Linda Paulette Miller Wilson was born on May 28, 1947 in Wichita, Kansas to George and Maxine Fussell Miller and was raised by Maxine and Bob Fullerton. She passed from this life on February 20, 2020 at the age of 72 years.
Linda grew up and attended school in Medicine Lodge, Kansas and Helena, Oklahoma. Linda was active in Pep Club and as a sophomore was crowned football homecoming queen. Linda also enjoyed riding in the car with her cousin, Janet.
On March 20, 1964, Linda began working as an overnight switchboard operator for Pioneer Telephone in Kingfisher, Oklahoma. Encouraged by Pat Rivers, a Pioneer employee she deeply respected, Linda accepted a cashier position in Drummond and moved there in 1970. She remained in Drummond until her retirement on April 28, 2006. She cherished her Pioneer family, especially Susie, Kim, Jim, Allan and Sara. Linda was a proud, grateful, and loyal employee for 42 years.
Linda’s greatest joy came from spending time with her family and friends, traveling and gambling. Some of the family’s greatest memories come from gatherings at Aunt Linda’s house where you could do no wrong and drink all the soda you cared to! Linda and cousin, Janet made 39 consecutive trips to Las Vegas, and she still talked about the family gathering in Kentucky and the recent “girls” trip to Las Vegas.
