Linda Gaylene King was born on June 15, 1943 in Omaha, Nebraska to Mathilte “Tillie” Harms Robinson. On February 5, 1944, she was lovingly adopted by her parents William B. and Gail (Thomas) King. She was raised in Elm Creek and later moved to Kearney where she attended Kearney Public Schools.

Linda was employed in Housekeeping for Good Samaritan Hospital in Kearney. She enjoyed church, Bible studies, reading her Bible, devotions, and other books. She also loved going to movies, watching movies and game shows, shopping, and Bingo. Most dearest to her was the time she spent with her friends. Linda also loved ice cream!

Those left to cherish her memory include her two nieces, Melinda Ratzlaff, and Carol Coffer; special friends, Galyn and Terri Lind, Dani Hemmer, and Dayna Phillips; along with her WEL-Life family and in recent years her Bethany Home family.

She was preceded in death by her parents, and one brother.
