Torrington- Linda M. Davis, 69, passed away Wednesday, May 26, 2021 at Valerie Manor, Torrington. She was the beloved wife of Richard A. Davis for nearly 38-years.
Linda was born in Philadelphia, PA on October 23, 1951, and raised in the Philadelphia area.

Linda worked for Martin County Emergency Dispatch, which is where she met her husband, and volunteered at the Martin County EMS as an EMT for a number of years. She retired as a service representative with Bell South Telecommunications after a 20-year career.
Linda was a woman of strong faith and was a beloved member of her Lutheran church while living in FL. She played the Bells at services, and she enjoyed creative expressions such as painting and crocheting.
