Linda L. Mahn passed away peacefully in Gilbert Arizona on May 30, 2021. She was born to John and Nellie Van Hassel, in Hart, Michigan on October 28, 1947. Linda led a very happy, active, and interesting life, filled with family, friends, and many activities such as Mahjong, Bunco, reading, spoiling grandchildren, and hosting friends and family. She never missed the opportunity for a cup of coffee and a chat. She was extremely proud to have been an Air Force wife for 22 years.
In 1966 she married Phillip Mahn, Jr. and they were lucky to celebrate over 55 years together, raising two daughters, Michelle A. Arnett (Scott) of Naperville, IL, and Kimberly I. Check (Doug) of Gilbert, AZ.
Linda was immensely proud of her two daughters, always happy to share photos or stories, but she was most proud of her six grandchildren, they were the joy and light of her eye, Brandon Arnett, Riley Arnett, Brody Check, Charlie Check, Duke Check, and Kane Check.
Linda was preceded in death by her brothers; William Van Hassel (Florence), Robert Van Hassel (Lynette), Gerald Van Hassel (Naomi) and John Van Hassel (Glenda).

I am so sorry for your loss. I know you will miss her dearly and I will too. She left us too soon. Love and God Bless Janice Cothran
She was loved by so many, myself included and will be missed by all that did know and love her.
Very sorry to hear that Linda passed away after much pain and suffering for many years. She was very brave and lived life to the fullest. She will be remembered for her tenacity in not letting the pain get in the way of enjoying life and her family.
We will always be grateful for the friendship we shared, be it ever so short of time. While our hearts are broken, it is a comfort to know she is no longer in pain. She was truly amazing. She made us smile. She made the best Irish Coffee. In our hearts she will always remain. I will never let her go. God’s Blessings to Phil, Mikki, Kim, her beloved Grandchildren and all of the family.
