Linda Lea Beach

Linda Lea Beach

Entered eternal life on Wednesday February 11th 2021.  Born and raised in the farming community of Kensington, Kansas to Augustus Clare and Dorothy Abbott Beach on April 26, 1940. Her spirit is carried on by her son and daughter in law,  Brian and Laura Beach; her three grandsons: Colin Beach and his wife Addie,  Connor Beach and Aidan Beach;  her three siblings: Craig Beach and his wife Margaret, Curtis Beach and his wife Mary, and Lynette Sprague and her husband Randy; and an extended family of relations and friends from every walk of life.

She graduated from Kensington High School in 1958 and immediately went to business school in Omaha, Nebraska. After school she went to work at Mutual Of Omaha from 1960 thru 1999. At the time of her retirement, she had worked her way up to First VP of Human Resources.

She independently raised one son, Brian, who believed he was the original latch-key kid.  She was a lifetime member of the Society of Human Resource Management, as well as being active in the Human Resource Association of the Midlands. She served on the Board of directors of the YWCA and Mutual 1st Credit Union. She volunteered and supported the Joslyn Art Museum, Boy/Girl Scouts, and the YWCA.

Linda loved flowers, birds, trees, and the mystery of the sun, moon, and the stars. She loved music poetry and murder mysteries. She loved to instill in her grandchildren her joy and delight in nature’s beauty and the quirkiness of humankind.

Linda was a woman with incomparable warmth, an irresistible smile, genuine humility, and remarkable courage. Without fail she found the good in people and brightened the days of all who knew her.

MEMORIAL SERVICE: Thursday, February 18th at 2:00 pm at Bethany Lutheran Church (4200 North 204th Street, Elkhorn, NE) with visitation starting at 1:00pm.

    Linda and I became team members in the ‘80’s, my boss in the. 90’s and dear friends ever since. I was broken hearted to hear of her passing. Linda had a major positive impact on so many lives, and was always interested in the best for others. Linda was so close to her family, and readily shared wonderful stories about her siblings, son Brian, daughter in-law Laura, and of course her sweet grandsons. I know she will be greatly missed by all. Nadine Ries

    Sorry about the loss of your Mom. My late mother was born near Downs,KS and grew up in Phillipsburg, so knew the Kensington area as a kid. Thoughts are with you.
