|Let the memory of Linda be with us forever|
July 5, 1943 (Arlington, MA) ~ November 25, 2014 (Punta Gorda, FL)
Linda was received peacefully by God on November 25, 2014, after a stay at the Tidewell Hospice House in Port Charlotte, FL.
Linda is survived by her husband, Mervin D. Mason of Punta Gorda, FL; his daughter and her husband Amy & Robert Wimpfheimer of PA. Linda was predeceased by her parents; Stanley W. Bishop and Ruth J. (Olsen) Bishop of Waltham, MA.
Mervin and Linda were married in West Hartford, CT on, August 18, 1984. They made their home in Suffield, CT for many years. Both were nurses for the Connecticut Department of Corrections, from which they both retired and moved to their favorite vacation spot of Hattaras, NC and finally settled down in Punta Gorda, FL.
Linda was active in tennis, skiing and sailing when she was younger. Her heart was open to any animal, dogs especially. She spent many years creating and giving crafts. She enjoyed designing and making jewelry, weaving rugs and baskets, creating gourmet meals, gardening and flowers of all kinds, and of course walking the beach to find the perfect shell. She was a member of the Lutheran Church of the Cross.
A memorial service for family and friends will be held at the Lutheran Church of the Cross, Thursday, December 4, 2014 at 2:00 pm, located on 2300 Luther Road, Port Charlotte, FL. A small luncheon will be served at the church after the service.
In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to a charity of your choice.

"On behalf of my wife Jackie, Linda's sister, our son Jeremy and and our daughter Jill, it was indeed sad news to learn of Linda's passing. Most remembered are Linda's many joyous Christmas, Thanksgiving, birthday party and surprise visits which brought the family closer together while Linda was still living in the New England area, and Ruth and Stan were still with us. These are the good times that will never be forgotten. May she rest in peace.
