A TRIBUTE TO TWO BEAUTIFUL KHS65 COEDS, THEN & NOW
At the time of our 10th reunion she was living in Peoria, IL and I believe they were living in Milwaukee when she died. Here is the entry from our 1975 Reunion book:
"M'Linda Jennings Flynn now lives in Peoria, IL with her husband, Tom, whom she met at Drake University. They have 1 son, Brian, who is almost 3. M'Linda graduated from Bradley in 1970 with a BS in Elementary Education with a major in Language Arts. She plans to go back to Bradley to get her Masters in Speech. She taught 7th and 8th grade in Illinois. They have toured the French West Indies and Jamaica. M'Linda likes craft projects and "housewifing". They go to lots of sports events and take some non-paying chairmanships for Alumni groups. Mostly just keeping up with Brian keeps her busy."
M'Linda died of an aggressive form of breast cancer, that strain which is more common in younger women I believe. Perhaps in today's world the miracles of modern medicine could have saved her. For sure the phrase I see often, "gone too soon but never forgotten" certainly applies to the happy, always smiling M'Linda. If you go to the sidebar post about our Yearbook, you can see her Senior picture to remind yourself of that darling, smiling face. My thanks go to Pam for giving me the impetus to gather this information, and I know everyone joins me in wishing Pam better health in the coming year.
