Linda L. Palmer, 59, passed away unexpectedly Monday, May 1, 2017 at her home in Onaway. The daughter of Martin and Nellie (Hancock) VanGieson, Linda was born October 20, 1957 in Wyandotte. She married Richard “Rick” W. Price Sr. February of 1977 in Wyandotte. In 1983 after a few years of traveling, they settled in the Onaway area where Linda’s family had been coming for years for family vacations.
Linda had a few different jobs during her life but you could bet that wherever she worked, she was a dedicated employee and a hard worker. Most of all, her family meant the world to her. She loved to visit with her family and friends and made numerous trips to the Detroit area to do just that. She enjoyed sitting in the stands cheering on her grandchildren at their sporting events. She was a very proud Grandma. On a nice, warm summer day, Linda could be found out on the boat enjoying the sunshine and relaxing with her family. She also loved to watch the ID Channel. Her quick wit and smile will be greatly missed by many.
