Linda Ann Cutting (Thomas) 76, of Waterville, died Friday January 3, 2020 following a very short illness of an aggressive form of cancer. Her brave and unwavering composure never faltered regardless of the odds. She left quietly and peacefully surrounded by family gathered at her bedside.

Linda was born July 21, 1943 to the late Chauncey H. and R. Deborah Thomas (Alderman) of Waterville. She was the youngest daughter of three. They resided in Waterville on Fox Hill Rd. at her grandfather Sheridan Dow’s farm. As a child, Linda spent much of her time alongside her grandfather who instilled in her a love for the outdoors and animals of all kinds.

On December 29, 1979, Linda married Duane M. Cutting who loved and adored her and her five children. For 40 years, Duane and Linda dedicated themselves to one another at their home in Waterville. Together, they shared the responsibility of running the Maple Grove rest home where Linda began her long and devoted career as a care giver and was bestowed with the nickname “Captain”. From there, Linda and her husband began a store in town known as the “Neighborhood Market”. Groceries, fresh meats, and a variety of other goods along with gas pumps out front made the store a convenient landmark for the town of Waterville. Linda kept busy making sure the store was spotless and that there was always a warm and friendly atmosphere for each and every customer!!

Moving on from the store, Linda continued her journey in caregiving by taking on employment at the Copley House in Morrisville and Second Spring in Westford. Linda prided herself in knowing that the resident’s needs were met daily. She also attended seminars and skills workshops at each location to better her knowledge and broaden her horizon in care for others. She spent her last few years at Hanley’s Market in Jeffersonville where she tackled most of the food preparation and deli work. She was known as “Grammy” to her coworkers. She thoroughly enjoyed her work and all of her customers as well.

Linda enjoyed her abundant flower and vegetable gardens along with a thriving berry patch in which she spent countless hours in. She loved crafting and sewing, it was a hobby she treasured since her children were young. Making handmade gifts for all her precious family members was a joy. Quilting was her latest accomplishment. Spread throughout two Christmas’s she was able to create a handmade quilt for each of her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. Another favorite hobby was adding to her abundant collection of decorative roosters throughout the house, something she picked up from her childhood adventures on the family farm. Out of all these talents, she loved to cook, bake, and clean the most!! In addition to her beloved hobbies, caregiving, manning the store and deli, and loving a large family, Linda and Duane somehow found time for the past 17 years to open their home to elders in need and fostering youth that were trying to find their way.

Linda is survived by her husband Duane and their five children; Medford, Alan and wife Danelle, Davey and wife Pattie, Rick and wife Jody, and their daughter Cindy. She also leaves behind 12 grandchildren, 12 great-grandchildren, brother in law Ellis Stockwell Jr, sister in law Captola Barup Loucks, sister in law Carol Barup Levandusky and husband David, and sister in law Sally Barup Witham and husband Marvin, a sister in law Sandra (Cutting) Machia and husband Donald, a sister in law Shirley (Cutting) Lanpher and husband Wendall, brother in law Dayton Cutting and wife Juanita, and her two loyal canine companions Oakley and Shiloh.

Linda is predeceased by her first husband Medford L. Barup and his parents Clyde and Doris (Mcdowell) Barup, her parents Chauncey and Deborah Thomas, a grandson Jacob L. Barup, her father and mother in law Mervin and Natalie Cutting, a sister and brother in law Diane (Thomas) and Everett Langdell, a sister Nancy (Thomas) Stockwell, and brother in law Orben A. Loucks.

Linda has always tried to promote a strong education for the youth that attend the Laraway School in Johnson Vt. In honor of her memory and selfless dedication to the institution, donations would be greatly appreciated for the Laraway Youth and Family Services C/O Linda Cutting Scholarship Fund PO Box 621 Johnson Vt 05656. Per Linda’s request there will be no funeral services held at this time.
