Linda Langfitt Yakel


Linda Yakel, age 75, of Billings, left us to be with Jesus on March 2, 2019.

Linda was born on June 7, 1943, in Bremerton, Washington, the daughter of Edwin and Vivian Langfitt.

She was married on Oct. 19, 1984, to her husband of 34 years, Tom Yakel.

All of those who loved Linda, especially those from Cornerstone Community Church, knew that Linda devoted her life to spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ to everyone she met and loved.

She loved her family, as well as her many four-legged friends. Linda also enjoyed crafts, sewing, quilting and painting.

She is survived by her husband, Tom; her children, Karri Vialpando of Kalispell, Mike Bangert (Vicke) of Billings, Donna (Dennis) Drummer of Hazel Green, Wisconsin; her sister, Janet Mullin, also of Billings; and seven grandchildren and six great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her mother and father, Edwin and Vivian Langfitt.

The family would like to give thanks to the Advanced Care Hospital of Montana for their compassionate care and support, as well as all of those from Cornerstone Community Church who loved her very much.

Services will be at 5 p.m. Sunday, March 17, at Cornerstone Community Church, 4525 Grand Ave.

  1. Tom- we are so saddened by knowing that Linda is gone from this earthly home but we rejoice that she is in the heavenly home with Jesus. We love you both and will pray for your strength during this time. Wes and Janet Coy

  2. My prayers go out to the family,she was wonderful person,I worked with her many years ago,she will be missed

  3. Jesus said ” I go to prepare a place for you” We say ” she was”, we should say she is! She is more alive today than she has ever been, she is at the feet of Jesus, her Savior and Lord, she is free from all pain. I look forward to seeing my sister in the Lord, and that will happen. It’s not what you take with you when you leave, it’s what you leave behind. Linda left a legacy, a legacy of a faithful wife, a legacy of being a Christ like example of what it means to follow Jesus, a legacy of always being ready to share the Jesus she loved. That legacy will live on in the lives that she touched.

  4. With great sorrow and joy I give my dear love Linda to our Father,I thank God for all the time we had together. My mind can not reason why she had to go but my heart rejoices knowing she is without pain, and that she is with her Father and my Father, I will always love you Linda
