Linda “Kaye” (Nease) Stidam, 64, of Indianapolis, Indiana, left this world for the next on Monday, March 5, 2018 surrounded by her family. She was born on July 13, 1953 to Ollie Emory and Audrey Ethel (Morris) Nease.
Kaye was a very loving woman who was always there to help anyone. She enjoyed spending time with her family every chance and moment she could. She had a love for her family that was endless, meeting Donald Ray Stidam, starting that family on October 3, 1970. That love grew and as the family grew into a wonderful gather of people. She enjoyed having family gatherings, never wanted a quiet house, but rather a house that full of love and laughter and especially noises of children about. She always thought an open-door place was a place to enjoy company of all people and feel at home for all who visited.
She loved to travel, taking day trips to see family, or go see anything she wanted. She also enjoyed cruises to various places. She was also known to pop-in for the day just to be around. However, none of her traveling ever stopped her for working. She was a hard worker all her life. She always wanted to make sure her family was well taken care of.
She had a love for the Lord and was baptized August 14, 2017 at the Church on the Hill Cumberland, Ky. She has been characterized as being “quick to forgive, out-going, free-spirited and happy go lucky.”
Kaye was preceded in death by her parents, Ollie Emory and Audrey Ethel (Morris) Nease, 2 brothers Larry and Darrel Nease, great grandson Silas.
She is survived by her loving husband Donald R. Stidam of Indianapolis, son Charles Stidam of Indianapolis, daughter Donetta (husband Brent) Barker of Cumberland, Ky, 2 brothers David and Greg Nease, 5 sisters Charlotte Rhodes, Sherry Johnson, Shelia Sexton, Teresa ‘Gail’ Gilliam, and Gwen Caldwell, 9 grandchildren Shane, Corey, Chaz, Lakin, Josilyn, Foster, Devin, Zach and Alex, and 3 great grandchildren Hayden, Brinlee, and Penelope along with a host of extended family and friends.
She will be missed by all who knew and loved her.
