Linda K. Michael

November 17, 1956 ~ October 16, 2020 (age 63)


Linda Kay Michael, age 63, of Petersburg, WV, passed away Friday, October 16, at her home in Petersburg, surrounded by loved ones.

She was born on November 17, 1956 in Cumberland, MD.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Gene G. Michael (2015) and Dorothy Lee (Vance) Michael (2019) of Petersburg, WV.

Linda was a devoted daughter, sister, aunt, cousin, and friend. Through her faith-filled life and devotion to God and others, she was an inspiration to all who knew her. She let her light shine with a smile. Her heart was always open to all of God’s creatures, and there were always animals fortunate enough to receive her care and tenderness. Known for her boundless kindness and generosity, she was beloved by many and will be deeply missed. Linda was the assistant recorder for the Town of Moorefield for 30 years. Fun-loving and caring, she spent much of her retirement crafting and caring for her cats, as well as spending time with her family and large circle of friends – all of who brought her such joy. Her life was also enriched by the Moorefield Church of the Brethren, and her church and Sunday school family were both so precious to her.

Linda is survived by her siblings, Tammy Crites and husband Rodger of Moorefield, WV, and Greg Michael and wife Sherry of Petersburg, WV; nieces Sarah Kessel and husband Daniel of Maysville, WV, and Jessica Michael Bowman and husband Jeremiah of Martinsburg, WV; nephew Ethan Michael of Petersburg, WV; great nieces Sadie Kessel and Eleanor Bowman; great nephew Luke Kessel; devoted family: Bobbi, Mary Beth, Michael; numerous other close family members and friends who supported her and were treasured by her; beloved cat Ginger; and several cherished pups.

A Memorial Service will be at 4 PM on Saturday, November 14, 2020 at Schaeffer Funeral Home with Pastors Russell and Lucy Webster officiating.
