Linda Marie Gimbel

July 03, 1970 - October 31, 2014


Linda Marie Sachs-Gimbel, age 44 of San Clemente CA. died on Oct 31, 2014. She was born to Robert and Rita Sue Armitage Sachs on July 3rd, 1970 in Anaheim, California.

Linda graduated from Foothill High School in 1988 after which she began her career in the financial industry where she made a name for herself and had a very successful career.

Linda was a rare and special person and it was evident from the moment you met her. She had a multitude of friends and an ability to extend herself to others. She took great care in the nurturing of her friendships. Linda was not only a beautiful person on the outside, but was incredibly beautiful on the inside. She radiated kindness, intelligence and great wit. She had a wonderful sense of humor and an infectious laugh. Her friends were naturally drawn into her jokes or her silly voice of the moment.

Above all else, Linda’s greatest accomplishments were her two children, Olivia and Max; they were her pride and joy! Whether giving airplane rides or dancing throughout the house, she was always at her happiest when she was with her kids.

Linda is survived by her two children Olivia Jule Gimbel, 13 and Maximillian Edward Gimbel, 7; mother Sue Sachs; father Robert Sachs; brother Rob Sachs; his wife Timi Jo; sister Leigh Ann Sachs Elledge; her husband Cliff; nephew Matthew; and 3 nieces Reilly, Kelsey and Kendall.

A memorial service will be held in her honor at Corpus Christi Catholic-Christian Church, Aliso Viejo, Saturday November 15th, viewing at 1:30, service at 2:00.

    While I only had the pleasure of meeting Linda once, I must say her smile was radiant. The love between Leigh Ann and Linda was evident, my heart breaks for those left behind. I pray for strength, wisdom and guidance for all. With love, Geralyn

  2. met Linda at a low point in my life and during a time where I had experienced a lot of loss, including the loss of custody of my two beautiful little girls. I was invited to live with Linda and her family as I tried to rebuild my life. Linda immediately, and quite lovingly, took on the role of a friend, sister and even mother at times. I have many fond memories of our time spent together. Linda took me shopping to help me dress professionally as I ventured out to find a job, she did my hair for my job interviews, she invited me to spend Thanksgiving with her family, she provided me with Christmas presents to give to my children because I had nothing to give. She even had Christmas presents for me under her tree. This is Linda. This is the Linda I knew. A caring, loving person. I have so many memories of her kindness and generosity in my life but the memory that stands out the most is this: I had a court appt which would determine if I could begin to see my daughters again. It was not looking good for me. And then, unexpectedly, there she was, in court, advocating for me. She took the stand to speak on my behalf and to speak of my character. She even offered to be my “monitor” if the courts would allow me monitored visitation, which they did and to which Linda sacrificed her time for several months to monitor so that I could see my babies. I remember asking her why she came to court that day and she said she was at work and it was just heavy on her heart that she had to be there for me.
    After getting full custody back and as I tried to make a new home for our little family of 3, nearly everything I own today in my home once belonged to her, gifted to me.

    I can hardly accept that you are really gone my sweet friend Linda. Your friendship to me was far too short, but your impact in my life will forever be remembered.

    In loving memorandum,
