Linda Mae Klander

February 02, 1954 - June 06, 2017


Linda passed away peacefully June 6th, 2017 at her home, with her loving family by her side. Linda was born in Phoenix, Arizona on February 2nd, 1954 to Wilbur and Doris Kurz. She attended Nooksack Valley schools and was a strong athlete. Linda met Jon Klander, fell in love, and married on November 21st, 1970. Together they raised 4 children on the family farm, built a reputable meat cutting business, and drove truck across the country for 10 years.

Linda loved with all her heart, worked harder than any woman we know and cooked the most wonderful meals. When she had free time, she spent it baking with grandkids, canning, gardening, crocheting, and fishing. Linda had an open-door policy at her home and all were welcome. She would invite anyone that did not have a place to be that night or holiday, there was always a piece of pie and a place at the table.

Linda is survived by her husband Jon of 47 years; children Toni (Brandon) Miller, Ernie (Jeanie) Klander, Bobbie (Shawn) Boyer, Galen (Missy) Klander, and 16 grandchildren; brothers Eugene Kurz, Don (Vickie) Kurz, and sister Carole (Ward) Larsen. Linda was preceded in death by her sister, Shirley Oleksuk.

Linda’s last wish was that her family all get together for one big party to celebrate the incredible life she has had. Please join us June 25th, 2017 at 2pm for a potluck celebration at 1006 Ten Mile Rd. Everson.

    She will be so missed, I didn’t get to see her often . but she always made me feel totally welcome in her home, part of the family. She was one of the hardest working women I have met but was always ready with a smile and a laugh. I can’t be sad for her, because she is now out of pain and at peace. Those that are left behind will be a little better off for having known her. Goodbye for now Linda…
