Linda  Bounds
Linda Margaret (Mahan) Bounds passed away in the early morning of May 17, 2016, in Mineral Wells after a courageous battle with cancer.
Family and friends are invited to join in a celebration of Linda's life 3-6 p.m. Sunday, May 29, at the Graford Lions Club.
Linda was born April 3, 1950, to Orbie Aldo and Margaret Sarah Mahan in Midland. Although her journey through life brought her to many places in Texas, Mineral Wells was where she grew up and the place she called home. Linda was proud to be part of a large, devoted family with two brothers and five sisters, each of whom she held close to her heart.
Linda held many roles throughout her life including seamstress, cook, caregiver and friend. She always had a smile on her face, always had something to say, and was the life of the party wherever she went. She loved spending time with her family and friends, watching her grandkids play sports, and she never passed up a chance to go out dancing.
Linda had her first son, Dirk Lee, in 1967. She married William Earl Bounds in 1978 and became a stepmother to four boys, Steve, Billy, Riley and Larry; and three girls, Tammie, Lisa and Michelle. She and William had a son in 1979, William, who they called Bubba, and a daughter, Brandy, in 1982. She loved her children dearly, though nothing brought a twinkle to her eye the way her grandkids and great-grandkids did.
She is survived by her sons, Dirk Lee and wife Dana, of Millsap, Will Bounds and wife Sue, of Graford, Steve Bounds and wife Connie, of Mineral Wells, Billy Bounds and wife Kim, of Mineral Wells, and Larry Bounds of Merkel, Texas; daughters, Brandy Hutchins and husband Brian of Lipan, Tammie Breazeale, of Gainesville, Texas, Lisa Hail and husband Jerry, of Dallas, and Michelle Hobbs of Albany, Texas; sisters, Mary Ann Vincent, Ada Fowler, Edith Fay Taylor and husband Doug, Teresa Smith and husband Mike, Wanda Boggus and husband Cliff Wright, and brother Rocky Mahan and wife Chris; 28 grandchildren; two great-grandchildren; and countless friends.
She was preceded in death by her parents; her brother, Howard Mahan; her husband, William, in 2010; and a son, Riley Bounds.
