Linda Moorehead: A Life Well-Lived

Linda Carleen Holt Moorehead, a woman of boundless love and ceaseless wanderlust, passed away peacefully in her sleep at home in Houston, TX on Tuesday, May 14th, at the age of 80. 

She started her journey in this world in Vivian, LA, in 1943, as her parents and family were from Vivian and Northeast Texas. From these humble beginnings, Linda’s life blossomed into a vibrant tapestry of adventure, family, and cherished memories. In her youth, Linda moved from Vivian, LA, to Brownsville, TX to Alvin, TX, and later Minden, LA. Linda was a proud member of the Minden High School class of 1961. After marrying James Marshal Moorehead that same year, they settled in Seattle, WA, followed by moves to Media, PA and New Orleans, LA. Linda & James later propelled across the globe, residing in 6 countries across five continents. After returning Stateside, they resettled in New Orleans, LA. Hurricane Katrina relocated them to Houston, TX, where they lived for a few years before deciding to retire back home to Minden, LA.

Linda’s passions were as varied as the places she called home. An avid traveler, she found solace in exploring the world’s wonders, capturing precious moments through her lens and preserving family history through genealogy and scrapbooking. Her warm and welcoming demeanor endeared her to all who crossed her path, and her love knew no bounds. Following the same passion as her brother Don, music held a special place in Linda’s heart.  She loved her years working for Boeing and later for Welcome Wagon.

Linda is survived by her devoted husband of 63 years, James Moorehead, her loving children, Michael Moorehead of Houston, TX, and Tara Seabra of Seminole, Florida, along with her four cherished grandchildren, Trystan, Justin, Jeffrey and Peter. Her memory will forever be treasured by her beloved cousins as well as numerous nieces and nephews and friends.

Preceding Linda in death are her father, Ernest Carl Holt, her mother, Clara Essie Holt, her older brothers, Don & Edward Holt and her furry children Tuppy, Tufty, Chiri, Taz, Moo and Missy.

Friends and family are invited to pay their respects during a visitation on Friday, May 24, from 6:30 to 8:30 PM at Rose Neath Funeral Home in Minden, LA.  A celebration of Linda’s life will be held on Saturday, May 25 there at 10:00 AM. Linda will be laid to rest at Minden Cemetery.
