On Sunday morning, March 28, 2021, Linda Flo Kestner, loving mother and grandmother, entered into eternal rest at age 82 at the Fort Walton Beach Medical Center. Linda was born to Harry and Helen (Hester) Gillespie of Empire, Ohio on January 26, 1939. After graduating from Toronto High School in Ohio and traveling as a military spouse, Linda made her home in Mary Esther, Florida, where she resided in the same house for almost 50 years. Linda also worked for the City of Mary Esther during the late 1980s. Aside from loving her many dogs, Linda’s biggest passion in life was watching her children and grandchildren participate in school activities and athletics, particularly baseball, football, and the marching band.
