September 10, 1951 - December 29, 2022
Linda Gail Dunn (Bailey) of Topeka, Kansas passed away in her home surrounded by her family on Thursday, December 29th, 2022 at the age of 71. Linda was born on September 10, 1951 in Columbus, Indiana to Samuel and Stella Mae Bailey. On November 7th, 1986, she married Ronald E. Dunn. Linda retired from the State of Kansas Division of Printing after 30 years of service. After Linda retired from the State, in her free time, she volunteered at St. Johns Lutheran Church as a sacristan, worked on their monthly newsletter and delivered flowers during the holidays to the elderly congregation. Linda was a loving wife, mother and grandmother. She loved nothing more than to spend time with her family whether it be hour-long phone calls or just stopping by for a visit. Linda enjoyed shopping for antiques and she could never pass up a good handbag. She gave the best advice and was never afraid to speak her mind. She loved spending time with her great-granddaughters and they looked forward to those special days they got to spend with their “Nana.” Linda also enjoyed watching her grandchildren play sports and was always on the sidelines cheering them on.
Linda is preceded in death by her father, Sam and her mother, Stella. She is survived by her husband Ron of 37 years, her sister Carol Pelayo, and their four children Dinel Cropper (John), Tamara Barber (Tim), Randy Dunn (Rena) and Scott Gray. She is also survived by her 12 grandchildren, Dylan, Dalton, Chase, Rhyan, Cameron, Kristian, TaiSheona, McKenna, Randall, Matt, Sam, Dustin and her two great-granddaughters, Serenity and Makenzie. Linda’s celebration of life will be held on Saturday, January 28th, 2023 from 10am-2pm at 5045
