In memory of
Linda K. Russell Haselton
5/3/1933 - 2/9/2021 Strength and integrity are her clothing, and she smiles at the future (Prov. 31:25) Solomon's words are the summation of Linda Haselton's life. Linda was born to Robert A. and Faye Russell in Huntington Park, California. She grew up on the beach in Sunset Beach, California and developed an early love of horses. By the time she was a young teenager, Linda was an accomplished equestrian competing at both the local and state level in barrel racing and gymkhana. She met her husband, Jim Haselton, during a local equestrian event. They married in December 1950 and Jim went off to serve in Korea. Linda graduated from Huntington Beach High School in June 1951. After having her three children, Linda started college, obtaining an AA from Santa Ana Community College and a BA from California State University, Long Beach. She immediately started her career in education in the Westminster School District. Linda was a passionate and devoted elementary school teacher, mostly teaching combination classes. Her pursuit of excellence was recognized by her students, parents and peers, and Linda was selected Teacher of Year early in her career. Linda and Jim retired and relocated to Montana, where she started assisting with the local schools when not riding Mr. T, her beloved horse. Linda (and Mr. T) moved to Blythe, California where she resurrected her education career, teaching at the local junior high school. Once again, she received the Teacher of the Year award in a few short years. Linda retired again, but remained active in the community, serving her church, local non-profits and the CA Women of Agriculture helping with school farms. Although Alzheimer's robbed Linda of her memory over the past several years, she continued to lead with her heart, always being a blessing to those around her at her last residence, Rowntree Gardens (Stanton, CA). Linda was preceded in death by her parents and her eldest son, James F Haselton. She leaves behind many who loved her and will miss her. Her son, Frank (Sandra) Haselton, her daughter, Debbie (John) Maltby, daughter-in-law, Kathy Haselton, grandchildren, Melisa (Dennis) Spangler, Abbie (Peter) Hilton, Mark (Amie) Haselton, John (Jennifer) Maltby II, Audra (Tim) Sampson, Scott (Erin) Haselton, Patrick Haselton, Traci (Robert) Haselton Sarmiento and 18 great grandchildren with 1 more on the way! Should you wish to honor Linda, we respectfully ask that you make a donation to Rowntree Gardens, 12151 Dale Street, Stanton, CA 90680. A memorial service will be held on March 13, 2021 at the First Baptist Church, Blythe, CA.
