“My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style” ― Maya Angelou

This memorial website was created in memory of our loved one, Linda Tomlinson, 71, born on June 2, 1942 and passed away on May 14, 2014. We will remember her forever.

We will miss our beloved mother, grandmother and friend. Linda was an amazing person who touched so many lives. She was beautiful, elegant, strong, passionate, generous, and fiercely independent. She loved beauty and art, travel, and gardening. She had impeccable taste, yet never hesitated to get her hands dirty in the garden or taking on do-it-yourself remodelling projects. 

Linda loved her family and friends more than anything. They carry her spirit and memory forever. Linda, we miss you and love you always. 

Linda did not want to have a funeral service. Please contribute your thoughts, prayers, stories and photos to share on this memorial site. 

Donations may be made in honor of Linda to the Betty Ford Alpine Gardens in Vail, Colorado, where she spent countless volunteer hours surrounded by beauty.

Guthries and Ropers first met at Fort Gulick, CZ, Panama in about 1966. We were together again at Fort Benning in '68-'69, and yet again at West Point in the early 70's. What a thrill to reunite with you in Mazatlan in about 2008.
You were always the energetic, hip, cool, good-looker with a huge heart. You'll be sorely missed, dear.

"Linda, I met you when we were 17 or 18 years old!  So young!  I will always remember the good times working, eating and playing at the Roper Ranch in Sutherlin.  We had a special connection, in that we were both married to those crazy Roper brothers!  It was a fun time, indeed. We were very lucky to have such a wonderful family...we still are very lucky!!   It has been great talking to you through the years.  You have always been a lovely, charming person and a good friend to me.  See you later....."

"I remember you when you were 16 and 17 in sunny Santa Monica. You were beautiful, exotic, fun, outrageous, and full of life and love. Your light continued to expand and I remember you again in Mission Viejo now a wonderful loving mother and with your spirit  shining with laughter, and joy and love of life. You brought great FUN and wonderful memories into my life and I hope we meet again on the other side to laugh together again.     Dix"
