Linda R. Graveen passed away peacefully in the arms of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on December 19, 2022.
Linda Rhea Canada was born November 17, 1949, in Chicago, Illinois, she was the first of four children of Ray and Lucille Canada. Linda graduated from Wheaton North High School in 1967 and later attended Murray State University in Kentucky where she graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Business.
While in high school Linda was a cheerleader and enjoyed acting and singing in different plays and musicals. She was an avid bowler, in addition to playing the violin and accordion. In her early years she worked as a flight attendant for Delta. While living in Garnett, Linda made many acquaintances through her work at Alco, Mr. D's and later at Casey's. She loved being able to greet and talk to her customers. Linda had a heart for others and she never forgot a birthday or missed an opportunity to be a blessing to others no matter how little she may have had at the time. Linda was married in 1970 and had one daughter, Amanda. She loved spending time with her family, spoiling her grandkids, watching Hallmark movies with Corky (her dog) and drinking coffee. After a major stroke in 2019, Linda retired (reluctantly) and became a resident at Parkview Heights Care Center where she was loved and cared for until the end. Her aides and nurses became part of her extended family. Linda was a wonderful big sister, loving mother and the best grandmother. She was loved by all.
Linda was preceded in death by her father Ray Canada.
