Linda Carney

March 3, 1945 — November 27, 2020


Linda Kay Morgan Carney was called home on November 27, 2020.

She was born March 3, 1945, in San Diego CA, to William Loy and Wanda Wicker Morgan.

Upon Loy’s discharge from the navy, the family moved “home” to Texas in 1946 and to her final home of Arlington, in 1954.
She started her work life at Texas Instruments in 1962, during which time, she met and married the love of her life, Jack. She left T.I. upon the birth of her first child, in 1964. During her time, as a stay-at-home mother, she provided childcare, in the home, treating all children as her own. Always ensuring a hot lunch and even a short bible class was provided daily. She returned to the workforce in 1982 and served as the Textbook Supervisor, at The UTA Bookstore, for 29 years, until her retirement, in 2011. Unwilling to sit idle for long, she worked as the scheduling manager for the practice of Kevin Conner, MD until 2016, when she finally retired for good, to help care for her last grandchild, Jack.

She was a charter member of Hillcrest Church of Christ where she attended for over 60 years. She spent her time as a dedicated Sunday school teacher, Vacation Bible School coordinator, including Backyard Bible School , and most recently, bereavement co-chair.

As a mom, she served with the PTA board, as a room mother of no less than 15 rooms, and even carnival coordinator.

She had a talent for creating, from making a house a home, handmade clothing for her children, to Halloween costumes, and her priceless graduation quilts. Need a prom dress in 24 hours? No problem, she will be placing the final rose on the shoulder right on time.

Her cooking was well loved by everyone who tasted it and people would come from miles around for her German Chocolate and Chocolate Sheet cakes, or a plate of her homemade spaghetti.

Our mother was a servant. A servant of God and to others, always putting the needs of others before her own. Her servant's heart called her to help everyone and her daily steps were guided by how they would affect those around her. Whether it was caring for her children, her grandchildren, cooking for church members, making prizes for Jack’s classmates, or feeding the masses whenever the opportunity arose, she always had a project to do for someone. No matter how much, or how little, she always had enough to share, and she gave with all her heart.

Her love for her friends and family was her guiding force. She was her happiest when in the company of the people she loved. She always looked forward to her adventures with her sister/best friend LoJuan, her cousins Debi, Cathy, Vicki, and her Aunt Romie, including their monthly breakfasts, and travels to the family homestead, in Gatesville.

If she loved you, she probably had a special nickname for you, even if you did not know it. No matter how old you got, whether you liked it or not, those nicknames often stuck.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Loy and Wanda Morgan, her husband, Loma “Jack” Carney, and her infant daughter Carmen Quinn Carney.

She is survived by her loving children Shannon “Sissy” Giammarco and husband Peter, Kevin “Keecot” Carney and wife Seanna, Kimberly “Narfy Lou” Conner and husband Kevin, Derrek “Chicky Derry” Carney, Tonee “Boloney” Carney, and Brandon Loy “The Joy Boy” Carney, her grandchildren, Joey Giammarco, Corey Giammarco and fiancé Leigh, Patrick Burks and wife Cameran, Keith Carney and wife Whitney, Lauren Giammarco, Erika Carney, Madison DeVaun, Katelyn Carney, Emily Carney, and Jack Austin “Bunny Rabbit” Carney, Great Grandchild, Harper Mae Carney, as well as her sister LoJuan Dial and husband Marion, and brothers Randy Morgan and wife Laura, and Robert Morgan.

There will be a Celebration of Life on December 12, 2020, at 1 pm, at Hillcrest Church of Christ, Arlington TX.
