Linda Kay Conn (Gleason), age 69, of Hammond, IN, passed away Saturday, April 10, 2021.

Linda graduated from Gavit Jr/Sr High School and immediately following started her family. She was a Sunday school teacher and room mother but spent most of her work life in the medical field. She retired in 2014 and while enjoying retirement loved helping her daughter with her business. Her family was the most important thing to her. She made friends everywhere she went; people adored her sparkling personality. She made everyone she loved feel like her favorite but we know it’s really her dog Foxy. She will be greatly missed.
