Born Sept. 20, 1942 in San Francisco to Jessie and James Gittins (deceased), Linda attended Carmichael Elementary and La Sierra High School (first graduating class of 1959). She worked at Aerojet General and later for San Juan School District as a media technician at Dyer Kelly and then for VSP. Raising two children, Hillary and Nathan, Linda and husband Keith enjoyed family activities and were devoted to grandchildren Cameron and Carly Wilson and James and Joseph Walkup. Linda leaves many friends and relatives, including sisters Dayle Barry, Carol Sutton McCary and brother Jamie Gittins all who enjoyed and will miss Linda's quick humor, generosity, superb cooking skills, love of animals and outreach to the downtrodden of society. The family extends special appreciation to Colleen and Bo Wolfredson and family and to Bill Kubasek along with Kaiser Hospital and Sutter Hospice for special friendship and support, especially during this past year in Linda's battle against the ravaging metastatic melanoma. Per Linda's wishes, a family memorial was held October 2. Remembrances may be made to PAWS-Performing Animal Welfare Society.
