Linda Gail Frost 1949 - 2011
Paid family tribute
Linda Gail Frost, 61, passed away peacefully with her family by her side on November 4, 2011 in Topeka, KS. She was born November 26, 1949 in Lawrence, KS, the daughter of Clayton L. and Edith M.
(Mitchell) Frost. Linda attended special education classes at Sumner Elementary School and the Topeka Association for Retarded Citizens. Earlier she participated in the Special Olympics, but in later times her favorite activities were watching TV, browsing through magazines with her cat “Tigger” at her side, and drinking BIG cokes. Holidays and birthdays, especially her own, were very important to Linda. She was baptized at Quivira Heights Church of Christ in Topeka.
For the past 26 years, Linda was lovingly cared for by the staff of Quest Services, resided in Neosho Rapids, KS, and attended Day Services in Hartford, KS. The staff of Quest Services became her second family where Linda blossomed under their loving care. Her family will forever be grateful for the tenderness they provided in caring for our Linda Gail. Friends and family were so blessed by Linda’s sense of humor which was evident in her twinkling eyes and giggles. Her huge hugs and kisses will be sorely missed.
Linda is survived by her loving mother Edith M. (Mitchell) Frost and her siblings, JoAnn (Steve) Kirk and Bob Frost all of Topeka. Linda is the cherished aunt of 3 nieces: Christa (Ron) Webber of Florida, Josie (Mike) Pagel and Liesel (Brad) Fink of Topeka. Three great nieces and seven great nephews will carry on Linda’s memory. She was preceded in death by her father, Clayton L. Frost on November 27, 2008.
A private celebration of Linda Gail’s life was held on November 12, 2011 at the Mount Hope Abbey Chapel where both of Linda’s families gathered. The service was officiated by Linda’s uncle, Harold Mitchell of Iowa. Some of Linda’s favorite songs were sung by the families, including “Happy Birthday”. These songs were lead by Linda’s uncle, Dennis Mitchell of Arkansas.
