Linda Miller Dortch

September 4, 1940 — June 16, 2022

Linda was born in Chelsea, Massachusetts on September 4, 1940 to Pauline and Phillip Miller. She resided in a small town near Boston until after her marriage to our father Andy when they moved to Pensacola, Florida for his job in the Coast Guard. Linda resided in the Pensacola, Florida area most of her life. Although, she lived her last few weeks with her son Ricky, and his wife in Colorado.

 Linda was talented in so many ways and had many hobbies which included among other things... painting, sewing and music. She was so musically inclined that as a young girl she was asked to be a guest singer at a rally in Boston. Because she was such an achiever, she was even given an award for selling the most Girl Scout cookies in the 1950's. But her love of the water and fishing came from her father who was on record for catching the largest lobster in Boston also in the 1950's. The lobster was so large the newspaper had him hold it next to a six year old boy and the lobster was taller than the boy. Linda retired after 14 years from the Escambia County school system, as an instructional teachers aid.

Linda was a vibrant person with a beautiful personality especially in her later years as her love for Jehovah grew. She appreciated what she learned from the bible so much that she dedicated her life as one of Jehovah's Witnesses on December 18, 1971. She had the privilege of landscaping and landscaping design for several Kingdom Hall projects. She also was the "Sign Lady" for many quick builds that were constructed by the witnesses. However, Linda would tell everyone that her greatest joy and accomplishment was being a regular pioneer the last year of her life and being eighty-one when she began. She enjoyed service via zoom with so many different friends and loved them all. She even participated every Thursday in Colorado with her son, his wife and the Union Colony congregation where she was and still is affectionately referred to as "Sister Mom".

 Linda took her last breath in this old system on June 16, 2022. She is survived by her one sister, Lainey Levine, four children, Ernie  (Kim) Angeles, Ricky (Vicky) Angeles, Fred (Greta) Angeles, and Ben (Nicky) Angeles, ten grandchildren who include Derrick, Brandon, Nicholas, Kyle, Lexi, Trevor, Brennan, Gabby, Amber, and Ryan Angeles. Eight Great-Grandchildren who include Bryson, Leighton, Isaiah, Elliana, Addison, Parker, Rebecca, Olivia. One Neice Beth Coffey, One Nephew, Gary Levine, and 2 Great Nieces, Olivia & Ella! She is preceded in death by her two husbands, Adorano (Andy) Angeles and Thomas Dortch.
