January 18, 1957 — October 9, 2017

Mrs. Linda Retter, 60, of Woodbury passed away on October 9, 2017. She was born in Danbury, Connecticut on January 18, 1957.

Mrs. Linda was a passionate person about many things in her life. If you were her friend she would do almost anything for you. She would speak her mind and had a great sense of humor which she got from her father and passed on to her family. After graduating high school, she earned a degree to become a paralegal. She worked many years in Connecticut for an attorney and was proud of her work. She loved her family and friends. She was a social person who enjoyed talking and joking with everyone. Going boating at Center Hill Lake and at Candlewood Lake, CT were two places she enjoyed. One of her other passions was animals. She would often help find homes for strays and would adopt many of them herself. She and Henry also enjoyed horseback riding and motorcycles. She was a member of the Woodbury Church of Christ.
