Kathy Genene Linderman, 66, of Missoula, MT passed away Sunday, March 7, 2021 at St Patrick Hospital with her daughters at her side.
She was born August 11, 1954 in Kooskia, ID to Harold and Martha Pattan. She is survived by two sisters and two brothers – Louise, Shirley, Dale, and Keith. Her sister Carol and brother Perry both proceeded her in death.
She attended Kooskia High School. She graduated Valley Business College on June 5, 1981 where she studied to become an executive secretary. She found her true calling in Missoula as a caregiver. She officially retired in 2017 but continued to give her love and support to her dear friend Zan Olson until her passing. She touched the lives of every person she gave care to and quickly became a compassionate friend to all. She went above and beyond to make sure they had the best care possible and to make sure they knew she cared deeply for them.
She is also survived by her three daughters - Toni (Shawn), Brandi (Lonnie), and Michelle (Jade), and her son – Eric (Rena). She has nine grandchildren - Brittney, Taylor, Trinity, Miette, Nikki, Anton, Trae, Danika and Rikki. She also has seven great grandchildren - Elly, Avyrie, Aryan, Iryss, Aurora, Ryder and Bryer.
She enjoyed decorating and spending time in her yard. She loved camping, concerts and road trips. However, nothing made her happier than family and being at home with her beloved Chihuahuas - Copper, Carley and Bear.
Service will be held on Saturday, March 13, 2021 at 11:00 am at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Stevensville, MT.
