Linda Denise McCloud

Sunrise: August 31, 1957

Sunset: March 25, 2019

On March 25, 2019, our beloved Linda D. McCloud, 61, born August 31, 1957, to the late Linwood Arps and Geraldine Arps, transitioned to her eternal Estate. She was predeceased by her cherished son, Myquan D. McCloud. LINDA “NESIE” ARPS
was a loving mother, grandmother, daughter, sister, aunt, and dear friend. Linda attended the Stop Organization Nursing Program, in which she obtained a Geriatric Nursing Assistant Certification. However, during her latter years, she would succumb to various obstacles and challenges, which led to compromising health issues. Unfortunately, these occurrences would lead to her early retirement. Her favorite pastimes included: spending time with her family (especially her grandchildren), delectable meals, and just the simple pleasures of life. Blessedly, to be absent from the flesh, is to be present with Our Heavenly Father… you’ve gained your angelic wings and our LOVE for YOU FOREVER REMAINS…TODAY… TOMORROW…FOREVER!!!

She leaves to esteem her legacy and memories: grandmother: Geraldine Snead; mother: Geraldine Arps; one daughter:
Yolanda Arps; two sons: DeAngelo “Bola” Arps, Sr., and  Perry “Tink” Lee; godson: Trenton Moore; granddaughters: Shaqualia Norwell, Abigail and Emani Arps, Darnisha, Nashiyah, Parrish, Anaija, Tionna (Lee sisters), Zaniyah and Zamoni McCloud; grandsons: Tione Lee and DeAngelo Arps, Jr.; sisters: Mechelle Lee, Jo-Jo Arps, Lorna Faulkner, and Gail Reid; brother: Linwood Lee; nephews: Antoine “Dink” Arps and Rashid Arps; nieces: Jojuana Diggs; great niece: Trenashia Williams and Tazyla Arps; great-nephew: Tycear Arps and Caleb Arps; son-in-law: Dewayne Hodges; daughters-in-law: Alexandra McNeil, Kai Arps; and an extended host of relatives (cousins, and friends).
