Always striving for greater heights and knowledge; Linda pursued higher education graduating from Harvard Law School. Her professional career was spent as a Paralegal at the Hale & Dorr Law Firm in Boston.
Linda loved exploring history as an avid Genealogist. Her passion for history led her to become a member of the Mayflower Society and the Daughters of the American Revolution. Although always reading up on history she enjoyed keeping up with current events and her spirited discussions with family and friends about politics. Her knowledge on so many topics made her a trivia fanatic. When she was researching history or keeping up with current events; her other greatest enjoyment in life came from being a diehard Boston Red Sox fan.
She cherished the time spent with her family and friends; and they in return will forever treasure those very special moments that she touched their lives.
