Longtime Oak Harbor resident Linda Jennerjohn passed away at her home surrounded by her loving family on Monday May 28, 2018. She was 71 years of age. Linda was born on Sept. 27, 1946 in Portland, Ore. to Leonard Rollag and Genevieve LaCrosse Rollag. The family moved to Oak Harbor in 1956 when Leonard was offered the opportunity to go into partnership with Mel Boyer and Wes Maylor at Boyer Ford Sales.
Linda was a 1965 graduate of Oak Harbor High School. Before and after high school, Linda could frequently be found working at the family-owned business, Panchos Restaurant, serving “UFOs” and the “best chili rellenos for miles around.”
After the business sold, Linda was hired on as a bus driver for the Oak Harbor School District, a position she held for 30 years. Linda loved the students she transported and avidly followed their progress through their years of schooling. Her final years were spent driving the bus for special needs students.
Linda married her best friend, Paul Jennerjohn, in Oak Harbor on Oct. 1, 1977. They had recently celebrated their 41st wedding anniversary.
Everyone that knew Linda loved her. With her hearty, infectious laugh and love of people, all would always enjoy themselves when she was around. Friends describe her as a warm, generous spirit, one in a million, and a loyal person who would do anything for her friends. She will be greatly missed by her family and all who knew her.
Linda is survived by her husband Paul. She was preceded in death by her mother Jenny, her father Leonard, and two brothers Monty and Harry Rollag.
A celebration of life will be held on Saturday, June 23, 2018 from 1:30-4 p.m. at the Oak Harbor Elks Lodge. The family suggests memorials to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, PO Box 1000, Dept. 142, Memphis, TN 38148-0142 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
