LINDA HARDISTY UPDATE: An Obituary Surfaces
Earlier today, I made phone calls to public libraries in Battle Ground, WA, and Boise, ID, in an effort to gather more information about the passing of Linda Hardisty.
As detailed in this blog post, Linda Hardisty spent time in Japan and guested on two episodes of the popular television series Ultra Seven, produced by Tsuburaya Productions. Many Ultra-fans were curious to find out what became of the beautiful young lady who made a splash on the show.
The library in Boise qucikly found and sent me her obituary, which was published in the September 7, 1986, edition of The Idaho Statesman. Given all that we know about Linda's background at this point, it clearly matches the background of the Linda Hardisty pictured above.
If the public library in Washington State sends any relevant information my way, I will update this blog post accordingly.
UPDATE (8/12): I have received a more in-depth obituary published in The Columbian (based in Vancouver, WA) on September 1, 1986.
