Linda J. Kegley, 65

Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God (Mt. 5:8). Our dear Linda left this earth suddenly, on December 1. She was loved by many. Her life was full of giving and serving others. As the oldest sister of seven, she helped raise five younger siblings. Linda then raised four children of her own as well as her oldest grandson, and also took care of her father during his senior years. In addition, she spent the last 20 years serving as a Community Aide, doing homecare work with people in need. We will miss Linda's loving hand of care.

She is survived by her dear friend Jim Taylor, mother Grace Karr, siblings: Albert Pitzen, Donna Smith, Sandra Beers, Arnold Pitzen, Allen Pitzen and Alex Pitzen, children; Sheri Kegley, Kelie Griffin, Steve Kegley and Lesa Kegley, nine grandchildren and one great-grandchild. A memorial service and reception will be held at 11:30 a.m. on December 31, 2005 at Tibbetts United Methodist Church, 3940 41st Ave S.W., Seattle.
