Linda Sue (Wright) Kenyon

Linda passed away on August 13, 2021 after a long and courageous battle with dementia.
Linda was born on January 31, 1952 to DeWayne and Barbara Wright, where she grew up on her beloved family farm.  Linda was a country girl through and through.  Linda graduated from Maple Valley High School in 1970. Linda and Mike Kenyon were married on August 28, 1971, after a romance that began in 8th grade (YES 8th grade!).
Linda was the most genuine person anyone could ever wish to meet. Linda never had an enemy.  She did not like confrontation and would always find the best and gentlest way to resolve the situation.
Linda was gifted with not one but two green thumbs which probably were inherited from her father.  When her aunt Dema opened “Grandma’s Greenery” in Nashville, Linda went to work for her.  After a few pointers from her aunt, Linda went on to become an award-winning floral designer.  Her love and skill for all things floral and plants became legendary in the Mid-Michigan area.
If anyone asked Linda what meant the most to her, it would be her love of family.  Her own immediate family, her family of friends, who are near and far, and the Wright family. she cherished so much being born into the Wright family and the love and memories that she carried with her all of her life.
She was preceded in death by her parents, DeWayne and Barbara; infant son, J. Patrick; brother-in-law, Rick Rochester.
Linda is survived by her husband, Mike; daughter, Sarah Kopulos; and son, Patrick (Christy) Kenyon; sisters, Debra (Dave) Ressler, Cindy Rochester, Denise (Randy) Kendra; and eight awesome grandchildren, Drew and Cal Kopulos, Annabel, Trey, Lucy, J. Loyal, and Vivian Kenyon.
Goodbye to the most beautiful person, inside and out.
“She is all that I said before and always a little after.
She is all that she can be in everything that is done.
She is all the flowers in the field, and all the jewels in my eyes.
She is a world within myself, which nothing can conceal.”
A celebration of life for Linda will be held September 18, 2021 at 1 p.m. at the Nazarene Church in Nashville.
