Linda was born in Arkansas City, Kansas to the late Ira R and Wilma Winesett. Linda lived a quiet life in Bland County working as a hairdresser for many years and later in life enjoyed her church and church family at Bastain Union Church. She proudly attended church until her health began to fail, but faithfully watched their livestream service until her death. Linda spent her time enjoying God’s most beautiful creations. She loved planting flowers, crocheting afghans for loved ones and strangers alike, visits with family that she deeply adored, and watching her grandchildren & great-grandchildren play and grow. She never kept a smile or a hug to herself and was known to share both with everyone she met. She is preceded in death by her parents Ira R and Wilma Winesett.
