Monday, April 18, 2011

Linda (Disque) Kinney, 69, of Evansville, passed away Thursday, April 14, 2011 at her home.

Linda was born and raised in Sandborn, and graduated from Sandborn High School in 1959. She attended Indiana University for two years, studying music education, before leaving to raise her family.

For the past 25 years, Linda worked tirelessly and energetically as a real estate broker. She began her career in 1986 with Emge Realty. She enjoyed her work and was passionate about her clients, many of whom became her extended family. She was especially proud of her role in working with many Toyota families as they relocated to our area. She was committed to helping these families become part of the tri state community. Since 2007 she was a broker with F.C. Tucker Emge, and continued doing the work she so enjoyed through last week.

Prior to her real estate career, she was an active volunteer in her community. She was involved with the Junior League of Evansville for many years, and continued as a Sustainer, and she was President of the Evansville Museum Guild. For many years she taught Junior Great Books to school-age children. She had great interest in state and local politics, and she enjoyed spending time with her brother, Charlie, at their family farm in Sandborn. Her favorite pastimes included spending time with her beloved children and grandchildren, traveling, music and antiquing.

Linda was preceded in death by her parents, Dorothy and Harley Disques, and her brother Joseph Disque.

She is survived by her daughter, Rebecca Gamble and husband Marc, of Shelburne, Vt.; son, Gregory Kinney and wife Victoria Huang of Seattle, Wash.; grandchildren Noah, Nathan and Joshua Gamble, Violet and Mia Kinney, and brother Charles Disque of Indianapolis.
