Linda S. Rodriguez, 67, of Hayes, joined her father and mother, Limn Proctor and Marion Shackelford, in heaven on April 3, 2017. She is survived by her husband James (Ted) Rodriguez; son, Todd M. Shannon (Dawn) and granddaughters, Kathryn and Nichole of Gloucester, Virginia; son, Matthew S. Shannon of Newport News, Virginia; special friends of the family, Raymond Steele (Cathy) of Gloucester, and Randy Steele (Ashley) and their children, Chase, Landon, Owen and Emily of Gloucester, and a host of aunts, uncles and cousins.
Linda possessed a zest for life and never encountered a stranger. She was a caring and compassionate caregiver for anyone in need and was truly loved by all who knew her. Her family members were the loves of her life and she would sacrifice everything to support them in any way possible. Her greatest joy came from spending time with her friends. We take comfort in knowing she is no longer in pain and is in the arms of the Lord. Linda was one of God’s angels on earth and now she is soaring in heaven. Linda enjoyed working at Eastern State Hospital as an RN Manager. She attended Providence Baptist Church.
Funeral service conducted by the Rev. G.C. McMillan will be at 2 p.m. Monday, April 10, 2017, at Hogg Funeral Home, Gloucester Point. Interment will follow in Rosewell Memorial Garden Cemetery. The family will receive friends Sunday, April 9, 2017, from 6:30 p.m. until 8:30 p.m. at the funeral home.
