She loved hearing about her grandchildren's adventures. She also loved spending time at her lake house in Wakefield, NH. Remember her in the early morning sitting at the end of the dock, a book in one hand and coffee in the other.
She is survived by her husband of 49 years; Fred D. Laycock of Salem, her son; Thomas J. Laycock and his wife, Sara R. of Salem, her daughter; Amy Hernon and Joshua Bruck of Wakefield; two grandchildren; Jessica and Benjamin, a brother; Robert Ruest and his wife, Lori of Hampton Falls, NH, her sister; Beverly Jalbert and her husband, Philip of Beverly, and by many nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by four sisters.

We now live in Florida and I just read about Linda online in the Eagle Tribune. So very sorry for such a great loss. I'll keep you all and Linda in my daily prayers.
