Linda Miller

February 24, 1948 — September 29, 2023 McPherson, KS

Linda Louise (Hawkins) Miller, 75, of McPherson, KS, a beloved mother, grandmother, and dedicated teacher, peacefully passed away on Friday, September 29, 2023, surrounded by family at Research Medical Center, Kansas City, MO. She touched the lives of many with her kindness and love. Born on February 24, 1948, in Carrollton, MO, to Lawrence Lee and Louise (Sanger) Hawkins, Linda dedicated her life to nurturing the minds of countless students during her career as a teacher. Her commitment to education not only left a lasting impact on her students but also served as an inspiration to her four children, whom she lovingly raised. Linda graduated from Stet County High School in Missouri and McPherson College. She was a Home Economics teacher, daycare provider, staff trainer at MCDS, and CMA and CNA at The Cedars. Outside the classroom, Linda found solace in her garden and the art of sewing. Her green thumb brought color and joy to any yard she could, reflecting her love for nature’s beauty. Her skillful hands created countless cherished garments, quilts, and crafts, leaving a legacy of her creative spirit. Music filled Linda’s home, as she graced the piano with her talent. She had a deep appreciation for classical music, and enjoyed singing at her local Church of the Brethren. Her love for music has been passed down through the generations, leaving an indelible mark on her family. Linda was not only a devoted mother but also a loving grandmother to five adoring grandchildren. Her warmth and wisdom will live on in their hearts as they carry her legacy forward. She leaves behind cherished memories and a profound impact on her family, friends, and the countless lives she touched throughout her life. Linda Miller will be remembered for her unwavering love, her dedication to education, her green thumb, her musical talents, and her enduring presence in the hearts of those who knew and loved her.

Our community gathered to share memories and condolences to the family.
