Linda Carol (Block) Nequette Obituary
Linda Carol (Block) Nequette was born in Minneapolis, MN on July 21, 1948 the daughter of Roy Block and Ramona Cloutier. She grew up on the Island and graduated from Mound Senior High School in 1966. She worked at Anchor Hocking in Minneapolis after high school and took many weekend trips to the Iron Range with friends.
Linda loved the Virginia area so much that she moved up from the Twin Cities and never looked back. She worked for a time at the Lenont Peterson Clinic as switchboard operator as well at waitressing for the breakfast crowd at D & S and Sammy’s. She loved to cook and bake and shared that gift with friends and family, especially at Christmas with her wonderful cookie trays.
She loved people and found her calling for caring for children in her home day care. When the need arose, for special occasions she would dress in full clown costume to entertain her kids.
Married for 45 years to the love of her life, Ken and Linda enjoyed celebrating each anniversary with special travel destinations anywhere from Vermont to see beautiful fall colors to local spots along the North Shore.
Above all else Linda loved her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and is now cradled in his comforting arms for all eternity.
She was preceded in death by her parents Roy and Mona Block and brothers Calvin and Ken Block.
Linda is survived by her husband: Ken; sister: Kathy Toner of New Brighton; brothers: Tim Block of Superior, WI, and Anthony Block of Watertown, SD; sister-in-law: Corinne (Bill) Thompson; numerous nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins extended family and friends, including: Will, Wendy and Kate Frederickson, Emily, Mark, and Emma Rudolph and special caregivers Amy and Natalie.
