Linda Nyren, 60
Northport — Linda Nyren, 60, passed away on Wednesday, Feb. 20, at Waldo County General Hospital in Belfast surrounded by her family. A very warm and caring woman who was deeply dedicated to her husband Paul and their children, Linda was born in Fort Wayne, Ind., on April 4, 1952. Linda grew up in Wellesley, Mass., graduating from Wellesley High School in 1970. In 1972, she earned a degree in Business Administration from Endicott College. Soon afterward she moved to New Hampshire where she lived for eleven years and celebrated the birth of her first child, Stephen. On February 14, 1988, she married Paul Nyren and they later rejoiced with the birth of their daughter, Bailey.
Throughout her life, Linda cast a thoughtful eye to the future of those she devotedly loved. She was very sensitive and empathic, feeling what other people were going through in stressful, difficult times. Thus when her counsel was sought she unfailingly and skillfully gave her helpful, distinctive and scholarly guidance — born of her innate natural goodness and wisdom.
Linda was the project manager of the partnership and business that both she and husband Paul established while residing in Medfield. She also took delight in her work as a salesperson for Mary Kay Cosmetics. Both she and Paul attended the Methodist Christ Church in Wellesley, Mass., where she was very active as a Lay Leader and the chairperson of the finance committee. This was a position that clearly reflected her spirituality and earned her the great admiration of the church ministry, as well as the congregation. In 2004, both Linda and Paul moved to Maine, where they were happily “living life the way it should be.” From the state of Maine, they went on a vacation to Europe, a trip she had always wanted to take. When they returned from Europe, Linda devoted a good deal of time to raising Jack Russell Terriers in addition to remaining an avid equestrian.
One unique quality of Linda was that she could give advice, and graciously took it as well. She was always in stylish mode with her indomitable spirit, quick wit, perception and gifted sense of humor. Her heart was a deep ocean of generosity she extended to all she came to know.
Linda leaves her loving husband, Paul, and her two adult children Stephen and Bailey, following a long and courageous struggle with kidney failure.
Calling hours were, Monday, Feb. 25, at the Roberts-Mitchell Funeral Home, 15 Miller St., Medfield, Mass. The funeral service will be held at 11 a.m., Tuesday, Feb. 26, at the funeral home, followed by burial at noon at the Vine Lake Cemetery in Medfield, Mass.
