    Linda was such an inspiration to me when I met here at Amelia Island Plantation. She always had a smile on her face and a hug for me. She was loved by so many and will be missed. God gained another angel wear your wings and fly my friend.

    I met Linda through my mother-in-law (Becky Robinson), they worked together at Amelia Island Plantation. Every time I saw her she was smiling and so sweet. I will miss her as I know a lot of people will. She was one of the sweetest lady that I’ve had the pleasure of meeting. I’m so sorry for your loss.

    Linda was a beloved co-worker with an infectious laugh. She added her special touch to the holidays; no one could tie a beautiful bow like she could. Linda painted pretty flower designs on smooth river rocks for us and I am grateful to still have mine as a remembrance of her. And her adorable painted pumpkins were eagerly anticipated in fall. “Fluffy” was our favorite :).

    As for treats, Linda was an amazing cook! Those cream horns were a favorite among our team. She taught me about Cincinnati chili and that my father’s birthplace, Cleveland, was referred to as “the mistake on the lake” by Cincinnati folks. Funny!

    Linda was caring, playful, occasionally mischievous, and part of a great group of people I worked with for years. I’m sorry I did not get to say goodbye, so wanted to share some of these memories with all. My condolences to Jerry, Jerilyn, Jason and the rest of their family and friends.

    Linda was our daughter’s mother in law and we had the honor of getting to know her. She was a very kind, happy person who was always smiling!! Our shared grandchildren loved her so much and will miss her greatly. We also have seen what a great mother she was too. Her son, our son in law Jason, is the product of her hard working, giving nature. We will miss seeing her at the grandkids games, birthdays etc. Rest In Peace Linda

    Linda was a favorite of many in the AIP Family. She playfully dubbed me as “4:40 Phil”, as I was typically the last Manager to pick up my departments’ pay checks on Fridays. I went through my AIP orientation with her husband Jerry, and will always have the fondest of memories Linda, and I am very sorry for Linda’s Family’s loss!

    Mom and I are so sorry to hear of Linda’s passing. We worked with her at the Plantation for many years. She was a joy to know and I know her family will miss her…much love, peace and strength to all who are grieving.

    Linda was such a sweet lady with a good sense of humor! I met her when she was working at The Amelia Island Plantation and I was working at The Amelia Island Club (until 2010 as well – when she separated from the company).
    I know that she is in a much better place now than the rest of us! Condolences to her family.

    We both worked with Linda & Jerry at AIP and became fast friends. We all went on a fun cruise to Alaska. We celebrated every Thanksgiving at their lovely home and enjoyed their fabulous Thanksgiving feast.
    Linda and Jerry were a very loving couple and family oriented. A great example to others. Jerry has always taken wonderful care of Linda, especially these last months.
    Linda was the sweetest lady ever. Everyone who knew her will miss her but will have many happy memories.
    Our condolences to all !
    Friends Forever,
    Bruno & Sally Stuben

    loving husband who was always there for her.
    She will forever be missed.
