Linda Kay Brown

Obituaries | Gillette, Wyoming

Linda Kay Brown, 75, passed away on November 6th with close family at her side. She was born in Seminole, OK on June 15, 1945 to Henry and Dorothy Draeger.

Linda is survived by two daughters, Angela Brown and Ladeana Brown-Wenc; a loving partner, Tom Giggee; brother, Charlie Draeger; five grandkids; and five great grandkids. Born the oldest of five children, she was preceded in death by her father, mother, three brothers, and daughter, Julie Rodriguez.

She understood what the most valuable things in life were and did a beautiful job sharing that wisdom with each of us. Her strength and character provided a foundation for all to feel supported and now build upon.

An artist, an academic, an angel; a soul like hers will not be kept waiting by Saint Peter for very long. Life, love, happiness, family, and the hope of us all finding our way to salvation is what kept her on earth for as long as she could. Family was by far the most important thing to our grandmother, our mother, our sister, our significant other. She will be forever immortalized as the child of our heart.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 2:00 p.m., Wednesday, November 18, 2020 at St. Matthew’s Catholic Church with Father Cliff Jacobson officiating; interment to follow at Mt. Pisgah Cemetery. Visitation will take place from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., Tuesday, November 17, 2020 at Walker Funeral Home.

Memorials and condolences may be sent in care of Walker Funeral Home 410 Medical Arts, Court, Gillette, WY 82716. Condolences may also be expressed at
