Family pay tribute to a mother and grandma who died in a collision
The family of a woman from North Yorkshire have issued a tribute following her death in a collision near Catterick Village, on 1 August 2021:
Linda Stockdale, aged 65, from Tunstall, was a loving and devoted, partner, mum, grandma and friend to many.
She lived locally all her life, growing up at Barden Lane Farm near Leyburn, living the last 18 years in Tunstall.
Her whole working life was spent caring for, teaching and supporting young children and their families and she was looking forward to retirement in the coming weeks.
Loved by everyone who knew her, she enjoyed walks with her family, friends and dogs around her beloved Yorkshire dales.
Linda was a keen gardener who was involved in many community projects including the Tunstall Community Garden of which she was very proud. She will be fondly remembered for her cooking and baking skills together with her famous hospitality.
Linda made friends wherever she went and was always helping others, including volunteering for numerous local events and clubs. She made time for everyone and will be missed by so many.
The family please ask for privacy at this devastating time.
