Linda Sue (nee Brady) Kazwell, 60, of Port Charlotte, Fla., passed away peacefully Thursday, Oct. 17, 2013, at her home, surrounded by loved ones.
She was born Dec. 29, 1952, in Valparaiso, Ind., and moved to Port Charlotte 40 years ago.
Linda was an Entrepreneur and a retired Elementary School teacher who enjoyed making cards and crafts for everyone she knew. She was a fun and thoughtful person who enjoyed life to the fullest, and all things blue. Linda cherished her yearly trips to Indiana and Estero, Fla., to visit with family. Her amazing sense of humor and infectious laugh was matched only by her “Beatlemania.” Linda was a wonderful mother, adoring “Gammy,” sister, aunt and friend, who will forever be missed by all who loved and knew her.
“The long and winding road that leads to your door will never disappear.” — Lennon/McCartney.
