Lindekugel was born Sept. 17, 1926, at Cozad to Reginald E. and Cora M. (Stauffer) Davis. She graduated from Gothenburg High School.
On July 6, 1945, she was united in marriage to Ivan Lindekugel at North Platte. To this union, three children were born. The couple resided in the North Platte area briefly before moving to Hershey, where her husband drove truck.
She an her husband eventually moved to Cozad where they bought the Davis Sand and Gravel Company from her parents.
Lindekugel was employed with the Cozad Telephone Company and the Cozad Local, but the most important job she ever held, was that of a stay-at-home mom, said family members. She was a loving and dedicated wife and mother, and poured everything she had into her family.
Her husband preceded her in death in 1997, and in most recent years, she had resided at the Golden Living Center in Cozad, where she enjoyed the residents and staff, according to family members.
Lindekugel was a very family-oriented person and loved to entertain and cook big meals, always seeming to have enough no matter how many visitors she had at her home, the family said. Guests and family alike were often treated to warm homemade bread and her famous apple pie. She undoubtedly spent some of her happiest moments with a house full of family. She also maintained very close relationships with her siblings through the years.
She was a long-time member of the Cozad Christian Church.
