Linda May Beery Passed away unexpectedly on January 18, 2006. She was born November 16, 1936 in Oakland, CA to May and Clarence Ingersoll. Linda was a student in Oakland Public schools and graduated from Oakland High School in 1954. She also attended U.C. Berkeley. She married her high school sweetheart, John Beery in 1957 and had three children, Lisa, John and Connie. Linda was an avid volunteer and supporter of many charities and organizations. Her most cherished work was done at the Oakland Zoo. From Docent volunteer to Board President, Linda was a well known fixture at the Zoo. In recent years the things that brought Linda great pleasure were her two grandchildren, Kyle and Paige Krinks and her visits to San Diego with her cousins Suzanne and Lesley Stone. Linda was a great conversationalist and a good listener and will be missed by all who knew her. We invite you to join us in a celebration of her life on February 7, 2006 at the Pasta Pelican in Alameda from 4 to 7 p.m. For more information please contact Connie at 510-521-2727. In lieu of flowers Linda would have liked you to donate to the Oakland Zoo or the American Cancer Society.
