Linda S. Kissinger, 74, of Grangeville, Idaho, died Sunday, Jan. 24, 2021, at her home with her family by her side.

She married Ronnie Aiken on July 1, 1966. They had two children, David Aiken and Sheila Key.

She worked 30 years in the banking industry as a teller, banker, and bank manager at Wells Fargo and its predecessors. She made so many friendships over the years that it was difficult for her to retire in 2014.

She later married Don Kissinger on Feb. 28, 2015.

She will always be remembered by her kind heart and her love for life. She enjoyed traveling, camping, and spending time with her family. She loved her children and grandchildren more than life itself.
