Linda L. Wilkie

June 17, 1953 - October 22, 2012

Linda Lee Wilkie, 59, of Rapid City, S.D., died on Monday, October 22, 2012 at Rapid City Regional Hospital.
Linda was born in Rapid City on June 17, 1953, to Ed and Opal (Anderson) Bodkin. She grew up in the Billsburg/Milesville area and then the family moved to Philip, where she graduated from high school in 1971 and from Karl John’s Beauty College in 1973.
Linda married William “Bill” Wilkie on December 26, 1973. Bill and Linda had four children, Tanya, Tracy, Travis and Sherri.
Linda worked as a hairstylist and she has worked off and on at McDonalds for the past 16 years where Rob referred to her as his “Egg McMuffin of employees.”
Linda loved her kids and especially her grandkids, working at McDonald’s, making beautiful scrapbooking pages of her kids, grandkids, nieces and nephews, and friends children, and rummage saling on Saturdays.
You never had to wonder what Linda was thinking, because she just said it, even if you didn’t want to hear it.
Linda is survived by her husband, Bill Wilkie, of Rapid City; her children, Tanya Sybert of Rapid City, Tracy (Lenn) Vessell of Pensicola, Fla., Travis (Michele) Wilkie of Huron, Sherri (Curtis Colvin) Wilkie of Box Elder, Scott Arguello of Rapid City; nine grandchildren, Katelyn, Samantha, Kasey, Briana, Jared, Brady, Zachery, Brennen and Hailey; and three sisters, Betty (Jack) Sagdalen of Keystone, Karen (Ed) Snyder of Philip, and Donna Craven of Rapid City, and numerous nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Ed and Opal Bodkin; a nephew, Doug Shields; her mother- and father-in-law, Roy and Jo-Ann Wilkie.
Services were held Friday, October 26, at Kirk Funeral Home with the Rev. Jack Jewett officiating.
Interment was at Mountain View Cemetery in Rapid City.
A memorial has been established.
