Linda (Davenport) Amadon

February 23, 1946 ~ May 21, 2017 (age 71)

Linda Amadon, at her self-proclaimed age of 29, died May 21, 2017 at her home.  She was born on February 23, 1946 in St. Johnsbury, daughter to the late Stanley and Leah (Cheever) Davenport.  Linda and her late husband, Merle H. Amadon had been married for 45 years when Merle passed away in 2014 and she still resided at their home in Waterford.

Linda is survived by her brother Steve Davenport, a nephew Steve Davenport and his children, Kylie and Rylee; a brother in-law Merlin Amadon and his wife Sheila, their children Ann and Peter along with Peter’s children Grant and Mekenna.  Then Linda’s extended family: close friend Lera Gadapee and husband Brent and their children, her God Daughter Katie Gadapee, Tessie Gamble and husband Jared and their children Parker and Max whom she considered her own grandchildren.

Linda was employed by Weidmann from 1985 to 2012 when she retired to have more time with Merle.  She was also employed by Burndy prior to her years at Weidmann.

Linda loved the outdoors and loved working in her gardens.  She continued with Merle’s love for music and frequently attended Music Jams in the area; Woodsville was one of her favorites.  She also joined a group of ladies for line dancing and quickly made another group of friends, The Lines & Vines Dancers.  She also enjoyed going to the Senior Meal sites in the Kingdom.  Her favorite by far though was spending time with Parker and looking forward to the day Max could join them.

At Linda’s request there will be no visiting hours.  A graveside service at the Mt. Pleasant Cemetery will be on June 10, 2017 at 11:00 a.m.
