Linda Kay Roedel

November 28, 1949June 22, 2020

Linda Kay (Bomnskie) Castoria-Roedel, 70, of Montgomery, TX, formerly of Bryan, went to be with her Heavenly Father on Monday, June 22, 2020.

Linda was born in Bryan to Minnie Luther and Henry Kizer Bomnskie, Jr. the youngest of four children. She graduated in 1968 from Stephen F. Austin High School. She started her career as a legal secretary.

In 1983, she joined the Brazos County Rape Crisis Center as a volunteer. Soon after, she became its first executive director. Linda would lead the center for twenty-two years. She was a pioneer in victim’s advocacy and through her efforts, countless lives were touched and forever changed. In 2005, she met and later married the love of her life, Dave. She then moved to Montgomery, Texas to pursue a secondary career in real estate together with him.

Linda will be forever remembered for her infectious laugh, positive outlook on life, listening ear, caring heart, and willingness to share her wisdom. She was unapologetically herself. She was so proud of her Polish heritage and is no doubt playing a mean game of 42 in heaven with her daddy.

She is preceded in death by her parents and a brother, Johnny Edward Bomnskie.

Linda’s memory will live on through her loving husband, Dave; her children Stephanie and Donnie Manry, Alisha and Craig Kuhl, Devaron and Jami Roedel, and Jason Roedel; her grand angels Colby Fagan, Chelsea and Hank Walshak, Haley Manry, Sidney Criddle, Carson and Collin Kuhl, Mareesa Pederson and Joey, and Kyle Roedel; her great-grand angels Tyson, Garrison, Karson, and soon-to-be born Avery and Reid; a sister, Carolyn Lucas; a brother, Kenneth Bomnskie; and numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, and close friends.

In an abundance of caution related to COVID-19, there will not be a service at this time.

In lieu of flowers, the family wishes that you would make a donation to “Linda’s Legacy” at the Brazos County Rape Crisis Center dba SARC (Sexual Assault Resource Center) to honor her life-long passion of helping others. sarcbv.org or BV SARC PO Box 3082 Bryan, Texas 77805

I’ll miss you Linda Roedel. I loved our nicknames inspired by Craig Dolson. Galveston, Buffalo Wild Wings, astros games, parties at our house and our funny phone calls will all be missed. Your laugh was contagious! I’m sure your Dad was glad to see you....but we all miss you. I’ve looked everywhere for our photo together from Galveston. Help me find it. ❤️

Debbie and I have fond memories of you and Linda for the times we spent together. She was a gracious and caring person with a wonderfully positive attitude. She was truly fun to be around. We are very sorry to hear about your loss.

Linda will be in our hearts forever. My mother Valerie and I loved her tremendously and our times together with Dave. Always laughing, smiling and looking forward towards our next adventure. We would always pick up where we had last left off. Linda had a heart of gold and did so many wonderful things for others. Never selfish and always giving. She was our true friend, a lifer just like Dave. I always said what a couple they made. So similar in wants, beliefs, desires, faith, family, education and life. Linda and I were texting the night before she passed away. Our last words to each other: We miss you and we love you! We couldn't ask for anything more to hold on to. We will miss Linda Kay Roedel such a beautiful lady

Linda Kay Roedel

Since the beginning of time God meant for Man and Woman to find love with each other. God also warned them about the “forbidden tree”. Then came the “snake” and tempted both Adam and Eve. God did not like what he saw and from that time on all of mankind searched for their soulmate and God's acceptance.

Sixteen years ago I found my soulmate.

“Soulmate” by definition usually refers to a romantic or platonic partner, with the implication of an exclusive lifelong bond. It commonly holds the connotation of being the strongest bond with another person that one can achieve. The definition ranges widely and cannot be pinpointed.

I know Linda was and is “my soulmate” and being married to her and her being by my side made me feel complete as a human being. That along with God's acceptance is all I ever wanted in life!

We were always “better together.”

I love you Linda!

We met Linda and Dave in 2008. That is not so long ago but it seems like we have known them our entire lives. Linda's passing shocked and saddened us, but we are left with the memories of a wonderful woman, wife, and mother who cared deeply for Dave and her family. Her warm, open personality, twinkling eyes, dazzling smile, and that incredibly infectious laugh will definitely be missed. The good news is that she is now home with her savior, Jesus Christ.

Dave and Family,
Linda was not only the wife of one of my Best Friends, but she was an avid and crazy Astros fan. We attended many games together, always sitting in the same Club section, enjoying hot dogs, fries and a beer. Although, I won't miss the Astros Finger being waved around dangerously - Lol.
Linda will be missed by Family, Friends and Co-workers, but we are comforted in knowing that Linda had a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and is now with her Heavenly Father.
