Mildred L. Linnell

1925 ∼ 2018

Mildred L. Linnell (Bearse), beloved wife of the late Clifton W. Linnell, died peacefully at home on May 12, 2018.

Born in 1925 to Helen and Franklin Bearse, she was a lifelong resident of Cape Cod. A stay-at-home mom, she excelled at the thing she was born to do, sharing with the love of her life, the raising of their 5 children, making the house that Cliff built in Hyannis 60 years ago, a warm and loving home. Midge, as she liked to be called, was an amazing cook, and loved her crafts including decoupage, sewing and knitting. She was a member of the Baptist Church of Hyannis and she and Cliff were avid square dancers, golfers and huge fans of the Cape Cod Baseball League.

She is survived by their children: Louise Faucher of Hyannis, Linda Leith and her husband Robert of North Reading, MA; Lesley Blais and her husband David of East Lyme, CT; and Larry Linnell and his wife Shasta of Marstons Mills. She was predeceased by their son Lee who died in 1990. She and Cliff had 7 grandchildren and 9 great grands.

A wake will be held from 4 to – 6 pm on Thursday, May 24, in the John Lawrence Funeral Home, 3778 Falmouth Rd., Marstons Mills for those wishing to say a last goodbye.

Burial will be private.

In lieu of flowers, please make a donation in Midge's name to a charity of your choice.
