Linda Ellen (Smith) Wilhelm, 65 of Lexington Oregon passed away surrounded by her family at her daughters home in Irrigon on Thursday April 6th, 2023 from cancer.
She was born February 22nd, 1958, in Burns Oregon to parents Howard and Ernestine Smith.
Linda grew up on a ranch along Willow Creek and graduated from Arlington High School.
She married her high school sweetheart Ronald “Ron” Wilhelm on July 30th, 1977, in Pendleton Oregon. They bought a home in Lexington Oregon soon after and that is where they raised their four children: Damien, Samantha, Rhonda, and Veronica.
Linda loved her family and friends more than anything. Her most treasured times were making memories and spending time with them. She was passionate about the outdoors and loved being in nature, which included camping, the beach, gardening, mushroom hunting, spending time in the mountains, time around the campfire and thunderstorms on a warm summer night. She enjoyed coloring, reading, listening to classic rock music and absolutely loved watching all things WWE.
Survivors include her husband of 46 years Ron, her son Damien Wilhelm of Lexington, daughters Samantha Linkel (Sean) of Hermiston, Rhonda Acock (Zac) of Irrigon, and Veronica Wilhelm of Portland, three grandsons Zane, Jacob and Trew, two granddaughters Ali and Zoey, two sisters Peggy and Cinda and a brother Whit.
Linda is preceded in death by her parents Howard and Ernestine Smith.
A celebration of life with close family will be held at the beach. Memorial contributions can be made to Pioneer Memorial Hospice, PO Box 97, Heppner, OR 97836.
