Sims, Linda H.; 64, formerly of Lake Orion
Linda Haines Sims went to be with our Lord on May 9, 2019 after fighting a courageous battle with leukemia.  She was 64-years-old. Linda was a resident of Leesburg, Florida, and former resident of Lake Orion and Hadley, Michigan.  She was the cherished wife of Mark Sims for 43 years, and an amazing mother to Lindsay and Kelly (Larry) Plummer.  Linda loved being a grandmother, and leaves behind Jacob, Josh, and Sydney Plummer, and Emily Davis.  She was the sister of Joseph Haines III and Karen (Gary) Vollen, and Marlene Haines, who was her caretaker and sister.  She will be greatly missed by her sisters-in-law LuAnn (Dennis) Churchill, Cheryl (Dennis) Mahan, and Carol (Charles) Hanning, and her mother-in-law Jeanette Frady.
Linda was a 1972 graduate of Lake Orion High School and an employee at the Lake Orion Farmer Jack for 35 years.  She was also a member of the Leesburg, Florida Eagles.  She loved watching her husband Mark play softball and was always his biggest cheerleader.   Linda loved to play pickleball and she and Mark liked to take camping trips with their grandchildren and their dog, Hank.  Linda loved playing cards with her Florida friends.  She was a selfless woman who loved her family and her friends above herself, but above all else, she loved Jesus.  When she was in Michigan, she was a regular attendant of the River Church in Goodrich.
There will be a celebration of her life on June 1, at 1:00 p.m., with refreshments to follow at the River Church, 9430 Perry Rd., Goodrich, MI 48438.

    I will miss her so very much. Always patient and kind. A loving friend to all knew her. Someone who you could always depend on. I was so looking forward retiring this year and Debbi, and I enjoying many years with her and Mark on the lake, ball field or pickle ball court. Truly one of the most wonderful person I have or will ever know on this earth. I hope there is pickle ball in heaven, and pray someday to see her on the court.

    Mark, tried calling you, have you turned your phone off. Not a problem, just wanted you to know I have been thinking about what you are going through. Call me if I can help. Hugs, Tricia Hayward.

    Dear mark and girls,
    Linda was so nice to me as a kid, and I will forever remember how kind she was to me when my dad was sick. My heart is heavy for all of you. Mark I know you and Linda were such a good team together. I hope all of your memories will give you comfort during this time.

    Linda was a beautiful woman inside and out. She always had a smile. She was taken too soon. God must have needed a special angel.
    Hugs and love to all of you.
