On Jan. 18, 1965, at John Day, Stanley Titus and Mary Claussen welcomed Linda into the world. Shortly after her birth, in 1966, the family moved to Baker City where she attended high school. She lived for a brief time in Haines, Portland, and Huntington but she spent most of her life in Baker City.
Linda, or Lynndee as she was known to her friends, spent time as a child with her grandmothers, Rosa Macy and Bertha Ziermann, with whom she made doll clothes, learned to crochet, tat, and just really enjoyed their company. In her teenage years she loved to ride horses and visit with her friends.
She was a proud mother to her five children, sometimes working three jobs at a time to support them. Lynndee loved being a grandmother and spending as much time as she could with her grandchildren. She was a hard worker, working since the age of 15 in elder care, nursing homes, and in private homes. She also worked in various restaurants and truck stops. Most recently Lynndee worked for DHS in home health care and mental health.
Later in life Lynndee was blessed to have found Arden Hollinger, who was her beloved husband and friend who was always supportive. Lynndee and Arden enjoyed bowling, camping, playing pool, and having good times with their friends.
Lynndee is survived by her loving husband, Arden Hollinger of Baker City; her children, William Olp of Austin, Texas, Robert Olp of Baker City, William (Virginia) Rachau of Imbler, Marymae Rachau of Baker City and Thomas Rachau of Baker City; her mother, Mary Titus of Baker City; her siblings, Stanley Benjamin Titus Jr. of Baker City, Lelah Masters of Boise, Maryanne Pecaut of Redding, California, and Nancy Lee Smithen of Kelso, Washington; nine grandchildren and many close cousins, nieces, nephews, and many friends.
She was preceded in death by her father, Stanley Titus, and her brother, Timothy John Titus Sr.
