Linda grew up in Massachusetts until her early teens, then moved to Greenwich. She met the love of her life William E. Godfrey when she was thirteen and married him when she was sixteen in 1963. She loved to make cakes and decorate them for several weddings throughout the years, also she got a kick out of watching Tyler Perry’s Have and Have Nots on TV. She was a hard worker and worked for Covidien Catheter Company in Argyle for fourteen years and the National Catheter Co. for ten years. Linda loved her two crazy birds Bella and Ollie, and she recently grew fond of “Pops” cat Matuchit. Her soft top GEO tracker aka “The Intimidator” was her favorite vehicle despite her children hating it, Sherry’s traffic circle rogue horn story was a family favorite and her powder puff Gremlin was another story. Linda’s most precious moments were spent with her grandchildren and great grandchildren.
