Linda Annabel Laws McCulloch

1930 - 2013 Obituary Condolences
Linda Annabel Laws McCulloch Obituary
Carmel – Linda Annabel Laws McCulloch was born November 28, 1930 in Berkeley, California. She passed away peacefully in her Carmel home on September 30 after struggling with Pancreatic Cancer since 2012. Her family would especially like to thank her caregivers, Susana Faavesi and Charlotte Latu, for their help during the final weeks of her illness.
Linda was a Piedmont High School graduate and went on to graduate from UC Berkeley in 1952. She married her high school sweetheart, Jack McCulloch in June 1952. She was preceded in death by her parents, Clarence "Brick" Laws, and Katherine Radcliff Laws, as well as her brother, William "Bill" Laws. She will now be reunited with her beloved husband, who passed away in 2008.
Linda will be remembered for her kind heart, generosity, contagious laugh, love of music and dancing, and her beautiful red hair. Linda was a second generation Californian and a huge Giants Fan! She was a longtime member of the Piedmont and Hoe and Hope Garden Clubs, Claremont Country Club and Monterey Peninsula Country Club. She was an avid tennis player in her day and owned a boutique in Montclair called "Tennis and Things".
Linda and Jack moved to Carmel in 1999 to live in her Aunt Ruth Radcliff's home that was built in 1926. After Jack died, she enjoyed cruises to Alaska and the Panama Canal.
Linda loved to read, spend time in her garden, and be with her family. Her annual pilgrimage to Rancho La Puerta in Tecate, Mexico was a treasured part of each summer for many years. She will be missed by her "ranch sisters", along with her lifelong friends from her years growing up and raising a family in Piedmont.
"Nana Linda" was always there for her family who will miss her tremendously. They include her three daughters, Lynn (Raúl), Kathy (Frank), and Jeanne. Her three grandchildren are Cedar McCulloch-Clow (Emily), Tule Clow, and Annabelle Linda Scott (16). Her two great-grandchildren are Arlo Ruben Clow (6) and Avin Willa Clow (2).
A private family service celebrating Linda's life will be held at her gravesite in December.
