She is survived by her husband, John and two daughters, Tracy Dickson and her husband, John, of Deep River and Jodi Picard and her fiancé, Ed Hancock, of Middletown.

Linda was raised in Killingworth and attended Morgan School in Clinton. She spent many years as a cook in Connecticut and Vermont where she lived for several years. Linda was a wonderful cook and her highly guarded recipe for cheesecake was legendary. Moving back to Connecticut to be closer to her family, Linda began work at Whelen Engineering where she was employed up until the time of her death. She had developed many friendships with her coworkers at Whelen and they enjoyed hearing her hilarious stories about her antics and those of her grandchildren. Linda had a unique and hysterical sense of humor. She enjoyed music, often passing along her favorite CDs to her daughters and she still attended rock concerts whenever the opportunity arose. In addition, she enjoyed eating out and visiting the casino. Besides her parents, she was predeceased by her beloved golden retrievers, Maggie and Jake. Visitation will held at the Robinson, Wright & Weymer Funeral Home, 34 Main St. in Centerbrook on Monday, Aug. 6 from 5 to 7 p.m. Linda's memorial service will follow at 7 p.m.
