Linda Joyce Day of Grain Valley, Missouri passed away on Friday January 6, 2023, after a 13 year battle with Alzheimer’s disease, surrounded by her loving family.
Linda, daughter of Charles N. Dyer and Lucille (Dillard) Dyer, was born on September 6, 1944. Linda began working for Southwestern Bell/AT&T at age 16 as an operator, took several years off to start a family before returning. She was later promoted to manager and retired in 1999 after 32 years of service, never working for another company.
Linda enjoyed exercising, interior decorating, landscaping and working in her award winning garden. But more than anything, Linda enjoyed being with her family and spoiling her three grandchildren. Her kindness knew no bounds and she was always full of love for everyone. Linda met the love of her life, Reginald “Reggie” Day in 1957 at the age of 13. They were married on March 7, 1964 and went on to have almost 59 years filled with the truest love ever known. Her love for her family was unconditional. She showed up for football, soccer, baseball, wrestling, ice skating and swim meets for her children and grandchildren whenever possible. We will forever remember your kind and loving soul.
Linda is preceded in death by her loving husband Reggie (December 30, 2022) and her parents, Lucille (1992) and Charles (2001).
