Linda Ellen Comstock Stewart died peacefully at home on Sunday, October 18th, 2020 in Columbus, Ohio at the age of 74
Linda was born on August 10th, 1946 in Columbus, Ohio to Rollin & Julia Comstock. She graduated from Hilliard High School in 1964. She worked for the state of Ohio as an administrative assistant for Air Quality & Development and then the Ohio Ethics Commission when she retired with 30 years of service.
Linda was an avid reader. She loved Stephen King and owned every book ever written or published by any of her favorite authors. She was a huge fan of The Walking Dead, Sons of Anarchy, The Game of Thrones and all of the criminal/law shows. Vampire movies and Jaws were also on her list of favorites. She loved music. We’ll never listen to the Scorpions, John Fogerty and Cher without thinking of her. She loved to crochet, craft and make personalized greeting cards. She always sent handmade cards to family & friends for every occasion. She had a love for fashion and never left home without every matching accessory. She was very honest and would give you her opinion on anything & everything, whether you wanted it or not. J She loved giraffes, sunflowers and lady bugs and she surrounded herself with everything she loved.
Linda is survived by her husband Harley Stewart of 19 years who she would say “he is the sweetest man.”
Linda left behind her only daughter, Stephanie Ann Biedenharn, who she lovingly always referred to as “My Little Girl.” Linda was well known by many of Stephanie’s friends often calling all of them “little girl” too.
Linda was fortunate to have a son-in-law, Michael “Mikey” Biedenharn, who she loved like her own son. She trusted him to always take care of her little girl and she thought he was the best dad in the world.
Linda was also known by her favorite name –NANA. She was known as “Nana” to her grandsons, Hayden Michael Biedenharn and Cole Edward Biedenharn. She called them her “Sunshine boys.” Nana said they were her sunshine. Nana showered them with many gifts of love every time she saw them. She was so proud of them. Nana was also happy to have Ashley Hart Biedenharn join our family last year.
Linda is also survived by her sister Nancy (Dave) Gillilan of Hilliard, Ohio.
She is preceded in death by her parents, Rollin & Julia Comstock of Hilliard, Ohio.
The family would like to thank Visiting Angel caregivers, especially Megan Higgins for her genuine care for Linda, as well as the entire Capital City Hospice staff for their compassionate care.
Honoring Linda’s wishes, there will be no calling hours or funeral service.
In lieu of flowers, should friends and family desire, expressions of sympathy may be sent to the family at 3533 Leap Road, Hilliard, Ohio 43026.
Linda will be missed by everyone, friends & family. She was one of a kind.
Mom, we always said I love you at the end of every conversation. She always said, “I love you more.” And now that I have the last word I can say I love YOU more! But also in the words of Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz, our favorite movie to watch every year together, “I think I’ll will miss you most of all.” XOXO, Your Little Girl.
