Linda enjoyed trips to Maine and the Nubble Lighthouse at Cape Neddick, in particular.  She was a past member of the Sylvan Star-Skenesborough Chapter 122, Order of the Eastern Star.

Survivors are her two sons, Joshua Park of Queensbury and Theron Park Jr. and his wife, Daniella, of Yonkers; her two stepchildren, James Park and Lori Marelle, both of Wells, Vt.; and a brother, Ron Howland of Rutland, Vt. Also surviving are her beloved grandchildren, Taylor and Melissa, as well as six step-grandchildren.  Linda was also survived by her special friend and longtime companion, Jim Buxton.

A graveside funeral service will be held on Saturday, Dec. 18, at 10 a.m. at the Wells Cemetery in Wells, Vt., with the Rev. Art Peters officiating.
