Linda Kaye Hodgson passed away on February 8, 2018, in San Diego, California, surrounded by her family and friends. She was 74.
Linda was born on November 16, 1943, in Summerville, South Carolina, to Nadine and Meadows Bunch. She spent the majority of her life in Allen Park, Michigan, where she and her husband, Ray, raised their sons, Tim and Todd. She worked for Ford Motor Company for 22 years and retired in 2001.
Ray and Linda moved to Daniel Island, South Carolina, in 2004, where Linda got a job at the U.S. Passport Office. In 2011, Linda got a transfer to the U.S. Passport Office in San Diego, California, so that she and Ray could be near their granddaughter, Mia.
In 2011, Linda was diagnosed with myeloma, a cancer of plasma cells in the bone marrow. She underwent treatment and had a stem-cell transplant in 2015.
Linda will be remembered as a kind and gentle woman with a sharp wit and an incredible work ethic. She is survived by her beloved husband of 51 years, Ray Hodgson; sister Connie Bunch; sons Todd and Tim (and Tim’s wife, Lisa); and granddaughter, Mia.
