Linda Sue Baker, 74, of Liberty, MO passed away on November 24, 2020.
Linda was born on August 17, 1946 in Kansas City to Ralph and Hazel Rhodes. She received her Bachelor’s degree in education and spent a short time teaching 2nd grade before starting her family and staying home to raise her two daughters. She also owned and operated a dry cleaning business and worked in banking for several years. Linda was always fun to be around and was known for her adventurous spirit. She rode hot air balloons and zip lined, went skydiving, and loved to travel, especially anywhere there was a beach. Linda also enjoyed playing Bridge and would get together often with friends for a night of cards, but spending time with her family was always most important, especially being with her grandchildren. Linda is preceded in death by her parents and brothers, Dr. R. James Rhodes and Steven Lee Rhodes. She will be fondly remembered and greatly missed by her daughters, Michele (Steve) Benner and Shannon (Todd) Watson; five grandchildren; and numerous extended family and friends.
