Linda D. Harwood, age 68, passed away at home with her family by her side on Friday, November 15, 2019. She was born May 31, 1951 in Eau Claire. She grew up in Bloomer, Wis. with her parents Roland and Vivian Clements. Linda was baptized and confirmed at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church in Bloomer. There she married Harry R. Harwood on July 26, 1969. This year they had celebrated fifty years of marriage with many family and friends. Together they had four children: Lisa, Wendy, Jason and Sherri.
Linda was a compassionate caregiver for many years, working with adults with disabilities. She enjoyed many activities such as fishing and line dancing with Harry. She enjoyed music, whether it was singing solos at church or attending live concerts and shows. She enjoyed traveling, long or short drives, especially in her ’99 red Mustang convertible. Linda started “cousin’s day” where the cousins gathered and reminisced with old pictures of younger years.
