Linda Kay Roberts (Fletcher), 75, a Northland resident of Kansas City, MO (formerly of Weatherby Lake, MO) passed away November 29, 2022, at her home under hospice care. She was born November 25, 1947, in Kansas City, MO to Malcolm and Carolyn (Hudson) Morris.
She was united in marriage with Johnnie Eugene “Gene” Roberts April 16, 1977, in Kansas City, MO. She is survived by her three daughters: Helena Pauline Roberts, her husband Frederick Maidment and their son Trip; Amanda Elizabeth Roberts and her two sons, Malcolm Edgar and Ellis Edgar; Victoria Jane Roberts; her godchildren: Brooke and her daughter, Olivia; Russell and Chris. She was preceded in death by her husband Gene in 2019 and both of her parents.
Linda was small in stature but had the ability to quiet a room full of her daughters and their friends with one look. A die-hard Chiefs fan, Linda would spend Sunday afternoons alerting the neighborhood to how the game was going via her loud ‘expressions’. Her wit was unmatched giving her the ability to shock everyone while playing Cards Against Humanity, always winning the game. Linda’s love of pranks was encouraged by her late husband, Gene. The two would often conspire to prank their daughters and friends and are certainly continuing their shenanigans now that they have both been reunited.
Linda loved to read, travel, and help people. She was always there for a shoulder to cry on showing empathy and giving everyone she met encouragement to be their unique selves. She lived her adult life to give her daughters every opportunity available being a fierce advocate for their education and passions. She loved to rescue dogs, never meeting a canine who didn’t automatically fall in love with her love. Linda was endlessly caring, loving, and giving. She will forever be in our hearts as a shining example of kindness.
