Friends and family are mourning the passing of Bethany Village resident, Linda Strobel-Charlesworth. Linda, a six-year resident of Mountain House, passed away unexpectedly following complications after a surgical procedure July 2, 2017. The only child of William and Mary Strobel, Linda grew up in the South Bay Area city of Sunnyvale. In 1973, she married her husband Don Charlesworth, in San Jose. She had a successful carrier working first for Fujitsu and then for IBM where she rose to the position of alliance manager for storage products.
Throughout, dedication to her family was always the most important thing in Linda’s life, and family gatherings were her passion.
In addition to her loving husband, Don, she leaves behind a son, daughter-in-law, and 8 grandchildren. She and Don had moved to Mountain House in 2011 after they both retired in order to be closer to the grandchildren. Linda loved the community of Mountain House, whether following the MH Facebook pages or attending community events. Her hobbies included gardening, refinishing picture frames for family pictures, and golf.
A memorial service for family and close friends was held at the Alta Mesa Memorial Park in Palo Alto where she was laid to rest, in accordance with her wish to be buried near to her parents.
Don wishes to thank members of the community for their support and expression of condolences during this difficult time.
Linda will always be remembered for her warm engaging personality, thoughtful ways, and beautiful smile.
