Linda Wilson

Obituary of Linda M Wilson

Please share a memory of Linda to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

Our family lost one of our most beloved members on February 14, 2022, when Linda Wilson passed away peacefully in Blairstown, NJ, after a long illness. In addition to her husband, Charles, Linda’s survivors include their children, Beth, Pete, and Adele, her two brothers, Edward and Chris, and 10 grandchildren. 

Born May 15, 1947, Linda was a lifelong believer in education. A graduate of Notre Dame College, she went on to earn her Master’s degree from George Washington University while she worked fulltime as a high school special education administrator. Holding firmly that travel is a wonderful teacher, Linda spent two decades learning to acclimate to different cultures and speaking foreign languages as she supported her husband’s military career, which took them both around the world. In her teaching capacity, Linda touched many lives, but she most loved being a wife, mother, and grandmother to her family. 

Linda will be remembered for her innate sweetness and unfailing kindness, with a soft spot for little animals. Strong and gracious, she was deeply wise, asking us all to heed the “better angels of our nature” and never failing to do so herself. Though she lives on in our hearts, she will be deeply missed.  

A mass will be held at Saint Anthony of Padua Roman Catholic church in Akron, Ohio followed by her funeral at All Souls Cemetery in Chardon, Ohio.  

Linda is entrusted to the care of Newbaker Funeral Home, 200 Route 94, Blairstown, NJ 07825.
