Linda Kay Steen, 71, of Odessa, passed away Tuesday, June 8, 2021 at her residence. She was born June 19, 1949 in Odessa to the late Imogene Elizabeth (Barber) and Edward Dewey Thetford.

She was a graduate of Permian High School and married Ronnie Ray Steen on October 23, 1967. They were married for almost 20 years before Ronnie passed away in a car accident. Linda worked as a food server in the cafeteria for ECISD for over 10 years. She enjoyed movies, fishing, word puzzles, board games (especially “Bump”) and shopping. Linda loved Disney movies, Hallmark and Lifetime movies, and NASCAR - Jeff Gordon was her favorite driver. She loved to spoil her dogs. She also loved Betty Boop and she had tons of collectibles and memorabilia, including a little red golf cart that was completely decked out in Betty Boop stickers, license plates, and with “Grammies Lil Hoopee” on the windshield. Linda enjoyed decorating greeting cards & envelopes and was a master of glitter, bedazzle, beads and stickers. The envelopes would be beautifully decorated with stickers made especially for the occasion or holiday and lots of colored gemstones and the card would be signed with colorful pens and markers. It was always exciting to receive a card in the mailbox from her. She was a member of the Cowboy Church in Bronte, TX and really enjoyed the fellowship of the parishioners. Linda was a beautiful, caring, loving daughter, sister, wife, mother and grandmother. She will be greatly missed by all who knew her.

Linda is survived by her sons, Ronnie Steen and wife Melissa and David Steen; brothers, Eddie Thetford and wife Jean and James Thetford and wife Deanna; granddaughter, Evalee Kay Steen, all of Odessa; nieces, Robin Thetford Carpenter of Odessa and Amanda Thetford of Arizona; nephews, Eddie Thetford, Jr. of Taylor, TX, Robbie Thetford of Michigan, and Bobby Thetford of North Carolina.

She is preceded in death by her husband, Ronnie Ray Steen; and parents, Edward and Imogene Thetford.
