Linda Estep dies, was one of 14
Linda worked in landscaping at Andrews until retiring with a disability. She enjoyed gardening, swimming in the pool, playing with her dog and cat, and “girls’ day out.”
Her parents, sister Betty Lukacsina, and brothers Joe and Jerry Nichols preceded her in death. She is survived by her husband of 32 years, Keith Estep, daughter Jeannie and husband Jiggs Knowles, Sr., and grandsons Jiggs, Jr. and Keifer Knowles. Four brothers, John, Jack, James and Jimmy Nichols, and six sisters, Shirley Lynch, Mary Taylor, Helen Nichols-Richardson, Dottie Fletcher, Lydia Duncan, Judy Barragan and lots of nieces and nephews survive her.
Friends joined the family to celebrate Linda’s memorial and repast on Jan. 19 at American Legion Post 126, in Forestville.
