Van Beek, Linda M, (Sears) age 63 formerly of Grand Rapids, MI passed from this dimension to the next leg of her journey in Gainesville, FL, Friday April 6, 2012. Linda spend most of her life in Grand Rapids and surrounding areas such as Wyoming, Howard City, and Greenville before moving with her husband Ron to Citrus County Florida in 2005. Since their marriage in 1982, she and her husband shared a love for sunny places and a devotion to rescued animals. Linda was a spiritual teacher, and loved to communicate with the Divine on a very personal level and show others what she had learned. A life filled with compassion and understanding of others, the lives she influenced are too numerous to mention.
Her philosophy of life was ‚Äúspend each day with as much love for you, for others in your life as possible, be in the positive, and in joy, as much joy as you can muster, be happy! Happiness is a choice we make each day!‚ÄĚ
Linda will be forever remembered by her husband Ron of Citrus Springs, FL, children, Carrie Jazmine of Rotherham, England, Christina Kilts of Big Rapids, MI, Kimberly Nelson of Fargo, ND and Scott Seiffert of Houston, TX.
