Linda Hass, 78, of Havre died Monday, March 31, 2003, at a Billings hospital of complications from a stroke she had in 1995.
Linda's wishes were to be cremated with a private family memorial service.
Linda was born in Sidney on Sept. 26, 1924, to David and Ida (Schultz)
McConaha. She graduated from Savage High School.
Following graduation, she joined the U.S. Army and served 2 1/2 years as a medical technician.
Following her honorable discharge, she returned to Sidney where she met and married David Hass in 1950. They lived on the family farm for a period of time, and she worked as a waitress and cook at various restaurants, traveled with her husband in his trucking business, and more recently worked as a home health care provider for 10 years. It was during this period Linda suffered a stroke which led to her retirement.
Linda was always ready to help others. She spent time with her children and grandchildren. She loved quilting and reading until her eyesight failed her, and at that time began listening to books on tape.
Survivors include her children, Debby Sowders of Billings, Lisa Nunn of Laurel, Diane Matthews of Utah, Teresa Hass of San Diego, Calif., and Sharon Malan of Havre; sister, Kathy Smith of Heron; 12 grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren. Her parents and her infant son, Richard, preceded Linda in death.
Dahl Funeral & Cremation Service in Billings is in charge of arrangements.
