March 25, 1948 - February 15, 2020
Linda Carol Riddle, age 71 of Wellington Fl. peacefully went to be with Jesus while surrounded by her loving family on February 15th, 2020. Linda was born March 25, 1948 in Cincinnati, Ohio to Bernard and Betty Hicks. She married the love of her life Marshall "Bruce" Riddle in 1969. They started their family while Bruce was in the US Air Force stationed in Honolulu, Hawaii. Bruce and Linda's first child Melissa went to heaven as an infant. Linda has always looked forward to the day they would be reunited, and we all take comfort knowing Melissa is showing her Mom around heaven. They eventually settled in Florida in 1979 and have been living here ever since. They went on to have three more children: Todd, Kirk and Rebecca whose spouses Jennifer Griffiths, Gretchen Peeples and Jon Buckland have all become her kids as well. She was a wonderful mother that raised her children in a loving Christian home. Linda had a very close personal relationship with Jesus and passed that love onto her children. Bruce and Linda were married for over 50 years. They have always been a beautiful example of what a marriage should look like. Through all the joys and struggles of life they were always right by each other’s side. They have ten wonderful grandchildren including: Marshall and his wife Chelsey, EmmaLou, Oliviah, David, Jacob, Lincoln, Jack, William and Mark that have become her pride and joy. They called her Nanny and she always kept up with how they were all doing. Nanny and Papaw regularly attended their sporting events and award ceremonies while always having a settle look of pride on her face. She was always involved in their lives and loved them all dearly. Besides being Nanny and spending time with her friends and family, Linda as a young woman was an avid water skier, she loved going to the beach, tanning out by her dream pool that Bruce built her years ago. She loved church and sang in the choir for many years. Linda had the ability to make everyone feel so special. She was always very thoughtful of peoples feeling and had a way to just make us all feel good. Nanny loved Christmas time where her gifts were never materialistic but well thought out to make us all feel special. She touched us all with her generosity of love and passion for life. The loss of Linda, Mom or Nanny will be a void for us all, but we know the promise of God in John 3:16 that we will all see her again one day. We know she has her heavenly body and that she will still be keeping up with our lives. Family and friends are invited to attend a celebration of a life for a life well lived, this Friday Feb. 21st at 2:00 at Saint Peters United Methodist 12200 Forest Hill Blvd. Wellington, Fl. We will be having a reception directly after the service at Bruce and Linda's house 14256 Crocus Ct. Wellington Fl. for anyone who would like to attend. In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to St. Jude Children’s Charity, in honor of Linda.
