Obituary of Linda Nims Weaver
Please share a memory of Linda to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
Linda Nims Weaver passed away on October 9th peacefully at her home with her family by her side. She was 83 years old and lived a full and accomplished life. Linda was pre-deceased by her husband of 48 years, Robert Banta Weaver. Linda was the first baby born in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts on January 1, 1940. The local gas station in Greenfield offered $5 to the family with this distinction, so Linda started life with a base of savings. The happiest days of her childhood and young adulthood were spent on the Nims Tree Farm in Greenfield with her parents Charlie and Marjorie, and her big sister Judy and little brother Tommy. For all her life, anything in nature that looked beautiful or smelled lovely would almost certainly be accompanied by a declaration of "doesn't that just remind you of Greenfield!". Linda met her husband Bob during the summer of 1960 when she was working on Cape Cod at the Chatham Bars Inn and Bob was tending bar at the Sand Bar in West Dennis. They were married the following year and spent a happy and loving life together, living in Brooklyn, London, and Darien during different stages of Bob's career while raising their two children. Linda took her greatest pleasure in her kids as they were growing-up. She was a loving mom, always present, and full of cheer and encouragement. She was active in the Darien community both as a volunteer (Children's Aid) and in business (Chartrek Travel and Vantage Travel). She took equal pleasure in her grandchildren, and could be counted on for great costumes at Halloween, competitive Easter egg hunts, and a good game of Old Maid. Linda's career as a travel agent was distinguished by her ability to find 'hidden gem' resorts and adventures long before the internet made everything accessible to everyone. Her clients cherished her insights, recommendations, and impeccable planning. The family's years in London spawned a lifelong love of global travel. Linda and Bob spent time enjoying places around the world, with Bermuda in the old days being their favorite. Enthusiastic stories from Linda of great adventures in far-flung destinations would most often be followed by teasing reports from Bob of odd people and unappetizing food. They complemented each other well, and grew ever-closer as a couple as the years went by. She took pleasure in being with friends, and could always be counted on for her gracious hospitality and a beautifully set dinner table. Linda was a presence at Wee Burn Country Club for decades. She rolled a surprisingly good bowling ball, and enjoyed the company of her fellow members and employees alike. She leaves behind her children, Robert (Susan) Weaver and Sarah (Albert) Hartigan. Linda is also survived by her sister Judy Hunt and her five grandchildren, Bobby, Michael, Peter, Charlie and Annabel. The family plans on holding a private memorial service. In her memory, contributions are kindly suggested to be made to "At Home in Darien".To send flowers to the family or plant a tree in memory of Linda Weaver, please visit Tribute Store
