Obituary of Linda G. Gendron

Linda G. Gendron, 74, of North Grosvenordale, died June 20, 2022, at her home. Beloved wife of Barry Gendron, they were married September 12, 1998. She was born in Sanford, ME, on February 12, 1948, daughter of the late Richard and Beverly (Babcock) Burbank.

Linda worked for the Post Office for 26 years. She was a wonderful mother of three, stepmother of one, grandmother of seven, and great grandmother of three. From a young age, Linda was a caretaker despite her own ailments. She provided for her family fiercely and was resilient through her own losses, diseases, and surgeries. She found joy in the little things every single day. She loved gardening, reading, and animals. Linda enjoyed traveling, crossword puzzles, cooking, and searching for sea glass at the beach. She was a very generous person and undoubtedly spread an immense amount of love into the world wherever she went.

Besides her husband Barry, she leaves her children Gregory Smith of Putnam, Kelley Smith of Thompson, Erin Bunker and her husband Louis Bunker III of Woodstock, stepson Jesse Gendron of Ashford, brother Richard Burbank II and his wife Rachel of North Berwick, ME.
