Born Sept. 29, 1954, in Allegan, she was the daughter of the late Howard and Violet Marie (Brenner) Truax Jr. and was the wife of Kenneth Thompson.
Linda was an avid gardener who also loved crafting of any kind. She also liked to go mushroom hunting every year.

She was a supportive and loving mother and grandmother and will be greatly missed.

Thompson, Terrance Hightower and Brody Nyhoff; nephew, Little Ronnie and Tara Truax; several stepbrothers and stepsisters; and a host of nieces, nephews and dear friends.
