Linda Kay McManigal
Linda Kay McManigal, 78, of Lenexa, KS, lost her battle with cancer, June 8, 2020, at the home. Many of you reading this obituary will remember the dear friend you grew to know and love.
Linda was born on September 2, 1941, in Kansas City, Kansas, to Peter and Margaret Vogel.
Linda met and fell in love with Russ and they were married on August 20, 1977. They blended a family of four children and enjoyed the companionship of many rescue dogs they adopted together. Linda spent most of her life working initially as a temp secretary and steadily rose to the top as executive secretary to the president. She loved going south for winters, attending events of grandchildren, and was well known for making the most delicious lemon meringue pies along with her kind and positive spirit. In addition to work and family, Linda loved to provide Meals on Wheels and work in the church food pantry.
There is no greater honor in this life than to love and be loved. We will forevermore honor her, daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and friend.
Linda is preceded in death by her parents, Peter and Margaret Vogel and granddaughter Hannah. She is survived by her husband, Russ; her sister Gail (Mike); three daughters and their husbands and one son and his wife: Lori and Eric, Pam and Brian, Kelly and Fred, Scott and Bernadette; nine grandchildren: Ryan, Kyle (Molly), Ted (Claire), Matt, Austin (Mandee), Blake, Ben, Zac and Caleb; two great-granddaughters: Rory and Elliott; and another great-grandson is expected in October.
We are a family bound together in love and faith; we know Linda is at peace; we know we will see her again. “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.” Proverbs 3:5-6
