Linda Lee Rollag Jennerjohn
September 27, 1946 – May 28, 2018
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 September 27, 1946 in Portland, Oregon 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 October 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 at a later date. The family suggests memorials to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, PO Box 1000, Dept. 142, Memphis, TN 38148-0142 or email@example.com.
