Read more about the life story of Linda and share your memory.
Linda was born in Leominster, Massachusetts, in 1943. She was the middle child of Emile & Verna Roberts. She had two sisters, Rita, the older, and Judy, the younger. Linda met her to-be husband Jim while in high school. They married on her birthday on May 24th, 1963. Jim was drafted into the Army during the Vietnam War and was stationed at Fort Bragg in North Carolina. When Jim was honorably discharged in 1965 from the Army, they moved back to Massachusetts and rented a second-floor apartment in a house on Elm Street. Linda and Jim later bought the same house in 1968. They had her first and only child Timothy also in 1968. Linda quickly made friends with many of her neighbors. Linda Kennedy was a good friend who lived across the street, and so was close neighbor Emily Pierce. Linda worked part-time at West Side Pharmacy for then-owner Jim Montrenec and later Charlie Paces, whom she also befriended. In 1984, they sold the house on Elm St and purchased a house on Stuart Ave in Leominster. Her son Tim moved down to Florida in the mid-90s, and Linda & Jim soon followed to Vero Beach. They first rented, then bought a home in 1998. Jim worked for a short time at Pipe Tites before retiring to play golf. Linda worked at Lowes for several years in the office and later retired. In 2008, Linda and Jim celebrated their 50 years of marriage by taking a cruise. Her husband Jim passed away in 2014 from heart complications after many months/years of Linda taking care of him. Linda continued to live on independently at her home in Vero gardening, thrifting, traveling, and doing puzzles for many years with help from her son Tim and her dog Nicky. Linda lived a very happy, good life. She'll be missed greatly by her son Tim, daughter-in-law Wendy, and many neighbors, family, and friends. Linda's request was to be cremated and didn't want a service.
