Linda Lucille Lee, the daughter of Hap and Lucy (Bunny) Gravenish was born August 21, 1947, in Storm Lake, IA.

“I went to school with Linda at Immaculate Conception & graduated with her in the "Class of 1965". She was very active & fun to be with. (also good looking!) She was the glue that brought our class together for the I.C. All School Reunions. She was very much appreciated!

Please accept my condolences & those from the Class of 1965. She will be missed. I really enjoyed the movie tribute to Linda. Thank you! Chuck Kohn”
