Linda Ann (Sutton) Dwyer, 60 of Eldon, Missouri passed away January 3, 2022 at St. Mary’s Hospital in Jefferson City, Missouri with her children by her side.  She was beloved by her medical staff of the past three years and many of them came to be with her family upon her passing.

Linda was born October 16, 1961 in Carthage, Illinois to Paul and Wanda (Hood) Sutton.  She graduated from Carthage Community High School in 1979.  She was united in marriage to the love of her life, Gary D. Dwyer on April 15, 1995 in Olean, Missouri.

Linda is survived by her dearly loved children: Kyle (Alicia) McGirl and Caitlin Scheiderer of Eldon, MO; son-in-law, Seth Scheiderer of Salisbury, MO; stepsons: Dino (Marcy) Dwyer, Coral Springs, FL; Chris (Jessica) Dwyer, Boyd, TX; Grandchildren: Jacksen & Sutton McGirl; Landon Scheiderer; Jessica & Cody Dwyer; Jason, Isaiah, Jordan & Titus Dwyer; brother; Gary (Rachel) Sutton, Macomb, IL; sister: Pamela (Keith) Bachman, Tucson, AZ;  brothers-in-law; Tim (Gayla) Dwyer, Osage Beach, MO; John (Kim) Dwyer, Sedona, AZ; step sister-in-law: Anne Swafford, Kansas City, MO; and her dog Ollie.

Linda was preceded in death by her husband Gary, her parents, and Gary’s parents, John Patrick Dwyer and Bonnie Swafford, and daughter-in-law Jenee Dwyer.

Linda was employed for many years with Fasco Industries of Eldon, MO and for more than 20 years with the Missouri Department of Corrections until her retirement in 2019.  Her children, stepsons and grandchildren were the light of her life.  She was an avid KC Chiefs fan and watched games whenever possible with her grandson, Jacksen.  Above all, being “Mimi” to her grandchildren was her greatest joy.
