Linda Sue (Garner) Klahr, 70, of Owasso, OK, was born on October 4, 1953, to James Cletus Garner and Lily Gertrude (Bridges) Garner, in a small copper mining community in Mesa, AZ. Her loving light has departed us, surrounded by her family on Oct. 26, 2023, in Owasso, OK.
Linda married her loving husband, Daniel, on Feb 12, 1972, at North Lewis United Pentecostal Church in Tulsa. Their true love story began when they met at his 16th birthday party, and it has continued to blossom ever since. Linda possessed a remarkable talent for music. She taught her husband to play the piano and, from an early age, showcased her skills on the accordion. Together, Linda and her husband shared a deep passion for faith, often accompanying each other in singing gospel hymns for their church. Linda's talents extended beyond music. She had a knack for sewing and crocheting, using her gift to create hats, quilts, bags, costumes, and dresses for her family. Additionally, she generously donated thousands of her masterfully sewn items to various local area cancer treatment facilities. In her garden, Linda found joy in growing countless tomatoes and massive okra. Her kitchen was a place of culinary magic, where she delighted in baking specialties like caramel corn and creating cherished memories while decorating cookies and gingerbread houses with her grandson. Her cooking was renowned, often her’s was the first dish to disappear at church potlucks and her delicious potato salad was said to be worth fighting for. Friday nights were a cherished tradition for Grandma Klahr and her grandson Allen, a bond that was truly one-of-a-kind. Their time together was filled with laughter and joy, whether they were engrossed in a game of Monopoly or Sorry or enjoying heartwarming movies like 'UP,' or 'Finding Nemo.' During the long Oklahoma summers, they created lasting memories while savoring ice cream and Grandma patiently teaching Allen how to swim. They embarked on adventures to Bingo night, the Zoo, and the Aquarium. More recently, Grandma proudly attended Allen's performances in the marching band, a testament to her unwavering support and love.
Linda leaves behind her devoted husband of 51 years, Daniel L. Klahr of Owasso; son, Donald, and his spouse, Andye; daughter, Krystal, and her spouse, Chebon; grandsons, Hunter, and Allen; father-in-law, Lee, sister-in-law, Linda; the Farwell family and Owasso Pentecostal church family.
Linda was preceded in death by her son, John David; mother, Gertrude; father, James; brother, John; and mother-in-law, June.
A celebration of her life will be held at Westwood United Pentecostal Church in Claremore at a future date.
Linda's light will forever shine in the hearts of those who knew and loved her. May her soul rest in eternal peace.
