Linda C. Hill

HAMPTON, NH – Linda C. Hill, 72, of Hampton, a former longtime resident of Stratham, NH, passed away peacefully Friday, August 12, 2022 after a long battle with Alzheimer’s disease.

She was born in Lewiston on July 27, 1950, the daughter of the late Thaddee and Murielle Longtin. She was the second oldest of 14 children.

Linda graduated from Edward Little High School in 1968. After high school, she became a secretary at Geiger Brothers. After having children, Linda was able to be a stay-at-home mom. She really enjoyed raising her two children while her husband began his career as a merchant seaman. Once the children were older, Linda resumed her career as a legal secretary for Trafton & Matzen in Auburn. She worked for many years as a legal secretary in Maine and New Hampshire. Eventually, she branched off and started her own title company.

Linda was a caring wife, mother, grandmother and friend. She was the centerpiece of the family and held the family together while her husband worked overseas for long periods. Linda’s pride was her grandchildren and she loved spending every opportunity she could with them. Gardening was her specialty and she was passionate about her outdoor spaces. She was devoted to her flowers, her plants and her lawn. Linda was known in the neighborhood for her John Deere tractor. In addition, she enjoyed golfing, driving on Sunday afternoons, dining out, and chatting with friends. She truly loved being with others and welcomed anyone into her life.

Surviving family members include her children Patricia DeStefano and her husband Richard Jr. of Groveland, Mass. and Craig Hill and his wife Michelle of Auburn; grandchildren Megan and Richard DeStefano and Carter and Kendall Hill; and 13 siblings.

All services will be private and plans for a celebration of life will be announced at a later date.
