OBITUARY

Linda Sue Carpenter Robertson

February 8, 1941April 4, 2021

Linda Sue Carpenter Robertson passed away on April 4th, 2021 at St. Luke’s Hospice House.

She spent her final weeks at the home of her daughter and son-in-law where she was showered with loving care and constantly surrounded by her children, children-in-law and grandchildren. Linda enjoyed visits, flowers, calls and texts from her friends and wanted to be very sure to thank everyone for their many kind gestures of friendship, so thank you!

Linda was born February 8, 1941 in Kansas City to Ferrel and George Carpenter. She graduated from Paseo High School, attended William Jewell College and Kansas State University, and earned her degree in Biology from the University of Missouri, Kansas City. Linda married her high school sweetheart John Robertson and together they made their home in the Kansas City area and raised their three children. Linda became a medical technologist and worked in the laboratory at Menorah Medical Center for 27 years. She then worked for 22 years as an accounting clerk at RMF Steel Products. Linda and John enjoyed travelling, and took their family on trips all over the world. The family grew when Linda and John welcomed their children-in-law and grandchildren into their lives, and they continued the tradition of family travel. The family has many happy memories of trips and adventures from Colorado to Yellowstone, Alaska to Paris to the Caribbean, from cruises to hikes. Grandma was always planning a trip.

Linda was preceded in death by her husband of 59 years, John E. Robertson in August of 2020, and was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer shortly thereafter. She is survived by her three children Brad Robertson, Scott Robertson (Blythe), and Ann Holliday (Christopher). She also leaves her five beloved grandchildren Emma Robertson, George Robertson, John Robertson, Luke Holliday and Ruth Holliday. In addition, Linda is survived by her sister Sande Wilcher (Grover); her siblings-in-law Judith Hanses, Joe Robertson (Sharon) and Jane Hanks (Warren) along with many dear nieces and nephews. Linda treasured her family and her many friends from Menorah, RMF, the ATC Club, Allendale and a lifetime of involvement in her community.

The family would like to thank the Brookdale Wornall Place community for enriching Linda and John’s last years. In addition, the family would like to thank St. Luke’s Hospice House for their support in her final days. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to Lakemary Center, 100 Lakemary Drive, Paola, KS 66071 or St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church, 6401 Wornall Terrace, Kansas City, MO 64113.

Linda and I worked at Menorah together. She was a fun person to visit with while we worked. So sorry for your loss.

I am heart broken. But I will always remember our dancing in Portugal. And, no-one knew good french fries like Linda.
