Linda Mae Dick, aged 73, passed away on Saturday, January 7, 2017, in Chesapeake, VA from complications after a long struggle from a major stroke years ago. She was born to the late Romeo W. Champagne and Thelma E. Manning on January 9, 1943, in Willimantic, Connecticut. Family and friends were Linda’s passion and delight. She grew up spending most of her time with her sister, Deborah White (and “Uncle” Dick), her brother, Mark “Champ” Champagne (wife Denise), and her cousins, Pam Schaffer and Harlan “Butch” Harrison (wife Sandy). In 1962, she married the love of her life, the late Ernest L. Dick, moved to Virginia, and started a family. Linda loved being a mother to her boys and later was the proudest grandmother. She volunteered countless hours at school, church, and the baseball field in loving support of all their activities. Her children and their families will miss her dearly… Greg with wife Laura and their son Cory (wife Makenzy), Randy with late wife Meridee, Jimmy with wife Dawn and their daughter Jamie (husband Joshua), sons Josh, Colton, Jake, and Jameson, and Chris with wife Kathleen and their daughters Mellissa and Celina. She also leaves behind numerous loving relatives and friends. Linda was a long-time member of St. Matthew’s Catholic Church. Visitation services will be at Altmeyer Funeral Home, 5792 Greenwich Road, Virginia Beach, VA 23462 on Monday, January 16 at 6pm. Funeral services will immediately follow at 7pm. Graveside service will be held at Albert G. Horton Jr. Memorial Veterans Cemetery, 5310 Milners Road, Suffolk, VA 23434 on Tuesday, January 17 at 12pm where she will be laid to rest with her husband. The family wishes to thank all the Angels who loved and cared for her during her last years. Tribute/Memorial Donations may be made to the Alzheimer’s Association (alz.org) in remembrance of her husband or the American Cancer Society (cancer.org) in remembrance of the late Meridee Francise Dick.

We are truly saddened by Linda’s passing. She was absolutely a wonderful woman. We cherish our memories of Linda and Ernie at the baseball fields, at St. Matthews’ dances, at pig roasts. They were both so much fun to be around and such good friends. Linda loved life and made it better for everyone she met. She fought a hard battle and will always be remembered for her friendship. I know she loved her boys very much!! We hope your sadness will be replaced by the thoughts of what a wonderful mom she was.

To all of Linda”s Family, I was so deeply shocked to have gotten a phone call that would sadden me always. It was a previlage taken care of Linda. Five years ago when I started taken care of Linda we became instant friends. She even took care of me at times. She was like a mother beings mine was so far away. If I ever needed to talk she always listened, if I cried yes she would cry, till we would start laughing. She had a heart of gold. I saw in her what some may have not seen, sometimes she could even be moody like us all, but we just clicked. My job was to take care of her but she also took care of me in many ways asa friend would. She touched my heart and I will always have special and fond memories of this lady who came into my life and left an imprint. I hope time will ease your pain. And to you Linda I love you and as you always said Later no goodbyes, till we meet again my dear friend, eat all the popcorn you want now hon
