LINDA’S EXTRAORDINARY LIFE
Linda T. Randolph worked at Hallmark Cards for 25+ years as a Machine Operator with a host of friends and co-workers over the years. While working at Hallmark, she had a child every other year for ten years.
Linda started dancing at a young age. In her performing career, she performed with James Brown and ‘Little’ Richard, professionally. She performed at several venues throughout the Kansas City area and beyond. Linda taught anyone who wanted to learn how to dance in her style of dance. She was also an accomplished tap dancer and could out tap many of those who challenged her! Being a woman of many talents, she also was a BEAUTIFUL whistler of extraordinary tunes. If you had the opportunity to ever hear her whistle, you were absolutely amazed! She was well liked and loved by many throughout her career; she never met a stranger. People from all over would come to see her perform and she would pack and sell out every show. Linda invented the 'twerk’ dance move that is gone on to be what it is today!
The spin-off of Linda’s dancing career was the beginning of her children whom she groomed into becoming professional performers as well. And even now, Linda’s spirit of entertaining lives on through her grandchildren.
Linda was a VERY outspoken woman of words with a caring spirit of intellect, and would tell you how she felt about you. She was very strong-minded and educated many of those she came in contact with. Being family-oriented, she taught her children while ruling with an iron fist.
Linda attended Lincoln High School and finished her education at the Manuel Training Center and became a beautician. Afterwards, she started her career with Hallmark Cards and continued her journey in becoming an EXTRAORDINARY wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, aunt, and friend.
