Linda Louise Proctor passed away peacefully at home with her loving dog, Hans, by her side on Feb. 24, 2020 in Fishers.
She was born on July 5, 1948 in Washington, Ind.
She graduated in 1966 from Bishop Chatard High School.
She worked as a nanny for 30 plus years and watched as each and every one of those children became successful, well-rounded adults. She was a trusted, loving, and kind friend. And was as loved as she was loving. She will be missed more than she could possibly know.
She was fun-loving person who was full of life, and never met a stranger. She could talk to anybody and did. She loved animals, music, dancing and was an avid reader. She was enamored with her grandchildren, boasting with anyone who would listen about how smart, beautiful and adored they all were.
Ms. Proctor was a loving, kind and compassionate mother and always put her children's needs ahead of her own. She also fiercely loved her siblings and considered them her closest friends growing up.
Survivors include a daughter, Christen (Cole) Chappell; sisters, Suzanne (Rich) Bellville and Pamela (Tom) Eslie; four grandchildren, Alexander, Benjamin, Aaron and Delilah.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Robert and Emma Lou (Smith) Johnson, brother, Silas H. Johnson and son, Douglas E. Cole, Jr.
A Celebration of Life with a Liturgy of the Word is scheduled for 3 p.m. Sunday, March at the VFW, 654 S. 9th St. in Noblesville.
Memorial donations may be made to the Hamilton County Humane Society or St. Jude's Children's Hospital.
