LUCCHESI, Linda Louise (Heidrick) 
Age 66, died peacefully at her home in Woodland, CA on Friday, May 13, 2011. She had fought lung cancer for three and a half years and was also a breast cancer survivor.

Linda was born in Woodland, CA on September 28, 1944. She enjoyed a country life with her parents, siblings and many friends. Linda graduated from Woodland High School in 1962 and earned an associate's degree in nursing from Sacramento City School of Nursing in 1966. She often spoke about her work as an RN at Sutter Memorial Hospital as a highlight of her life.

She met Fred in December of 1963 and they were married on August 27, 1966. They lived in Sacramento for the majority of their married life and moved back to Woodland in 2006. In their nearly 45 years of marriage, Linda and Fred raised four children, travelled extensively, enjoyed many seasons of King's basketball, spoiled 11 grandchildren, laughed often and built their dream house together.

Linda's most memorable traits were her irreverent sense of humor, a laugh that carried across the room and her love for her family and friends. Linda's greatest pride was in her children and grandchildren. Each had a special place in her heart. She was involved in the Thomas Jefferson Elementary PTA and was a raucous cheerleader at sporting events and other activities in which her children and grandchildren participated. Linda expressed her creativity through many formats including needlework, stained glass and ceramics, and enjoyed hunting down and preserving family history. She was actively engaged in docent and archival work for the Sacramento History Museum and the Heidrick Ag History Center. She served a term as president of the Heidrick Ag History Center until shortly before her death. Linda was a member of the Chapter IX, P.E.O. Sisterhood.


Another lovely lady gone too soon.

I had the good fortune to see and talk to Linda before she left us. She had one of the greatest smiles that always made me feel good after just talking to her for a few minutes.   tony demaria

As the Reunion is upon us and having spent a year or so with the committee, I realize how much we miss Linda.  She pulled us through a bunch of reunions.  She will be with us in spirit at 50.  Thank you, Linda, for everything that you gave us.
