Linda Lee (Walline) Foulon was born to Leland Louis Walline and Mary Euvon Crowl March 3, 1944 in Medford, Ore. In 1963 she married Edward Ray Foulon, her loving husband of over 50 years. Together they had five children, of which their second child, "Little Ray", was born prematurely and survived only four days. They had three other sons and a daughter.
They lived in several places throughout the Rogue Valley but eventually settled in Sams Valley in 1974. They lived there the rest of her life and it was there that she truly felt at home. It was at their country ranch, overlooking her ½ acre garden that she loved so much, surrounded by her family, that she passed away, finally at peace now after a seven year battle with cancer. When she first received the diagnosis she refused to give in: she decided to fight, and fight she did. She proved to everyone during this battle that she was braver, stronger, and more determined than any of us knew. Through this long, enduring battle she became a hero to her family and friends. Her strong will helped her courageously beat the cancer twice, only to find out each time that the cancer had returned. In mid-January of this year she received the devastating news that it was back for the third time. On March 18, 2014 just two weeks after her 70th birthday, God called her home.
Linda is survived by her husband, Ray; her brother, Calvin; four children, Monte, Armon'e, Monique, and Jory; nine grandchildren; and one great-grandchild. She was preceded in death by her mother, Mary Euvon Reaves; son, Edward Ray Foulon Jr.; and granddaughter, Natasha Foulon.
In her honor, a Memorial/Celebration of Life service will be held at 1:00 p.m. July 5, 2014 at the Foulon Ranch in Sams
