After 39 years of teaching Linda retired from Stonington Public Schools in 2016. She graduated with a Bachelor of Education from St. Joseph's College in Rutland, VT and went on to earn a Master of Education from Central Connecticut State University. She has lived in Southern RI since 1977 where she and her husband raised 3 children. Linda is an active member of the Enders Island community and stays busy with her 5 grandchildren.
In 2018 Linda's son lost his battle to addiction and died of a drug overdose. It is her hope that as she copes with her own loss, she can help others who have also lost a loved one to addiction.
