    Dan, Brent and family: Words cannot express how sorry I was to hear about the loss of your dear mother. Linda hired me at Baird Holm and took a leap of faith with me as I had not worked in ten years. I will be forever grateful to her and she will always hold a special place in my heart. You are in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.

    I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your mother, Dan & Brent. We worked together many, many years ago in Holdrege. I remember helping her move from her place in Alma. She taught me a lot when I was a young legal secretary. My husband and I double dated with her a couple of times with two different gentlemen friends of hers and always had a great time. She was a smart and giving person that I will always remember kindly as a fun, fun lady. She is smiling down on you boys. It makes me smile remembering the good times I had with her.

  • Nancy Harms Posted February 6, 2018 11:25 pm

    Please accept our deepest sympathy in your loss. Linda and I attended Holdrege High School at the same time and we also were members of Bethel. She was a beautiful person and always very caring and thoughtful. Cherish the memories of the special times you had together over the years. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during a very difficult time. Nancy Harms & Gerhart Wehrbein

    Linda was my very good friend during our school days in Holdrege. We shared many common interests and activities, from 4-H to girls’ quartet to good times at the lake. Most of all, I remember all the fun we had together! Though we saw each other only occasionally during our adult years, we always enjoyed our times together, and I admired the strong, caring, and accomplished woman she became. My deepest sympathy to Dan and Brent and the rest of the family. May your good memories bring you comfort and peace.

  • Mary Morris Frazer Posted February 7, 2018 9:52 am

    Such sad news. I have many great memories of our high school days. Linda was a creative, caring woman. Prayers are with the family.

  • Ginny Walker Posted February 7, 2018 9:21 pm

    I am so very sorry for your loss! Linda will always be special to me and have a very special place in my heart. She was the first person I interviewed with when applying for a job at Baird Holm, and her love for the Firm was so very apparent. I am so saddened by her loss and treasure the memories I have of her.

  • Connie Breuning Posted February 8, 2018 2:43 pm

    My condolences to Dan and Brent. Your mother and I became close friends at Baird Holm and I have fond memories of our fun times together. My sympathy and prayers to you.

  • Melodee Hauserman Posted February 9, 2018 6:54 am

    My deepest sympathy to Linda’s sons and family members. I fondly remember Linda from our days as
    students at Holdrege High School where we were both active in vocal music groups. She was talented, friendly and admired by fellow students and teachers.

  • Stephen Skog Posted February 9, 2018 3:09 pm

    Though it has been 20 years ago I am so sorry to hear of Linda’s passing. To me, she’ll always be the one I let go of instead of holding on to. She was the best.

  • Carol Miller Blauvelt Posted February 28, 2018 12:56 am

    Linda and I were friends since our 3 year old Sunday School class together at Bethel. And all the wonderful days of growing up together we had – confirmation, long Sunday afternoons playing Clue, 4-H, Supper Club, slumber parties, choir and band, and on and on. While our adult lives parted, when we occasionally saw each other, the connection was always there. Linda was ever a friend, considerate, gentle, and generous. And how she loved her two boys. May your memories salve a little the early parting. May you be with her again by and by.
