Linda Ann (Johnston Utz) Reinhold

Jan. 1949 – Dec. 2020

Linda Ann (Johnston Utz) Reinhold, 71, of Turlock passed away peacefully at her home on December 18, 2020.

Linda was born January 23, 1949 to Joseph and Annie Johnston in Birmingham, Alabama. She grew up most of her life in Keyes, California and later in Denair, California. She dedicated most of her life to caring for those unable to care for themselves. For over 40 years she could be seen in the halls caring for guests at one of the local assisted care facilities in Turlock. She had a laugh that was infectious and would always put a smile on someone’s face.

Linda’s greatest joy was being a mother, grandmother and great grandmother. She was fiercely protective of her family and graciously loving as well. She enjoyed baking and could always be found playing games on her computer or phone. Her quiet love will forever be missed!

Linda was preceded in death by her parents Joseph (1990) and Annie (2007), and her sister Carolyn Johnston (2009) and brother James Johnston (2019). She is survived by her husband Bradley Reinhold of Turlock; her children Kenneth Utz, Jr. (Patty) of Denair, Richard Utz (Amber) of Modesto, CA, Jennifer (Utz) Langston (Joel) of Henrietta, TX and Cindy Utz of Saint Hedwig, TX; siblings include Diane Wright, Marsha Price, and David Johnston all of Alabama; 11 grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren.

Flowers and condolences may be sent in remembrance to 5117 Hillsdale Dr. Denair, CA 95316

    I love you so much Mom. We are going to miss you more than words can say. Your beautiful smile, your caring words, your loving touch and the love in your voice when you’d say, “I love you baby”.
    Thank you for raising me right, it made me who I am today.
    You’re in the lords hands now, rest peacefully, we have it from here.
    I love you Mom.

    I will miss you beyond words can explain. It was an honor to know a woman of such strength and unconditional love and one thing I can promise is that I will take care of your son, just as you would want. I love you Linda and will always be sure to carry your strength throughout my life. Rest in peace. This is not goodbye, but… until we see each other again. xoxoxo

    I could never believe how lucky I was to have you as a mother in law! You always treated me and my children with so much love and welcomed us into your family with open arms. We miss your laughter and your smiles already. I still can’t wrap my head around the fact that I will never see your beautiful face and now I will never learn to make your great Turkey and Ham gravy. I love you and will see you again ❤️

    I can’t believe you are gone. I get up every morning waiting for my phone to ding just so I can see your text telling me “good morning, love you” as you have done every day. I am going to miss everything about you, your smile, your laugh, even your stubbornness. I was blessed to be raised by a caring woman with such a loving heart. I can still hear these words “mom’s gonna go now, I love you baby” and my pain is so deep. I’ll love you forever mom!

    I still can’t believe your gone. I find myself waiting for that good morning text, Good morning I love you! I am the woman I am today because of you. I’ve carried this reservation with me for many years however I’ve grown so much and now is the time to help my family. I can say you would be so proud of Randy and the man he is today. My life will never be the same without you. I’m so grateful you were my mother. I can still here you say I’m going f to bed I love you baby……I’m so lost for words I’m sure this doesn’t make sense but I also know you loved me beyond words. Until we meet again.
