Memories Timeline


  1. Karl, Karen, Lisa, and entire family: We are saddened to learn of Linda’s passing. Over the 35 years we spent as their neighbors, we shared many laughs at holiday parties or sitting in the yard or around the fire pit. We pray for all of you as you move through your final good byes. She will definitely be missed by many.

    Joanne & Paul Randall

  2. There’s so much to say about this wonderful woman. She was loving, kind, loyal and funny without even trying. She was the matriarch of our family. It goes without saying, that she was deeply loved and will be deeply missed.

  3. Karl, My condolences to you and your family, we’ve been neighbors for a long time and Linda will be dearly missed. It’s never easy to lose a loved one, but God will see you through this time of grief. My prayers for you and the family Anne Tougas
