Obituary Via Paul Young Funeral Home
Grace L. Linkenhoker (nee Schaeper) passed away on Sunday, January 31, 2021 at the age of 93. Grace was the devoted wife of Charles Linkenhoker (97) for over 68 years. The deep bond of their marriage was an inspiration to all around them. She was the beloved mother of Carol Hayward (Don) and Joan Lewis (Tristan), the loving grandmother of Matthew Huelsman (Amber Bremer), Brynley Lewis, and Brendan Lewis, and the proud great-grandmother of Elizabeth, Benjamin, Karina, Quentin, and Robert. She is also survived by her dear sister, Barbara Ann Strahan. Grace was preceded in death by her beloved parents, Lester and Eleanor Schaeper (nee Steins) and her brothers, Kenneth and John Schaeper. Grace was a lifelong Catholic, attending St. Bartholomew church for many years. Everywhere Grace went, people quickly became fond of her, recognizing her sweet and gentle soul. She had a sharp mind and a brilliant, dry sense of humor. She will be missed more than words can say.
The family will have a private funeral with a larger gathering later in the year. Memorial contributions, if desired, can be made to either The Free Store Food Bank of Cincinnati or Hospice of Cincinnati. Paul R. Young Funeral Home (Mt. Healthy) is assisting the family.
