Linda Clair (Boggs) Maaske, 81, died on September 26, 2021, at Phelps Memorial Health Center in Holdrege, Nebraska. Linda was born on July 2, 1940 in Lexington, Nebraska, to Darrel and Clara (Jolliffe) Boggs, the third of four children. She graduated from Lexington High School in 1959 and worked at a dime store earning 50 cents an hour.

She married Wayne Maaske on December 7, 1963, at the Berean Fundamentalist Church in Lexington, Nebraska and they would go on to have two children, Matthew and Lisa. Linda had various jobs in her life, such as waitressing at the Bertrand Cafe, factory work at Plectron and serving coffee at Four Seasons Floral. She also attended classes at Kearney State College. Most of all, Linda shared in the livelihood of farming for over 50 years with Wayne.

Linda enjoyed socializing, drinking coffee and keeping up with the latest news amongst friends. She liked driving her newest Buick, enjoying her grand puppies, exercising with friends in Elwood, and watching Netflix and old westerns. She was known for celebrating her birthday for an entire week.

Linda helped teach Sunday School for many years. She was a member of the Awana’s club in Lexington.

Linda was preceded in death by her parents, older sister, Artie Smith of Lexington; and younger brother, Frank Boggs of Bertrand.

She is survived by her husband, Wayne of 58 years; her children: Matthew Maaske of Elwood; and Lisa Snider of Smithfield; her grandchildren: Liam Snider; Leyton Snider; and Joslyn Sayer; her sister, Darla Bye of Overton, Nebraska; and a host of nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

Our family would like to thank the medical staff and Pastors in Kearney, Omaha & Holdrege, who worked tirelessly providing her medical and spiritual care.
