Resided in: Indianapolis, Indiana

Linda Sue (Utterback) Hale, 71, of Indianapolis, Indiana was called to her heavenly home on Monday, May 1, 2023, surround by her loving family and friends.  She was born June 15, 1951, to the late Charles and Mildred Utterback, and her birth mother Fern Hockersmith.

Linda enjoyed laughing and having a good time with her family and friends. Her favorite movies were horror films.  She had a very soft spot in her heart for animals. Linda was a born-again Christian who gave her life to the Lord and was baptized.

Left to cherish her memories are her children; Dawn Reynolds, Katina Horswill, Tony Sanders, Kenny (Connie) Hale, Cindy Hale and Dennis Hale, sibling; Farrell, April, Robert, Carol, Margaret, Patty, Raymond, Ricky, Rosie, and Jerry, twenty grandchildren, sixteen great grandchildren and many loving extended family and friends.  We can’t forget Linda’s favorite child and her baby, her chocolate Lab – Bo. Her children would attest that Bo was perfect and could do no wrong in her eyes.

She was preceded in death by her parents Charles and Mildred Utterback, Fern Hockersmith, siblings, Saundra, Billy, Wesley, Jimmy, and the LOVE of her life, her husband Jack Hale.

Services will be held on Friday, May 5, 2023, with visitation beginning at 1230p until time of funeral service at 330p.

Linda will be placed at Lincoln Memory Gardens with her late husband Jack, at a later date.
