Obituary for Linda K. VanBuskirk

Linda Kaye VanBuskirk, 69, of Edmond, Oklahoma, passed away on Sunday, October 22, 2017.
Linda was born in Oklahoma City, OK on August 1, 1948. She was caring, hardworking, generous, and adored by all who met her. Her advice was genuine and her smile contagious. Linda’s beauty was striking and elegant, she was a refined woman who lived humbly.
Linda led a successful 41-year career working for the FAA in research and training. Her greatest achievement and purpose in life was being a mother. Though, taken too soon, Linda’s daughter, Elizabeth was her entire world.
Linda attended Crooked Oak High School, class of ’66, received a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from the University of Central Oklahoma, as well as graduate work from the University of Oklahoma in Education. Linda enjoyed traveling and was a lover of the arts.
She is survived by her sister and caregiver; Vickie Lynn Cowan, sister; Terrie Lynn Vannoy, Brothers; Robert Dean Scoles and Ray Earl VanBuskirk; 6 nieces, 7 nephews, 4 great nieces, 9 great nephews, and numerous extended family and friends.
She was preceded in death by daughter; Elizabeth Lynn Payne, brother; Gary Lee VanBuskirk, and her parents; R.E. & Dorothy Louise VanBuskirk.
