Linda Marie Nutt’s work on Earth is done. She went to be with her Savior on Friday, December 1, 2017, after a brave fight against cancer. She spent her last days in hospice at Lindon Court with her family and a very caring staff.
Linda was born on June 1, 1952 at Kimball, Nebraska to Orville and Viola Hammond. The daughter of a railroad man, she moved often throughout her childhood, attending school in North Platte, and graduating from Brady High School. She was the youngest of six children.
Linda met the love of her life when she was 14. She married Louis “Louie” Nutt in Curtis, Nebraska on December 23, 1969. Louie and Linda raised three daughters, Melanie, Kasey and Lindsey.
They made their home in Wellfleet, Nebraska for 45 years. Linda was the wife of a railroad man. She stayed home with her children while they were raised. She later worked at the agriculture college in Curtis as a dorm night guard, and as a janitor for the Maywood Public Schools for several years. Everything she did – she did with love; from cleaning to making sure every new baby in the family had a crocheted blanket (or two).
She loved spending time with family, and she enjoyed creating graphics on her computer. She loved sewing and crocheting and organizing. She made everything look easy, especially baking pies. She always took time for everyone, and she absolutely loved going to church and Bible Study at St. Johns Lutheran Church in Curtis.
Linda was proceeded in death by her parents and a sister, Penny Ziegler.
