Condolence From: Carole Guffanti Notley
Condolence: The unexpected death of our sister has left my siblings and I pretty stunned. Linda was 69, and much too much of what could have been her life now remains unlived. She had only moved to Washington in October of last year,though she had been planning to for a while. She was looking forward to spending time with her daughter, Molly, who had moved to McCleary with her husband, Ryan Karl.
Linda had moved from Kenwood, CA, where she had family ties. If you knew anything about Linda, you would know that she had a huge heart. She had a strong sense of the importance of family. Her absence in our lives will be profound. Linda was ...a presence.
We will remember her every time we play Scrabble or do a crossword puzzle. We will Think of her whenever we hear a show tune or see a ginkgo leaf. Fans will remind us of her. We will see a funky trinket or antique inkwell or calligraphy nib and think how much she would love it. Kliban cats and bad puns will ring her to mind. And when we can't remember the name of that little indentation over the center of your upper lip, we will miss her all the more.
She had a mischievous streak, and we all have stories of times spent with her that made us laugh and smile. She loved word play and had an incredible curiosity for learning new words and languages. Her musical tourettes resulting in an outbreak iin some show tune often horrified us, and she could bore you to tears discussing some sewing project, but those annoyances now just endear her to us. She was fun.She was smart. She was clever and artistic. She was our sister and we loved her.
And, by the way. That indentation centreed above your lip is called a philtrum. I had to look it up. She would have just known it. That was Linda.
We will miss her.
