Linda Jean Drielick, age 68 and a longtime resident of Kosciusko County, passed away surrounded by family on Tuesday, June 29, 2021. She had been bravely battling cancer for several weeks.
The daughter of Forrest Bonham and Nancy (Harter) Bonham, Linda was born on May 1, 1953 in Marion, Indiana. She spent her formative years there and graduated from high school in Marion. Professionally, she was retired, having spent many of her working years at Kimble Glass in Warsaw.
Linda was a vibrant, funny person who was generally carefree and loved being around people. She especially loved time spent with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren and never missed their events. She was easy to get along with but also opinionated and strong willed. She had a strong faith in Christ and actively attended Warsaw Community Church. She enjoyed helping others where she could and was a fan of President Donald Trump.
Those who survive with memories to cherish include significant other, Galen Noel of Claypool; daughter, Lisa (husband, Lance) Perry of Warsaw; and nine grandchildren: Becky (husband, Wade) Cave of Rochester, Lauren (husband, Andy) Miller of Warsaw, Landan Perry of Lafayette, Lia Perry of Warsaw, Leytan Perry of Warsaw, Liam Perry of Warsaw, Lorelle Perry of Warsaw, Lilyan Perry of Warsaw and Levi Perry of Warsaw. Also surviving are two great-grandchildren, Chance and Henry; five siblings and their families including sisters: Pat Kearney, Marla Velasquez, Stephanie Linton and Brenda Lewelling and brother: Tom Bonham. She was preceded in passing by a son, John Minnick, a brother, Mike Bonham and an infant brother, John Bonham.
Titus Funeral Home and Cremation Services of Warsaw is entrusted with Linda’s care. Her family is celebrating her life during a private memorial service later this month. In lieu of flowers, those wishing to express their sympathy are encouraged to give to Warsaw Community Church.
