Our beloved daughter, sister, mother and grandmother lost her 10-year battle with ovarian cancer on Tuesday, June 9, 1998.
Born August 13, 1943 in Twin Falls, ID to Raymond and Virginia Butler. Married Nickolas Paul Edgar June 15, 1963. Later divorced, but remained close friends.Linda devoted 17 years of her life to the University of Utah Athletics Department and hundreds of student athletes. She was a true "UTE" and treasured her friendships with the athletes and staff.
Survived by parents; sister, Patricia Shutt (Ken), Atascadero, CA; daughters, Maria King (Steve), West Jordan, UT; Kristina Zelenyanszky (Steve), SLC, UT; granddaughters, Lauren and Sarah King and Baby Hannah Zelenyanszky (expected in September); aunts, uncles and cousins. She will be dearly missed by her family and friends.
The family would like to express thanks to the U of U Athletics Dept. for their support during her illness, to Drs. Chris Jolles and Cara Mickelson for their loving care in her fight to live, and to her many friends and neighbors for their love and support.
Knowing Linda's desire to see her grandchildren have the opportunity for a higher education, loving friends have established a Special Savings Fund for them. In lieu of flowers and to honor the memory of Linda, donations may be sent to: University Credit Union, FBO Edgar Grandchildren, 7220 South Highland Drive, SLC, UT 84121.
