Obituary of Linda Carol Juilfs
Linda Carol Juilfs, 73, of Independence, KY peacefully passed away enveloped in the love of her family on July 20, 2021 at Hospice Care of St. Elizabeth.
The daughter of the late Orville and Maggie (Burns) Linville, she was born in Cynthiana, KY on August 1, 1947. She attended Boone County High School in Florence, KY. She married Kenneth R. Juilfs on February 16, 1968 in Covington, KY. Linda’s entire life was devoted to caring for others. Her love language was food. She was a fabulous cook with many signature dishes. Linda was always looking forward to a cookout or any other kind of gathering where she could feed people. She worked in hospitality at the Florence Hilton for 31 years where she was beloved by her coworkers and friends. Linda found pleasure in fishing with her husband, doing word finds and crossword puzzles, and catching up on the monthly Reader’s Digest. She was always tending to her beautiful flower garden (which may also have contained a tomato plant or two).
Linda is preceded in death by her mother and father and her brother Richard “Bud” Linville. Surviving to carry on her love and light are her beloved husband of 53 years Kenneth R. Juilfs; her loving children Kenneth L. (Lucretia) Juilfs of Falmouth, KY, Billy Juilfs of Grand Canyon National Park, AZ, Shirley (Dale) Palladino of Burlington, KY; grandchildren Tricia L. Juilfs, Ashley N. Juilfs, Christopher A. Palladino, Cassidy L. Palladino, and Jasmine Juilfs, great-grandchildren Jolene A. Juilfs and Harley Q. Mays; caring siblings Judy (Larry) Cooper of Falmouth, KY and Delores Geiman of Florence, KY; along with numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, and cherished friends.
