Linda Elizabeth Louis, age 72, of Mancelona, passed away Sunday, July 3, 2022.
She was born to John and Betty (Reaume) Wiltshire on October 3, 1949, in Detroit, MI.
Linda loved to love. She loved surrounding herself with family and friends, filling their days with sounds of music and laughter. Smiles came easily to Linda, and she shared hers as often as possible.
Linda’s love for music (Motown being her favorite) and dancing, shined bright. It blessed her with the ability to gain friends everywhere she traveled. When Linda entered a room, it wouldn’t be long until a song was heard, hands were clapping, and feet were tapping.
Linda claimed that she loved the game of golf…but she wasn’t fooling anyone. It was soaking up the warm sunshine and spending time with her friends that brought Linda to the course.
As much as she loved music, Linda loved her family and friends even more. All the way “to the moon and back,” as she would often say. Linda was easy to talk to and was always there for those in need of an understanding disposition.
Linda’s melody will continue with the songs that play in our hearts, the easy smiles her memory brings to our faces, and the dances we are certain to take. She will not only be missed by many, her kind, giving spirit will be missed by all.
Linda is survived by her loving husband, Mark; son, Phillip Briguglio, of Warren, MI; stepdaughter, Amber (Bill) Stephenson, of Mancelona, MI; grandchildren, Will and Austin; sister, Karen (Jim) Skrinner, of Warren, MI; and brother, John Wiltshire
She was preceded in death by her parents, and sister, Cynthia Wiltshire.
