Obituary of Linda Horton
Linda Lucy Horton (Willis), age 67, went to be with our Savoir on Monday, November 6, 2017. She was born on March 2, 1950 in Staten Island, the daughter of Theresa Brown & William Willis, whom both have predeceased her.
Linda is survived by her loving husband, Charles Horton & their beloved animals, Daisy, Abbey, Lilly, Owen, and Ralf, a brother, Mason Willis of Schodack Landing, NY, three sons, one daughter, and eight grandchildren, Jason P. George of Balston Spa, NY and his children, Cody and Brooke George, Joshua R. George of Hornell , and his children, Jamie Vanvalkenburg, Syble Billings, and Jacob D. George, Jacob M. George and wife, Kimberly Bancroft of Hornell and their children, Emily and Logan Bancroft, Kasey Leanne George, Amanda George, and Richard Stevens of Hornell. Also surviving are her step-children, Elizabeth Craig, Amanda Counterman, Carrie Horton, Charles Jr, and Alan Horton, and a very special friend, Kathleen Meade and her ex-husband and good friend Paul R. George.
She grew up in Long island with a great aunt and uncle where she spent most her time with her daddy. At the age of 10 she moved to California with her mother where she grew into a young woman and enjoyed surfing and hanging with her best friend. In 1975, she moved to Almond, NY to care for her grandfather. That's where she met her first husband Paul. She and Paul ran his family farm for nearly 25 years together before divorcing. She loved being a house wife and mother. During her years on the farm, she enjoyed raising rabbits, helping in the barn, and making lunch to take Paul and the boys as they worked the fields in summer. She adored her children and did everything she could to make sure they were happy, clothed, fed, but above all loved. She always attended her son's Boy Scout meetings, serving as den mother and she never missed her daughter's dance recitals. Linda really was an amazing mother. She met Charles in 2001 and they married on December 23, 2004 in Hornell. Charles and Linda went everywhere together and were two peas in a pod. Some might even say their love was like a teenage romance. Charles never left her side through this difficult time and has been the most amazing husband and step-father. She loved all animals especially bears and elephants, was known to always have a book in hand, and she was an avid fan of WWE Monday night raw. Linda loved life and her family to the fullest and she never let anyone or anything stop her. Linda and Paul remained close friends & would often spend time together with their spouses. She will be remembered for being an amazingly dedicated mother, wife, and grandmother.
It was Linda's wish that there be no calling hours.
