She lived in Woodinville with her family for the last 49 years and was a substitute special education aide in Northshore School District. Linda and her husband lived for their camping trips along the Olympic Peninsula. Hunting for agates, fishing, finding meaningful gifts to share and eating out. She especially loved Kalaloch and Ruby Beach. She was a strong woman who stayed true to her convictions and loved her friends and family well. All of those living near her knew her for her wit, kindness, and gift giving over the holidays, whether it be thoughtfully purchased or hand made gifts. Her neighbors were much loved and a very important part of her life.

A memorial is scheduled for December 15 at 2:00 PM at Meadowbrook Church 17944 NE 65th Street, Redmond, WA, 98052. In honor of Linda, the family would like to ask those attending the memorial to wear something red to represent Christmas, her favorite holiday and color.

    Great tribute to my friend! My heart goes out to her family & praying they find peace as they remember good times. We had lots of those times & being near her family makes her loss much more tolerable for me. Love you all forever!

    Missing mom each moment… Thank you to all who loved her as much as we did!

    The sun is setting,
    The waves glitter and light dances upon them.
    The wind whips through and gulls cry, calling the night, the end of day.
    I will forever see you here,
    Walking upon the beach,
    Glancing at the debris left upon the shore,
    Searching for treasures.
    You have left us with a love of the beach and with a deep understanding the simple gift of giving.
    You have left us with a family to hold on to and memories that will help us laugh when the grief is deep and dark.

    Now, you watch us from above, with Dad and all who have gone before us.

    Today, when I look to the sunset, the view has changed,
    For now, you are in the vibrant colors of the sky as the sun sinks below the horizon.
    Your glorious smile and that glint of humor in your eyes are now what sparkles upon the waves.

    Thank you for being my mom, my confident, my friend.
