• Linda Kay Kline

    24 Jan 2020

  • Sedan – Linda Kay (Aiken) Kline, of rural Sedan Kansas passed away Friday January 24th 2020 at Swedish Hospital in Seattle, Washington. She was born November 20th, 1944 to Glen Aiken and Dola (Glenn) Aiken. She attended school in Caney and Sedan, Kansas. 

    Linda grew up on the Aiken Acres family dairy farm with her two siblings Shirley and Kenneth. Linda was involved in her local Girl Scouts troop, a member of the Eastside Hustlers 4-H club, and a very talented trumpet player. After high school Linda had many professional pursuits; beautician, office administrator, and farm wife to name a few. 

    It was in the fall of 1968 that she met Bob Kline in a wheatfield. He was headed to Hawaii but after meeting Linda, things changed. They were married February 13th 1969 in Independence, KS. That fall, Linda gave birth to her first baby boy, Brian Keith Kline on September 9, 1969.  A few years later she gave birth to her second baby boy, Kevin on November 29, 1975.  Much of her passions in her early life were later passed on to her own children and grandchildren. This was shown as she led various 4-H trips all across the country, encouraged creativity in her sons and community, all while carrying on the family dairy business with Bob by her side. 

    Linda was also a lifelong Sedan Blue Devil fan, and cherished watching her children and grandchildren’s various activities. Linda loved being a grandmother and never shied away from the adventures this brought forth. She will be remembered as a vivacious, intelligent, and loyal woman. 

    Linda was preceded in death by her parents, and her husband Robert Kline. She is survived by her two siblings Shirley Baker and Kenneth Aiken, two sons Kevin (Nicole) Klinemeier and Brian (Donna) Kline, and numerous grandchildren and great grandchildren.

    Visitation will be held on Monday, February 3, 2020 from 3:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. with the family receiving friends from 3 pm to 5 pm and 6 pm to 8 pm at the Dickens Family Funeral Home in Sedan.

     A Memorial Service will be held on Tuesday, February 4, 2020 at 4:00 p.m. at the 4-H Building at the Sedan City Park.

    The family has suggested memorials to the Chautauqua County 4-H Scholarship Fund and may be left in care of the Dickens Family Funeral Home, 209 N. Douglas, Sedan, Kansas  67361.

    Am just learning about Linda. Had no idea as the last time I saw her she looked and acted great. I am so very sorry.


    She was a great 4-H leader
