Linda went home today after a long struggle with many health problems. Born in Provo, Utah to Mark Lee and Marylin Wilcox Angus, she died in rural Cheyenne County, Nebraska, surrounded by her family.
Growing-up in Roy, Utah, she graduated high school there in 1970. Linda received her BA in elementary education from Brigham Young University in 1974.
She was married to Brent Evans on Valentine’s Day in 1974 in the Salt Lake City Temple.
They are the parents of three children; Richard, Rachel (deceased), and Rebekah (Wheeler). They are the proud grandparents of (soon-to-be), six children.
She is survived by her husband, father, sister (Susan), brother (David), sister (Karen), and brother (Leland).
Linda taught school in Orem and Pleasant Grove, Utah before quitting to raise her children. She lived in Utah, Benton County, Arkansas, Estes Park, Colorado, and finally, Cheyenne County, Nebraska. For a short time, she worked as pianist for the high school choir in Sidney, Nebraska before being debilitated by complications of kidney failure.
Linda was always an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Over the years, she served in too many callings to mention here, including teaching groups of various ages, to being the president of the relief societies in two wards. She also served as the Public Affairs Director of the Springdale, Arkansas Stake.
She particularly enjoyed her short tenure as organist for the Trinity Lutheran Church in Sidney, Nebraska where she made many wonderful friends.
