PRICE - Our loving mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and friend, Linda Lou Olsen Vuksinick Silvis, age 72, passed away peacefully Oct. 1, 2012 at her home in Price.
She was born Oct. 31, 1939 in Price to Birnell and Lanora Averett Olsen.

Linda loved her family and enjoyed spending time with her grandchildren and friends. She enjoyed her trips to Wendover and watching the Denver Broncos. Linda enjoyed doing yard work and tending to her flowers.
One of her greatest joys was shopping and playing Sunday bingo at the VFW. She was the Department of Utah president of the VFW Ladies Auxiliary from 1997 to 1998. She would often refer to her cruise to the Carribean with her children as a "once in a lifetime trip with all her kids". Her last fond memory was her trip to the ranch in Wyoming. She will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved her.
The family wishes to extend a special thanks to Sam McGinnis and Kenny Brown for the love and support shown to Linda over the years.
