Linda Lee (Knutson)
Linda E. Lee, age 60, of Janesville died unexpectedly at her home on Sunday, May 6, 2018. She was born in Janesville on January 22, 1958, the daughter of Robert and Norma (Buehl) Knutson. Linda graduated from Parker High School in 1976 and later married Cris Lee on February 14, 2000. Linda went on to Cosmetology School and later opened her own business, “Band of Gold Bridal Shop”, a dream that came true. She was a proud wife, mother of two children, a grandmother to four darling grandchildren, and a wonderful daughter and sister.
Linda loved her family dearly and loved being at family events. She was always willing to lend a helping hand to those who needed it, expecting nothing in return. Linda enjoyed going on vacation, especially her trips to Puerta Vallarta, and being near the ocean. She raised Boston Terriers and Chihuahuas, while also being fond of all kinds of animals. When she was younger, she enjoyed bowling and playing softball. Her smile, laughter, and entertaining personality will be missed by all who knew her.
She is survived by her husband: Cris; two children: Amber (Jason) Buster of Janesville and Adam (Erin) Guernsey of Waukesha, WI; step-son: Mitchell Lee of Janesville; grandchildren who she adored: Zoe and Ryker Buster, and Logan and Ethan Guernsey. She is further survived by her mother and father: Robert and Norma Knutson of Janesville; siblings: Shelby (Lewis) Wallisch of Beloit, Robert (Jan) Knutson, Jr. of Beloit, Susan Knutson of Ft. Wayne, IN, and David (Ann) Knutson of Beloit; her mother-in-law: Virginia Lee of Janesville; several nieces, nephews, other relatives, and many dear friends; and her beloved dogs: Ally, Zuzu, Amos, and Lilly. She was predeceased by her grandparents, and father-in-law: James Lee.
Funeral services will be held at 3:00 PM on Saturday, May 12, 2018 at the Whitcomb – Lynch Funeral Home with Rev. Jerry Amstutz officiating. Visitation will be on Saturday from noon until the time of the service at the funeral home. Memorials would be greatly appreciated if they were made to Linda’s family for a memorial to be established later.
