On Friday, September 22, 2023, beloved mother, sister, grandmother, and friend to many, Linda Lee Ross, passed away in Enumclaw, WA, at the age of 81. She was a generous and devoted mother to her two sons, Jeff and Keith, a devoted sister to Arleene, and a loving grandmother to her grandkids, Zachary, Lindsay, Luke, Annie, and Eli.
Linda was born in Seattle, WA, to Arleigh and Leila Hall on May 26, 1942. She grew up in Enumclaw, graduating from Enumclaw High School in 1960. She received a Bachelor’s degree from Western Washington University and a Master’s of Education from Central Washington University. In 1970, Linda set off on a grand adventure with her husband and children, moving to the tropical island of Guam for two years. After returning to Enumclaw, she taught kindergarten and later second grade in Carbonado and Buckley, Washington. She loved her students and was still in touch with many of them decades later. She taught for more than 25 years, eventually retiring from White River School District. After retiring, she spent winters in Palm Desert, California, where she enjoyed sun, golf, dancing, happy hours, and friends.
Linda loved to travel. She visited countless destinations near and far in her lifetime, including Japan, Hong Kong, India, Afghanistan, Istanbul, Singapore, Europe, and Africa. As an avid reader, her travel wishlist was often inspired by the settings of the numerous novels she read each year. Linda loved sports and was a staunch supporter of the Sumner High School football teams, coached by her son Keith, and the Seattle Seahawks. She faithfully cheered her grandkids on in countless sport and school events–rain or shine–from soccer matches to football games to track and cross country meets.
She was an outgoing friend to many, young and old. She loved meeting new people and saw every interaction as a chance to make a friend.
Linda is survived by her sister, Arleene, son Jeff (Kathie) and grandchildren Zachary and Lindsay, son Keith (Tracie) and grandchildren Luke, Annie, and Eli.
A celebration of Linda’s life will be held in November. The date and location will be posted on Linda’s Facebook page when finalized.
