Linda and I have been friends for almost 30 years, beginning in 1987. We both worked together at the CE Board on Fort Gordon and from a work relationship a truly wonderful friendship evolved. We had many fun times together at the workplace and beyond. We experienced and supported each other through so many life changes - marriages of family and friends, births and deaths of our family members, and separations sometimes too painful to get through. These last few years were very hard for Linda to deal with healthwise, and this past year the most difficult, She never gave up hope of wanting to return to her home in Summerchase, but it was not meant to be. I will miss her funny stories, mastery of dialects and great sense of humor. She was like a sister to me and I'll never forget her.Kathy Smith - April 5 at 2:20 PM
I met my friend and neighbor Linda Stout when I moved into Summerchase Subdivision in 1998. She was the hospitality Chairperson and called to welcome me to the community. We realized that we had something in common: my nationality and the years in Panama when her father was in the military. I'll miss our reminiscing about her time in my home land and of her love for the language and culture. We also discovered that we were both members of the Hispanic American Association . She convinced me to become a volunteer and we worked the gates during the Hispanic festivals year after year, Together we served on the ACHA board of Directors for years. She also served loyally on our HOA at Summerchase. Linda could remember every residents' name and house number and loved working the hospitality committee. I will miss her! My most sincere condolence to the family, Please let me know if there will be a memorial service in Augusta, I would love to pay my respects.Sandra Moore - April 4 at 6:22 PM
I have known Linda since the 1980s, and we shared many great times together. She completed all the coursework for the Spanish major at Augusta State University, and I was her advisor. We worked together on the board of IMAGE at Fort Gordon and the ACHA board. I will miss our dinners and long talks about all things Hispanic. She was devoted to ACHA, her friends and neighbors. If there is a memorial service for Linda in the Augusta area, PLEASE let me know as I wish to honor her memory by attending and sharing memories with family and friends.Jana Sandarg - April 2 at 9:29 AM
I will fondly cherish all my memories of My Great Aunt Linda, or GOAL as she jovily named herself to her great nieces and nephews. The Christmas tree will always seem slightly less full deviod of the annual Hess trucks she gifted us without fail. I truly know she is in a better place and am happy she is in peace. I love you GOAL. Your Great Nephew BrettBrett - March 30 at 12:52 PM
