7/24/1939 - 2/1/2022
Omaha - Linda Margaret Vlcek was born in Monroe, Michigan on July 24, 1939, at Mercy hospital. She was the second child of seven children born to Claud D. Anderson and Margaret Ann Anderson.
Her early years of her childhood she lived in jail. Her grandpa Bairley was the sheriff of Monroe County and they lived with them for a while . Then they moved to Indianapolis, Indiana where Linda attended Our Lady of Lourdes catholic school through the sixth grade. Afterwards, the family settled in Omaha, Nebraska. In Omaha, Linda started Saint Cecilia elementary in the seventh grade and then graduated from Cathedral high school in the class of 1957.
After high school she was a secretary in a law office for a year. She didn’t like the job, but she promised a nun from Cathedral, who got her the job, that she would stay for one year. After a year she quit and went to work for Western Electric.
Western Electric was a good place for her. She enjoyed the people and loved being around them. Linda made many friends and lifelong friendships there. Linda just made people happy and feel special around her. All total, Linda worked at Western Electric aka AT&T aka Lucent for around 30 years. During that time, she met Dennis, married, had two children, Joe and Claudia, and took an eight-year break in employment to stay home with them.
Linda had many things in life she enjoyed which included: Broadway plays, dancing, singing , and movies, especially musicals. She also enjoyed travel. She loved her bus trips with her sisters and never forgot a pilgrimage she made with her mother and sister Claudia. When it came to travel, she and Dennis completed a bucket list quest of getting to all 50 states. It took them awhile, but they made it. Speaking of 50, she and Dennis celebrated their golden wedding anniversary May 8, 2021.
Her most enjoyment came when her family grew. Claudia married Andy Holmes and Joe married Jennifer Lund. Then as an extra bonus, Joe and Jennifer went to China to adopt a 2 ½ year old boy. They named him Nicholas Kai Vlcek. He is 6 years old now and just stole Linda’s heart and love.
Linda truly loved God all her life and prayed to Him every day. We know she is with Him now and is very happy in Heaven. Linda, we will miss you very much, but you are forever in our hearts. Linda, pray for us, and please put in a good word for us with the Lord. Thank you for the time we got to spend with you.
Love and God Bless.
