Indian Trail, North Carolina

Linda Paul Horky

Jan. 27, 1938 – Aug. 17, 2023

Linda lived with the Serenity Prayer as her guide. She did her best to raise her daughters as independent women, but in the end, she believed that she perhaps had overshot her goal. After graduating from the University of Florida, her Gator fan loyalty spanned her entire life. She loved all things French even more, and recently discovered that her heritage had truly been French on learning her ancestors had immigrated to America from France via a generational stop on Guernsey Island. She especially loved teaching the language to high school students when living in Georgia.

As an "Air Force Brat," she had been a genuine Pearl Harbor attack survivor, her father and family stationed at Hickam Field on that Day of Infamy. She leaves behind a husband, Frederick, originally of Staunton, Ill., who shared their 61-year world-wide adventure after having met, courted, and married (twice, civil and chapel) in Germany during the 1961 Berlin Wall Crisis. She was then a USAF civilian employee, while he was a missile launch officer.

She also leaves daughters, Marilyn Doyon (Craig) and Elizabeth Hill (Ron); grandchildren, Elizabeth Belardo (Angelo), Hannah Hill, Benjamin Doyon, and Leanna Doyon; and great-grandchildren, Reign and Brixton Belardo. She also leaves a loving niece, Sandy Andacter (Greg) and her daughters Julie Boos (Patrick) and Angie Shadduck (Darren).

She was preceded in death by her mother, Ruth Adams Paul; father, Col. Wilfred Joseph Paul; brother-in-law and sister-in-law, Melvin and Venita Horky; nephew, Eric Horky; and lifelong friend, Jane Trimble Wade.
