Homer resident Linda Kay Jandt, 65, passed away quietly Dec. 30, 2012, at South Peninsula Hospital in Homer. Memorial services are at 1 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 12, 2013, at Saint John's Catholic Church. Memorial donations may be made to Saint John's Catholic Church.
Linda was born in Lawton, Okla. She met Kenney Jandt in Nevada. He brought her back to Homer and they were married in September 1981. They spent many happy years on the homestead between Homer and Anchor Point before Kenney's health began to fail. Thereafter, they spent many more years living near and in Homer.
Even though Linda sometimes had trouble with Alaska's colder weather, she enjoyed a network of supportive friends and caretakers in the Homer community through health care, assisted living, cab drivers, restaurants and shops.
"People in Homer watched out for and helped to take care of Linda. I believe her caring network would have been unequaled anywhere else," her family said.
She was a member of Saint John's Catholic Parish.
She most recently resided at Soundview Assisted Living, where she enjoyed the companionship and support of Ruth, Brent and the staff, and her friends Jane and Bill.
Linda was preceded in death by her husband Kenney Jandt, her mother Margaret Fowler, her father William Trott, and daughter Wendy Myers.
She is survived by her daughters Angela Kay Van Meter and Crystal Lawton; step daughters Tonda Allred and husband Joey Allred, and Cindy Jandt; nine grandchildren; and her special friends, Fred and Patsy.
