Linda Kay Berry

July 4, 1942 ~ September 8, 2022 (age 80)


Linda Kay Berry of Lee, IL was born July 4, 1942. She went to meet the Lord on September 8 ,
2022 at the age of 80 years old as both of her daughters held her hands. She fought a long, hard,
and courageous battle of cancer for 3.5 years, but she lived a long life filled with love and joy.
She meant so many things to so many different people from all walks of life. She was very loved
by all those who encountered her, whether near or far. She has made an impact on countless
lives. Linda was always looking out for others with love and care, even those she didn’t really
know. She was also a strong and passionate woman who always stood up for what she believed
was right. She had a big heart for people and always brought joy and laughter to those around
her. She truly enjoyed watching her daughters, grandkids, and great grandkids grow up and she
also had a love for animals, calling all the animals in the family her “grand dogs or grand cats”.
One of her favorite pastimes was shopping, especially if there was a bargain and she just loved to
talk and make friends with everyone she came in contact with!
Linda also had a love for parades and for years she helped on the floats for the Sycamore
Pumpkin Fest. What many may not know, is that Linda was also known for showing up in places
dressed in costume. She would go out for ice cream dressed as a cow, show up at parties dressed
as a clown, and even go to the parades in the little town of Lee dressed as the Statue of Liberty
just to make people smile and laugh.
Her family will continue her legacy of love, laughter, courage, and care for others by enjoying
life, loved ones, and others just as Linda did.
Linda retired from Ideal Industries in DeKalb, IL after almost 17 years.
Linda is preceded in death by her Mother, Viola Fern Ewing (1997) and her Father George Keith
Ewing (2003). She is survived by a twin sister, Donna May Kilbreth, 2 daughters, Dawn (Gary)
Taber of Lee, IL, and Cindy (Mike) Dischler of Janesville, WI. She is also survived by her
grandchildren, Angela McCormick, Tonya (Matt) Hughes, Tina (Stavros) Lewis, and Charlie
(Christina) Dykes as well as 3 great grandsons and 2 great granddaughters. Linda was loved by
so many and will be truly missed by both her family and community.
Arrangements will be private. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to Tails Humane Society
in DeKalb, IL.
Please be sure to share your memories of Linda with the family.
We believe Linda lived her life as it said on a little card that she carried in her wallet, “All the
flowers of tomorrow are in the seeds of today.”
