Linda has passed!

Post by mraitch »

Recently was told that Linda - den mother - has passed - apparently from a heart attack - ironic since she was a health professional.

She left behind the legacy of lower ball joints - a great contribution!

I wondered at Solvang where she was.

No idea of any funerary arrangements - will post if I know!

If anyone has memories to share - please post.

Sad news, indeed. A very capable and caring roadster owner, one who truly felt a passion for her car. Suggest the annually posted topic of "Christmas/Hanukkah etc. Gifts for the Roadster Owner" be dedicated to her memory.

RIP, Our Fair Lady of Fairladys

Sad news indeed, I remember Linda posted quite a bit when I 1st joined, she sent me several PM's. I thought she was a great asset to the group and always looked forward to meeting her. RIP Linda.

Sad news, way too young. Of course, I just joined, so I never knew her, but I see she is top five active posters so I'm sure she contributed a lot to the forum. God speed!

Wow, so sorry and sad to read this! I can relate to the heart attack deal if that is indeed what took her... way to SOON! Â beloved member of our 311s family, just gone too soon. Our love and support to all family members. Thanks Linda for all you gave us.

Rarely meet Roadster family in person, but get to know them virtually. Always seemed like a kind soul who always tried to keep us positive and inline...will truly be missed, RIP den mother.

Yes me too
Guess she still had the Roadster?
It would be nice if another woman enjoyed the car , since there are few that have them, bet Linda would like that.
I hope it wasn't the result of being overworked my nieghbor is in healthcare and has said this

I had the pleasure of having Linda as my co-pilot on a group run up to Newcomb's ranch.

I always looked forward to seeing her at Solvang and chatting. And her ribbing of Ted was classic!

Godspeed Linda.
