Linda Bruner

May 12, 1945 — March 25, 2024


Linda Lou Bruner, aged 78, of Warsaw and Bradenton, Fla., gracefully earned her angel wings at 4:40 p.m. Monday, March 25, 2024. Born on May 12, 1945, to Kenneth and Louise Barkman, she was raised in Mentone alongside her siblings: brother George (Nancy) Barkman, sister Sandra (Jack) Leonard, and sister Judy Long. Linda graduated from Mentone High School in 1963, embarking on a journey of service and love that defined her life.

Initially serving as a crossing guard for the Warsaw school system, Linda later dedicated over two decades of her life to the Kosciusko prosecutor’s office, where her diligence and dedication were unwavering.

Beyond her professional commitments, Linda found joy in giving back to her community, volunteering her time generously to the Chapman Lake Conservation Club. Linda was deeply spiritual, maintaining a close connection with God. She was also an active member of the Moose Lodge. Linda’s zest for life was evident in her love for the casino, her passion for outdoor work in her landscaping, and her penchant for painting — so much so that her home was beginning to shrink in square footage.

Known for her boundless energy, Linda was a true force of nature. She found solace in watching sunsets on Chapman Lake and strolling along the beaches of Bradenton. Linda leaves behind cherished memories shared with her groups of girlfriends in Warsaw and Bradenton, as well as her dear friends Doug and Patty.

Linda is survived by her daughter, Beth (Kirk) Murphy, of Albuquerque, N.M., and son, Chad (Maggie) Bruner, of Warsaw. She also leaves behind two adored grandchildren, Keegan (Sarah) Bruner and Morgan Bruner; and two great-grandchildren, Ella and Chloe Bruner, who brought out the youthful spunk in her. Additionally, she is survived by siblings, Sandra and George; in-laws, John and Sandi Bruner; and several nieces and nephews.

On May 27, 1967, Linda married her rock, George (Fred) Bruner, at the United Methodist Church in Mentone. His love and support sustained her throughout their journey together.

Linda was preceded in death by her loving husband, George (Fred); her sister, Judy; and her parents. Following Fred’s passing, Linda found comfort in her friendship with Mike Atchison, who also preceded her in death.

In her passing, Linda leaves behind a legacy of love, laughter and boundless energy — a legacy that will continue to inspire all who knew her. May she rest in eternal peace.
