Linda Lee Kolkosky, 74, of Happy Valley, Oregon, passed on March 24, 2015, of natural causes.

Linda was born in Concordia, Kansas, on June 6, 1940. She graduated from Grant High School in 1958. A year later she married the absolute love of her life, Kenneth Walter Kolkosky, on October 10, 1959. Since that day, they were inseparable for 55 years. They have three beautiful daughters: Lisa Jendrzejewski, Lori Mahaffy, and Kenda Presley. She is survived also by her eight grandchildren: Ryan, Camille, Brianne, Michael, James, Christopher, Abigail, and Sophia.

Linda worked as a homemaker and stay-at-home mother until her girls were grown and married. She then became a business owner with her husband Ken for 15 years.

She enjoyed entertaining for friends and family, and her biggest loves in life were spending time with family, cooking gourmet meals, making quilts for children and grandchildren, shopping, and gardening.

There will be no service upon Linda's request. Instead, there will be a small grave side service for immediate family at Mount Calvary Catholic Cemetery, as well as a celebration of life held at Ken and Linda's home in Happy Valley.
