With her “favorite” daughter by her side, Linda Lou Troutman was called home to be with the Lord on October 11, 2021. She was 76 years young and resided in Ontario, OH; formerly of Edison, OH.

Linda, the daughter of Laura Jane (Jaycox) Foster was brought into this life on August 10, 1945, in Marion, OH. After watching her sister graduate as the last class from Edison, Linda was forced to finish her high school years at Mount Gilead where she graduated in 1963.

A woman of great faith, Linda enjoyed reading and studying her Bible, having read the complete book multiple times. She enjoyed attending Pleasant Grove Church of Christ (OH), Foothills Church (TN), Regeneration Church (WV).

Family was everything to Linda. Most of her activities were centered around being there for her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. Linda was very active with the Northmor Music Boosters where she served many years as president and ran bingo for over ten years. After her children became adults and started having grandbabies and great grandbabies, she loved to travel to see them including trips to East Tennessee and South Carolina. As a grandma and great grandma, Linda made sure to attend every activity her little ones were in. She loved attending baseball, softball, volleyball, cross country, band, and choir events over the years.

Linda served as an administrative assistant for various companies including General Electric and Wyandot Inc, retiring as a cashier from Sam’s Club.

Linda was an avid reader, enjoyed bowling, going to auctions with her sister, puzzles, and enjoying nature. She loved to root for her Buckeyes and watch NASCAR. Having a soft heart for animals, Linda enjoyed the companionship of furry friends. She traveled OH eating at the best pizza joints in each county, she completed 84 of the 88 counties.

Left to cherish her memory are her children:  Kristy (Mike) Ruhl of Mount Gilead, Laura (Tony) Bosley of Maryville, TN, and Tonya (Michael) Kennedy of Rock Hill, SC; grandchildren: Jeremy, Alisha, Sam, Stephanie (Max), Kaylee, Bryce, Sarah (Aaron), Corrine, and John; great grandchildren: Kaylin, Brett, Oliver, Avery, Colton, Tate, Emori, and one on the way: Adria; sister, Billie Kay Pangborn of Edison; nieces: Cathy, Lori, and Shelly; nephew, Dean; and numerous great nieces and nephews.`

  • Dave and I got to know Linda when we were the owners of Hope Cabins and Banquet from 2009-2016. Linda ran the Northmor Music Boosters Bingo. She was a joy to work with. Always a smile on her face. She was super-dedicated, hard-working, and selfless in her commitment. May God’s peace surround you during this difficult time. Bonnie and Dave Fisher.

  • Linda became a special friend when I became a part of the Northmor Boosters. When she decided to retire from being the President of the Booster Club she convinced me that I should take over, so I did. She never turned me down when I told her I needed her help for anything. She indeed was a special person. Know that our thoughts and prayers are with you.
