Linda Kay (Zahradnik) Janda 1948 - 2017

MCPHERSON — Linda Kay (Zahradnik) Janda passed away on Friday, Sept. 1, 2017, at her home in McPherson at the age of 69. She was born on Aug. 5, 1948, in Ellsworth to the late Charles and Ethel (Steiner) Zahradnik. She grew up in the Kanopolis area and graduated from Kanopolis High School with the Class of 1966. On Sept. 2, 1966, she was united in marriage to Ivan K. Janda in Wilson. They were blessed with two sons, Mike and Dustin.
Linda was a hardworking woman and eventually retired from the Fuller Brush factory in 1998 after more than 20 years of service.

She enjoyed garage sales, playing Bingo, and solving crossword puzzles, often working several puzzle books at one time. But the greatest love of her life was her grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and her little dog Speck.
