Linda Weiffenbach King of Dunwoody, GA, loving wife and mother whose warm and friendly smile will be sadly missed by her family and the scores of friends whose lives she has so gracefully touched over the years. Linda passed away on January 23, 2010 at the age of 70 after a protracted illness. She was born on November 21, 1939 in Celina, OH to Raymond R. Weiffenbach and Edythe Nemoyer Weiffenbach, both deceased. In her early years the family moved to the Chicago area where Linda attended Maine Township High School and St. Mary’s College for Women in Winona, MN. She is survived by her brother, Karl F. Weiffenbach of Portsmouth, RI and her immediate family, husband of 45 years Lewis King, son William King and wife Joetta of Chicago, IL, and Daughter Caroline Croteau, husband Rodney, and grandchildren Taylor Marie Croteau and Hayden Joseph Croteau of Spring Hill, TN. Throughout her active and rewarding life, Linda made hundreds of friends by just being herself and through her charitable activities and sporting endeavors. A long time member of Dunwoody Country Club, Linda was an active tennis player in her younger years, participating at a number of levels of ALTA. In later years she moved to golf and was proudest of her qualification to join the Atlanta Women’s Golf Assn. and the Georgia Women’s Golf Assn. at an age when most women were retiring from participation. She also spent many an hour contributing to charitable activities. In the early years she was an active member of the Atlanta Junior League, primarily working at their Nearly New Shop and at Swan House. The past few years she has volunteered at St. Joseph’s Hospital where she was a mainstay in their gift shop. But most of all, she was a wonderful homemaker, mother, and friend. She was incapable of making an enemy. Special mention should be made of Susan Player, also of Dunwoody, who has been her BFF since they were two year olds growing up in Chicago. A memorial service honoring Linda will be held on Wed, Jan 27 at All Saints Catholic Church, 2443 Mt. Vernon Rd, Dunwoody, at 10:00 AM with a reception at the church immediately following. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Winship Cancer Institute at Emory Hospital or the Altus House Foundation, Atlanta GA, where she was so lovingly cared for during her final days.
