Linda (Lindy) Frances Brower

Linda (Lindy) Frances Brower, a loving mother and grandmother, passed away peacefully on Saturday Jan. 17, 2015.

Born on Sept. 1, 1951 in Great Lakes, Ill., she and her parents, Walt and Gloria Palmer, along with her sister Debbie, relocated to Cathey’s Valley when Lindy was one. Lindy was a resident of Cathey’s Valley ever since attending school there and going on to graduate from Mariposa County High School.

Lindy worked as a jail officer at the Mariposa County Sheriff’s Office for 22 years and retired in 2010. Since her retirement, she had been very active in the community, helping start the Hornitos 4-H club. She was the treasurer of the Hornitos Patrons Club, supported the Merced Elks Lodge and helped wherever she was needed.

Lindy loved spending time with her three grandchildren. She would always take them to their sporting events, 4-H club meetings, or just pick them up to spend quality grandma time with them. It was one of her favorite things to do. Lindy also loved the big family get-togethers during the holidays. She loved spoiling her grandkids and her dog, Mhily.

Lindy was preceded in death by her parents, Walt and Gloria Palmer, her brother Gary Palmer, her infant son Gary Brower, maternal grandparents Chet and Linda Guenthart, paternal grandparents Herbert and Frances Palmer and brother-in-law Fred Lester.

Lindy leaves behind her loving son, Heath Brower, his wife, Glenda Brower, and her grandchildren Dalton, Khily, and Khiera Brower. She is also survived by her brother and his wife Walt (Sonny) and Annette Palmer, her sister Debbie Lester and many nieces and nephews.

Lindy was greatly loved and will be missed by all of her family and friends. She has touched many lives.

A graveside service will be held on Saturday, Jan. 31 at 11 a.m. at the Cathey’s Valley Cemetery. A reception at the Cathey’s Valley McCay Hall will follow. Please join us in the celebration of her wonderful life.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Hornitos 4-H Club, P.O. Box 419, Hornitos, CA 95325 or the Merced Elks Lodge, 1910 M Street, Merced, CA 95340, in care of Mariposa Youth Activities.
