by her parents, and is survived by her sister Judy Spaulding of Welch, sister and brother-in-law, Debbie and Don Horn of Chelsea, step-daughter Trisha Carmichael of Phoenix, AZ, beloved nieces and nephews Marcia, Todd, Melissa, Will and Marissa, and her cat, Vinnie. Linda’s friends and family will celebrate her life on Friday, May 10, 2019, at 3 p.m., at Burckhalter-Highsmith Funeral Home Chapel in Vinita, Oklahoma, with Pastor Andrew Haire. The family asks that donations be made in Linda’s name to the Tulsa City County Library literacy program, the food bank of your choice or the Tulsa Animal Welfare Shelter. Arrangements are by Vinita’s only locally owned funeral establishment, the Burckhalter-Highsmith Funeral and Cremation Service.
