Linda Latendresse - 1963

Linda Latendresse Janin - recent

Linda passed away at her home on July 24, 2007, after a long and courageous battle with diabetes and kidney disease. She was born in Yakima, WA, on December 3, 1944, and moved to the Tri-Cities where she remained for 62 years.

Linda was preceded in death by her loving and devoted husband Leon, her youngest son Michael, her father and her brother, Gene ('52-RIP).

She is survived by her three children, Lisa and Roy Ingram, Virginia and Scott Vogel, Kory and Kari Janin, four grandchildren, her mother, brother. Fred ('57) and two sisters, Janet ('54) and Claire ('69).

Linda was excitedly waiting for the birth of her first great-granddaughter who is due this December. Her sister and best friend, Jan Strickland cared for her throughout her illness and added much joy to her life. Linda and her mother were both avid Seattle Mariners fans. A heart-felt THANK-YOU goes out to the caring people at the Tri-Cities Kidney Center.

Everyone who knew Linda appreciated her great sense of humor and she will be missed tremendously.

Inspired by Linda's love of animals, donations may be made to the Benton-Franklin Humane Society.
