For the last 54 years she has been a part of "Bridge" Club with her close friends! Her faith was strengthened and friendship bonds were made in her Bible Study Group. Linda loved being a mom to her three sons. Her goal was for them to have their own belief in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and to also be good friends with each other throughout their lives. She succeeded in both!! She loved

being a grandmother and spoiling her grandchildren as often as possible. Ask anyone of them what the importance of F.R.O.G. meant and they could tell you… Firmly Rely On God! Linda along with her husband Bill, were very involved in the Hamilton Rotary Exchange program. They opened their homes to many students who became their sons and daughters from around the world. They remained close to many of these

students throughout their lives. Linda had a passion for

people and loving on them. She was a great listener and provided an atmosphere where people felt safe to share with her. It was a gift by our Father and she used it to help so many. Her faith was deep and strong. She exampled this faith to all who got to know her. Linda loved spending time in Vermont and Florida. She loved being with her family at New London Hills Swim and Tennis Club throughout the summer. She loved warm weather, being in the sun, around water and people. When her husband passed away this past September to COVID, she missed him a great deal. Passing away on February 13th, the family feels good knowing they were together for Valentine's Day! There will be a private graveside service for family. The family plans to have a Celebration of Life Service for friends and family towards the end of spring or in the summer, details to follow. In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made in her honor to the William and Linda Hartford Scholarship Fund, through the Hamilton Community Foundation – 319 N.
