Private family graveside services are planned for Linda L. Dehart, 73, who passed away Aug. 5 at her home in Wichita. Heaven gained an angel and the world lost a brilliant soul.
She was born Feb. 27, 1947, in Peabody to Elmer Uphoff and Elsie (Brown) Uphoff.
Linda was an amazing wife, mother, sister, daughter, grandmother, and friend. Her years overflowed with love, laughter, and compassion for others. She loved books, puzzles, crafts, bingo, and volunteering at the Kansas Food Bank.
No matter the circumstances, she always saw the silver lining and never missed an opportunity to bring out a smile with her charm and quick wit. She gifted those around her with an absolute presence of joy.
She deeply loved her son, Ronnie; granddaughter, Athena; and great-grandsons, Dezzy and Thomas.
She will be forever missed. The family is so appreciative of the compassionate staff of Interim Hospice, who made her final weeks so special.
In lieu of flowers please donate to Kansas Food Bank or Sedgwick County Humane Society.
