Linda spent most of her life in the Kansas City area where she attended St. Louis elementary school and then went on to graduate from South East High School. Soon after, she met her loving husband Roger, a bond that lasted 57 years until his death in 2019. She and Roger had fun playing co-ed volleyball for several years, Linda loved her family and her world revolved around them. She loved attending every one of her boys’ baseball games, taking family trips to Pomme de Terre and Lake of the Ozarks, and getting the family together for the Holidays. Linda was also very involved with Queen of the Holy Rosary Church, especially in the years that her children attended the school. When she was not spending time with her family, or cheering for the Royals, she worked as an administrative assistant for Dickenson Movie Theatres. 

She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, Roger, as well as her brother, Kent Bertsch. She is survived by her children; R. Paul Putthoff, Phillip A. Putthoff (Laura), and Stephen M. Putthoff, (Sarah), grandchildren, Jacob D. Putthoff (Lauren) and Lauren M. Putthoff, great-grandson, Blayke, as well as a nephew, Michael Scott.
