Linda Lou Smith (Cline) was born on July 29, 1943 to James and Florence Cline, in Grand Haven, Michigan. Eventually, the family moved to Hopkins, Michigan. She spent the rest of her childhood on a dairy farm with her three brothers. On June 24, 1961 she married the love of her life, Ron Smith. Together, they were blessed with two children, Randy and Angela. As time went on, they added a granddaughter Lisa and, earlier this year, a great-grandson, Hunter, to their blessings.
Linda’s life was filled with many things that brought her great joy. She loved getting out on the boat and spending the day on the lake with family and friends. In the Fall, she could always be found cheering on her Detroit Lions or watching the Nascar race. She loved a good bargain and spent many wonderful days stopping at garage sales and shopping at second-hand stores trying to find them. But her greatest joy has always been spending time with her family.
On August 28, 2019 Linda was called home and reunited with her parents, who preceded her in death.
Linda is survived by Ron, her devoted husband of 58 years; son Randy (Lori), daughter Angela, granddaughter Lisa Witte (Ryan), and great-grandson, Hunter James Witte. She is also survived by her brothers Jim (Judy) Cline, Jerry (Dolores) Cline, and Jay Cline. She will be lovingly remembered by many friends, in-laws, and nieces and nephews.
Funeral services for Linda will be at 11 a.m. Wednesday, September 4, 2019 at the Dorr Chapel of Kubiak-Cook, 4330 – 18th St., Dorr, Michigan with visitation one hour prior to service.
