Linda Lee Knudson|
Linda Lee Knudson, 73, of Bellevue, WA passed away on November 2, 2012 after a prolonged illness. Linda was born in the Ozark Mountains near Huntsville, AR. An ardent Razorback and unrivaled hog-caller, she obtained both bachelors and masters degrees in education at the University of Arkansas. Linda went on to teach in Denver and then in Monterey, CA where she met her future husband, John V. Knudson. John's career as an FBI agent took them to several states where Linda continued to teach. In 1972, they settled in Bellevue where she became a beloved kindergarten teacher and fierce tennis competitor.
Linda is survived by her brother, Kenneth Jones of Sacramento, CA, sister Marilyn Twitty of Richland, WA, numerous nieces and nephews, and a close circle of dedicated, selfless and loving friends. She was a blessing in the lives of all she touched. Linda will be remembered for her vibrancy and youthful energy and leaves us all with a legacy of laughter and genuine love.
A celebration of her life will be planned for a future date.
