Henderson, Linda - Des Moines  
Linda Henderson Des Moines It's hard to say goodbye to our Linda. Her time with us wasn't enough. And while she now lives in Heaven, she remains a vibrant, loving, generous spirit that will live forever in our hearts. Words can never adequately describe the impact Linda had on her family and friends. Her generosity, graciousness, kindness and good humor were always forefront. Linda fought the good fight against cancer and never complained. She lived each day to the fullest with a zeal and passion that should remind each of us to do the same. Linda was the best mother, daughter, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend. She made each of these her priority and we will all remember the love she freely gave and the kindness she always extended. She is survived by her father and stepmother, Jim and Delores Dice; her beloved children, Gary (Angella) Uhl, Courtney Uhl, and Jon Henderson; granddaughter, Brynna Uhl; her brother, Bob Dice; sisters, Cheri Dice Emzen and Kathy Leto; and her lifelong friend, Anita Bride; as well as many loving relatives. She was preceded in death by her mother, Leta Porter. Linda is also survived by a huge family of friends who loved and cherished her. Linda was a member of "The Skip's Family" for more than twenty years; they were her friends, her cheerleaders, and her dancing partners. Linda was loved and supported by many throughout her illness, for which she was extremely grateful. Linda's interests were many. She was active in the Republican Party and supported many candidates with her time and energy. Her most memorable and enjoyable times were spent on Lake Okoboji with family and friends. She also loved family dinners and entertaining for holiday celebrations. Linda had fun, she loved, she engaged, she laughed and she never gave up. We are sad to say goodbye to such a wonderful woman and will miss and remember her always; smiling at her, and how she made us feel - wonderful! A memorial service will be held on Friday, March 6, 2015 at 7:00 p.m. with visitation from 5 to 8 p.m. at Hamilton's on Westown Parkway, 3601 Westown Parkway in West Des Moines, IA.
