VIRGINIA BEACH – Linda Fulcher, beloved wife, mother, and grandmother, passed away on August 30.
Linda is survived by Bob, her husband of 39 years, daughter, Sheri, grandchildren, Madison and Griffin, daughter, Krissy (Dan), and step-daughter Kristen. She was predeceased by her parents, Walter and Mae Webster.
Linda was born in Bayville, N.Y. She attended C.W. Post and Hofstra Universities and graduated with a master’s in education. Linda had a long career as a teacher, including a position as director of general studies at Hebrew Academy of Tidewater, before retiring in 2013.
Throughout her lifetime in New York and Virginia, Linda brought happiness to everyone she met with her smile and loving nature. She loved being with her family and especially loved being a grandmother (Oma) to Madison and Griffin and being Bob’s Bride. Linda enjoyed traveling to hot rod and motorcycle shows with Bob, where she sometimes had booths and sold her hot rod automotive drawings. She also enjoyed getting her hands dirty helping Bob build his hotrods in their garage. She loved being a teacher, often being told “you’re my favorite teacher” by her students.
She was a talented and passionate artist and created beautiful works of art through sketching, painting, jewelry making, leather crafts, knitting, and any new art form she discovered that piqued her interest. She loved her dogs, tending to her flower gardens, singing along to the radio, always learning, reading, and doing crossword puzzles.
Linda was a member of Associates of Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 969 and represented them at state meetings and national conventions. She was also a Vet Center Wives group member and was recognized for her support of our Veterans and their families.
A celebration of her life was held at Graham Funeral home in Chesapeake, Va. She will be interred at a later date at Albert G. Horton Veterans Cemetery in Suffolk, Va.
