Linda K. (Walland) Stoltz

Jan 21, 1955 - Nov 20, 2013

An angel joined our son, D. Ryan, in heaven! That Angel is Linda K. Stoltz who left our earth from her favorite spot, Myrtle Beach, S.C. 

Born Jan. 21, 1955, in Port Clinton, Linda K. Stoltz was the first born to Richard and Elizabeth (Ludrowsky) Walland. Linda graduated with honors from Port Clinton High School serving as president of home economics. On June 29,1974, for almost 40 years, she became the wife and homemaker to David Stoltz, knowing he clearly “over married”. In June 1975 she expanded her role and became a most loving mom to our son, D. Ryan. 

Life on our earth challenges us in so many ways, Linda’s loving and caring personality accepted and conquered those challenges each and every day with a beautiful smile, huge heart and uncompromising love for those of us blessed to be in her life! She was a caring and loving mother, wife, daughter, sister and best friend who possessed incredible patience during tough times. We thank our Lord for bringing her into our lives and look forward to the day we will be together again.

Linda loved dancing and listening to Carolina Beach Music and sitting on her beach chair, at the ocean’s edge, letting the ocean waves bring her relaxation and joy. Her greatest joy, were the days and years spent raising our son and we know she ran, with open arms, to once again accept that role.

Linda was preceded in death by our son, D. Ryan, and her father, Richard. 

She is survived by her husband, David; mother, Elizabeth; and sister, Cindy Hoffman; along with various nieces and nephews.

Visitation will be from 10 a.m. Monday, Nov. 25, until a funeral service at noon at Gerner-Wolf-Walker Funeral Home & Crematory, 216 Washington St., Port Clinton. Interment will be in Catawba Island Cemetery, Port Clinton. 

Memorial donations in memory of Linda may be given to the Akron Children’s Hospital, 1 Perkins Square, Akron, OH 44308.
