Linda passed away peacefully on July 16th surrounded by loved ones. She asked that friends remember that she tried to live a good life, tried to play a good game of bridge, and that she loved her daughters dearly. Her family remembers her good heart.

Linda loved knitting, traveling, good conversation, waterskiing, the ocean, cold Cokes, cards- especially bridge and Maneuvers, thrilling books, Duke basketball, her cat, Manchester United soccer, and puzzles.

Left to continue her legacy of love, vivaciousness, and adventure are her daughters: Marylinda Moore Short and Katie Moore; son-in-law: Michael Short; grandchildren: Marissa, Micah, and Miranda Short; father and mother: Ken and Mary Downes; lifelong companion Joel Geyer; and brothers and sisters: Ray and Joy Downes, Nancy Cross, Roy and Sue Stoycon.

An intimate family celebration of her life will occur Saturday, July 27, 2013 in Hampstead, NC. After her ashes are released to the sea as the lone piper plays, there will be an upbeat rememberance. In lieu of flowers, Linda would have appreciated donations be sent to; 910-392-0557. Friends are welcome to share stories and kind thoughts via the online guestbook at Brown-Wynne Cary.
