The Odessa Record -

Linda May Dymond


Linda May Dymond was born September 12, 1941, in Odessa to Richard and Anna (Hemmerling) Kuch. She passed away June 18, 2017, in Spokane. Linda grew up as a farmer's daughter with her two brothers, Melvin and Paul Kuch. Linda graduated from Odessa High School and went on to get her Associate of Arts from Northwest Bible College and Bachelor of Arts from Northwest Nazarene College. She then attended Azusa College, where she was five credits short of her Masters. She taught second grade before getting married. Her husband, Richard, was in the Navy and they lived in many places before settling in Lamona, Wash., after he retired from the Navy. She was a devoted wife, mother and grandma, and always a teacher at heart. She taught Sunday school for many years and was always looking for opportunities to educate children. She shared her husband's love of museums, taking her children to any she and Richard stumbled upon in their travels. Linda was always active in the church, attending an Assembly of God church wherever she and Richard were stationed. Linda's hobby was people. Throughout her life, there was always another family or two that she took a special interest in, being sure to celebrate birthdays, special occasions and just spend time with them. She loved to give gifts, especially to children. Linda wanted to lend a helping hand whenever she could, like teaching her good friends and neighbors, the Hutterite women of Lamona, to drive – even if it was forbidden. Linda is survived by her husband of 47 years Richard Dymond, her daughter Lynann (Rob) Taylor of Spokane, her son Robert (Sally) Dymond of Redcliffe, Australia and her four grandchildren Alexandra, Mason, Lauren and Hayden, who were each the apple of her eye. Linda will be missed greatly by her family and friends for her generous spirit and her love of life. A memorial will be held at Mountain View Assembly of God, 633 E. Magnesium Road, Spokane, on July 5 at 11 a.m. Online condolences may be posted at
