Linda in charge of the pizza's at the Safe Choices for Girls Workshop
Our club lost a very dear friend and member.
Linda Wadsworth passed away on Monday, August 20, 2012 at Windham
Several members attended her funeral on Friday, August 24, 2012. Joan
Merritt made a wonderful wreath to celebrate Linda's life. This was
the eulogy given at her funeral by Soroptimist President Lisa Rose.
Linda was very special to all of us. She loved the Soroptimist mission
of improving the lives of women and girls. She lived the Soroptimist
Sincerity of Friendship
The Joy of Achievement
The Dignity of Service
The Integrity of Profession
The Love of Country
She lived her life based on these values. She was a
true and loyal friend who enjoyed helping people. She personally
donated money, food, and toiletry items to help us with our projects
like the Welcome Bags for the Domestic Violence Shelter or
Thanksgiving baskets for local families in need. She loved helping put
the baskets together and when it became too difficult to do this, she
donated gift certificates. Two years ago she brought her granddaughter
so that she could see what we were doing. It was nice for us to see
how close the two were.
She worked hard to make our annual Charity Ball and
Wine Tastings a success. She not only donated her personal money and
hours of her time but she made sure her family's business supported us
as well. She knew how many people we could help in the community.
Linda's favorite project was our Safe Choices
workshop for girls. She supported it not only financially but was
active in the planning of this important day for high school girls.
She attended every year to help serve lunch and hear the speakers. She
knew that we were making an impact on these young women. Recently she
generously donated money to keep the program going for the next five
She had a great sense of humor and shared great
ideas. She was a remarkable women. She was our role model for kindness
and generosity. We honor her as a woman who made a real difference in
our community. We join the entire community to mourn her death and to
celebrate her life. Even though we will miss her dearly she would not
want us to be too sad for too long. She would want us to keep working
at making the world a better place.
