Linda (Knight) Adams

August 12, 1942 ~ September 7, 2019 (age 77)


Linda K. Adams, 77, of Colchester, passed away on September 7, 2019. Born in Duncan, OK on August 12, 1942, Linda was the daughter of the late Roy and Ona (Jarrett) Knight. She was a graduate of Temple High School in Oklahoma and was an honorary R.O.T.C. cadet at Cameron College. She married her beloved husband Jeffrey on June 10, 1960. Soon after, the couple moved to Hebron, CT where they made their home and raised their family together. Linda worked as a medical secretary and retired from Manchester Hospital. Although she enjoyed painting and gardening, the greatest joy in Linda’s life came from lovingly caring for her family as a dedicated wife, mother, and grandmother. Linda will be sadly missed, but always remembered with love by her husband, Jeffrey of 59 years; her children, John Mark Adams of Colchester, Jason Adams of Newport, RI, Kristy (Moe) Slayton of West Granby; a sister, Nell Williamson of Las Cruces, NM; grandsons, Johnathan and Joshua Adams; great granddaughter, Avianna Adams; nieces, Diane (Joel) Anderson, Jaymie Williamson; and numerous extended family and friends. In addition to her parents, she was predeceased by her brother, John Ed Knight. In keeping with her wishes, funeral services will be private. The Aurora McCarthy Funeral Home of Colchester has been entrusted with arrangements. Donations in Linda’s memory may be made to the Colchester Hayward Volunteer Fire Company, 52 Old Hartford Rd.
